Gary Cooper Movie Favorites

Gary Cooper's career began in silent movies in the 1920's. The 1930's brought him stardom. One of his early hits was A Farewell to Arms Ernest Hemingway's classic love story between the nurse and the ambulance driver circa World War I. ( Trivia question who played Gary Cooper's role in the two remakes of this film? William Holden and Rock Hudson)

Frank Capra directed it. Gary Cooper plays Longfellow Deed, a tuba playing country bumpkin who inherits a fortune. It's a timeless fable. Mr. Deeds Goes to Town.

In the days of Joe the Plumber will a movie about a mythical everyman, Meet John Doe, still resonate?. You betcha. Now more than ever.

The real Alvin York, World War I hero would only allow this movie to made if his part was played by Gary Cooper. The real Sergeant York was right. Gary Cooper's performance won him an Academy Award for Best Actor.

The Pride of the Yankees was a moving tribute to baseball great Lou Gehrig. You will surely be moved when Gary Cooper begins the farewell speech of the dying hero. "Today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth"

Ernest Hemingway told his friend Gary Cooper he wrote the role of Robert Jordan for him. Coop and Ingrid Bergman were a memorable romantic screen couple in For Whom the Bell Tolls.

Ayn Rand wrote the screenplay adaptation of her novel The Fountainhead. Everyone seemed to like the book better than the movie but it is one of Gary Cooper's iconic roles.

Word Association quiz. Western? Answer: High Noon. Try it on someone. Gary Cooper's portrayal of Sheriff Will Kane became a part of movie history.

Friendly Persuasion was one of Gary Cooper's last movies and finest roles. It's a beautiful story about a Quaker family's struggles during the Civil War.

For Whom the Bell Tolls

Professor Bertram Potts ( Ball of Fire ):

"No mistake. I shall regret the absence of your keen mind. Unfortunately it is inseparable from an extremely disturbing body."

The Pride of the Yankees was about the life of which baseball legend?
