Welcome to the Gary Cooper Scrapbook Message Board. Here you can talk about Gary's films and his life."Strong, clean-limbed, and tall; lean as the wild horses he had broken in his boyhood, Gary arrived. And health and wholesomeness came with him. Like a living flame he purged those about him. His pictures reveal his influence. For, no matter how he is cast—cowboy or cavalier, drunkard or wastrel, there can be no taint of decadence in his work. Something wholly alive, and hence pure and clean, shows through the fogs of his acting. No, Gary Cooper, hero or villain, always keeps us enthralled by virtue of that dynamic force within him.” – Fan letter to magazine by Eva Pratt (1932)

“It’s literally true, as Shakespeare said--all the world’s a stage. It wasn’t that way when I first got into the movies in 1924, but it is now. That’s why I find Hollywood newer and more exciting every day. Whatever you hear it’s still a place where a kid from Montana can jump on a horse, ride that-a-way, and keep right on going.” – Gary Cooper, 1956

matterbooboo: I have been told by my mother that I am a distant relation to Gary Cooper. My grandfather was called William Cooper, and he lived in Luton, Bedfordshire. I am trying to establish if there is a family link. Can anyone help?

Coopsgirl: Ironhero, I do not have the rights to any of the pictures on this site. I just find them and repost them. Good luck with your book!

ironhero: Hey Coopsgirl...I'm working on a book about "pride of the Yankees," and wondering about the photos on this site...they're incredible! Can you advise me on which ones may be public domain and which you had to license?
