Mickey Rooney, one of the longest-tenured actors in movie history, died Sunday at the age of 93.

Rooney was born Sept. 23, 1920, as Joseph Yule Jr., and appeared in more than 300 films. To call this man iconic would be the understatement of the century.

He was still working at the time of his death, filming "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," among other projects.
