    You are not only a great actor (loved you in The Black Stallion and many other movies), but you are also a great advocate for animals.

    I wish you and your wife much happiness, and I thank you for being a voice for those who cannot speak!

    May God bless and watch over you always.

    Hello Mickey & Jan;

    First a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I am 72 and so you know I have watched your movies at the theaters and then finally on a real live T.V. and wasn’t that the most exciting thing?
    Now I think even more highly of you, the fact that you and your lovely wife care so deeply about animals and the world around us is just wonderful.

    Thank you,

    Penelope Kinzer

    Sad news, he passed away today at the age of 93.
    Another Hollywood legend passed away.
    He lived a long and healthy life.

    Also He a small man with a big heart.
    He was a good man too, he deeply cared for animals and helped injured animals.

    He will be missed deeply.
