Three films starring Mickey Rooney. In 'Quicksand' (1950), motor mechanic Dan Brady (Rooney) lacks funds for a heavy date with new waitress Vera (Jeanne Cagney), the type whose life ambition is a fur coat. He embezzles a hundred dollars from his employer - and thereafter finds that every means he tries to get out of trouble only gets him deeper into crime. In 'My Outlaw Brother' (1951), Denny O'Moore (Rooney) is a naive young man heading into the Mexican badlands to find the brother he has always idolised. When he reaches the Texan plains he is sheperded across by a ranger Joe Walter (Robert Preston) - but what he doesn't realise is that his brother Patrick (Robert Stack) is in fact the notorious gunslinger El Tigre - and it is Walter's job to bring him in... In the anthology of pre-Little Rascals film shorts 'Mickey the Great' (1946), a young Rooney stars as the cocky, self assured tough boy in a series of comic misadventures of a group of kids from Toonerville, USA.
