Audience Reviews for The Devil Is a Sissy

Boy, to see three stellar child stars working together is a real treat. Jackie Cooper, Freddie Bartholomew, and Mickey Rooney have great chemistry, and there are many magical moments when the three interact here. I've always loved Mickey Rooney in the Andy Hardy films, and he and Judy Garland have done so many great films together. Here, he's on the rise. What a great actor. I'm surprised I never put him on my favorite actor list. He's going up there right now.
