Welcome to the Gary Cooper Scrapbook. Here you will find pictures, articles, movie ads, and other ephemera about one of the most talented, respected, and well loved actors of Hollywood's Golden Era.“The world of today is a far cry from the world in which Gary Cooper lived until his untimely death in 1961. The distinction between “celebrity” and “star” was also quite different. But neither of those words was in the foreground of my father’s image of himself. He always felt he was your average “Joe American.” In his film roles, he tried to portray the best an American man could be…He taught me a little Western expression when I was very young. “There ain’t never a horse that couldn’t be rode, there ain’t never a rider that couldn’t be throwed.” In some way, that informed his own way of moving through what was truly an extraordinary life.” – Daughter, Maria Cooper Janis, 2011
