A young Mickey Rooney stars as “Little Jimmy” in Little Pal. Rooney, named the 5th greatest actor of all time by The Academy of Film Arts and Science, plays a sympathetic crippled boy who is unable to walk. Ralph Bellamy, a doctor with a heart of gold who works pro bono, has built a strong relationship with Jimmy - that is until Bellamy marries a woman who isn’t as good natured as himself. As their lives drift apart, Jimmy needs the doctor more than ever. Rooney was, at the time of this films release, the biggest box office draw in America. Audiences loved his heartfelt performance as Little Jimmy, and you will too.
