~Gary Cooper~

Born: May 7, 1901 in Helena, Montana, USA
Died: May 13, 1961 in Beverly Hills, California, USA
Gary Cooper, considered one of Hollywood's homespun heroes, was another product of its big star
era — the same era in which names like Clark Gable, John Wayne, Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power
became household words to millions.

In a career that spanned 35 years, he won two Academy Awards and made 75 major pictures. His
most memorable roles were as "Sergeant York" in 1941 and as the frontier marshal in "High Noon" in
1952. He won an Oscar for each. He was also nominated for his performances in "Mr. Deeds Goes to
Town" (1936), "Pride of the Yankees" (1942) and "For Whom the Bell Tolls" (1943).

Cooper brought to the screen a personality that was all his own. His taciturn drawl, shy grin and the
loose-jointed way he carried his 6-foot, 3-inch frame came to typify something as American as
buckwheat cakes.

Moreover he was Hollywood's own creation. He came here almost directly from a ranch near Helena,
Mont., his birthplace, rather than by way of the stage, radio or other entertainment.

Acting earned Cooper $10 million over the course of his career, and in 1939 he was the highest-paid
American wage earner at $482,819. He was also considered one of the most popular actors among his
Hollywood peers and contemporaries.
