The world lost Gary Cooper on this day in 1961 and we remember him with a Follies tribute…
“Until I came along all the leading men were handsome, but luckily they wrote a lot of stories about the fellow next door.”
I’ve never lived next door to anyone who looked like Coop!
If you like these images you might want to see Gary Cooper in action in his early films at this year’s Capitolfest, which runs from August 12th through the 14th in Rome, NY. Cooper is the featured star for the entire weekend! I’ll be sharing a lot more about the festival on this blog before August comes around, but there’s still time for you to buy tickets and make lodging arrangements. Trust me, don’t miss this if you can help it.
