Description

After Irving Thalberg’s death in 1936, Louis B. Mayer doubled down on 'family entertainment' at MGM. To support this new wave of content, Mayer started signing younger and younger performers to groom into stars — training them in song and dance, creating a schoolhouse on the MGM lot to comply with state educational requirements, and keeping the kids chaperoned by publicists day and night. This episode will cover the differing experiences of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland -- best friends and screen partners who grew up together  within MGM’s stable of child stars.
