Happy Birthday: Gary Cooper!
Gary Cooper (May 7, 1901 – May 13, 1961). Was best known for his quiet, acting style and his intense screen persona, which was perfect for the many Westerns he made. His career spanned from 1925 until shortly before his death, he performed more than one hundred films.
Cooper received five Academy Award nominations for Best Actor, winning twice for Sergeant York and High Noon. He also received an Honorary Award in 1961 from the Academy.
