Delia Bogard is credited with appearances in 27 of the Mickey McGuire's Gang movies from 1928 through 1932. Mickey McGuire, an ex-Lawlorite, based his popular two-reel comedies on the comic strip Toonervile Folks, and used kid actors for the characters. Mickey McGuire later changed his name to Mickey Rooney. However, Delia made headlines in March, 1939 when she was bludgeoned and robbed of 35¢ on the campus of Los Angeles City College where she sometimes danced in productions on campus. She was lucky and survived. But other women who were assaulted were killed. The man was caught and convicted and died in prison.
