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)
What list are you referring to? I have read "Cooper's women" - interesting book, but how accurate is it? How reliable an author is she? I don't know, but to believe everything she read, that would mean Gary Cooper was superman! I mean, to do all that she mentions, acting, flirting, various love affairs at the same time, and still be on the set at 6am...he must have been a great magician....but I can believe all the women going for him....I mean, to be cuddle in those arms and hands of his, must have been a great feeling! I also read the American Hero by Jeffrey Myers. ....so some facts differ in both books, about dates and accuracy of events. I guess we will never know. I would tend to believe more the Myers book as Maria Cooper helped in the research.

ONE OF THE MEMBERS WAS ASKING ABOUT A BOOK LIST OR MENTIONING THEIR BOOK LIST. I NOTICED COOPERS WOMEN WAS NOT ON IT. AS FAR AS MARIA COOPER, IM SURE THERE WAS A LOT OF EMOTIONAL DAMAGE IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO COME OUT UNSCAVED AFTER THE SEPARATION AND HEARING ABOUT ALL THE AFFAIRS. WHAT I'M GETTING AT IS IN MY OPINION, MARIA WAS IN DENIAL ABOUT SOME OF HER FATHERS AFFAIRS.

A custom picture framer has likely framed thousands of prints and photographs and knows what mistakes to avoid. He or she will have an intimate knowledge of color, style, size, proportion and design that will help you decide on what frame is best for your home or office. This will give you confidence in knowing the job was done professionally.
ghruth: is there any way to resurrect the full text of the Saturday Evening Post stories about Coop's career? I used to be Iron Hero..now I'm GHRuth and finishing up the book on Pride of the Yankees. I seem to be missing the part about Pride of the Yankees

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?
