Rooney samples food, then turns on the charm

SHARE Rooney samples food, then turns on the charm

Mickey Rooney sampled Cajun hospitality, then let loose with his octogenarian charm at the Louisiana Sugar Cane Festival.

The 80-year-old actor and wife Jan Chamberlain toured the Tabasco factory in New Iberia and sampled the local cuisine before entertaining a crowd of 700.

Rooney showed a brief film of highlights from his acting career, then talked about old times, cracked jokes and sang, sometimes alone and sometimes with his wife.
