Well, this is a picture of Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney. It was taken in the 1963 during a rehearsal of the first episode her television show. From what I've read, Judy was really nervous about doing a live television show, and so she wanted Mickey to be her first guest to make her feel a little more comfortable and at ease. I've recently seen this on youtube, and I have to say I think Judy made the right decision. I didn't sense any nervousness from her at all. It was great watching Mickey and Judy get together again and "play" the way they used to when they were kids. 
See, Mickey and Judy went way, way back. They met when she came to MGM when she was eleven or twelve years old and instantly became the best of friends. Mickey remained Judy's most loyal friend up until the day she died. At her funeral, he was originally to deliver her eulogy, but he had to back out at the last minute, afraid that he would just go to pieces. Even today, when he talks about her, he lights up and his eyes get a little shiny- it's obvious that he is still so in love with her in the most beautiful, sublime, platonic way. I've always loved the two of them together. They make me smile.
