Signature: "Gary Cooper" and "Harry Green" in pencil. 1 page, 6x4½. GARY COOPER's(1901-1961) acting career, which began with bit parts in 1925, was firmly established with his role in The Winning of Barbara Worth (1926). He steadily rose to superstar status with his screen persona of a strong, silent man of action and few words. Nominated for Academy Awards five times, Cooper won the 1942 Academy Award for Best Actor for the title role in Sergeant York, and he won the Best Actor Oscar in 1953 for the role of Marshal Will Kane in High Noon. He was also nominated for the role of Longfellow Deeds in Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Lou Gehrig in The Pride of the Yankees and Robert Jordan in For Whom the Bell Tolls. Cooper was awarded a Special Academy Award in 1961 "For his many memorable screen performances and the international recognition he, as an individual, has gained for the motion picture industry." Cooper was too ill to accept the Oscar in person and his close friend, a tearful Jimmy Stewart, accepted it in his name. A month later, Cooper died of cancer at the age of 60. American character actor HARRY GREEN (1892-1958) left legal practice for an acting career, appearing in his first film (Close Harmony, 1929). He filled supporting roles, often in action films, over the next three decades, before his final feature film role in Next to No Time (1958). He spent his later years on British TV, including a recurring role on Three Tough Guys (1957). From the album collection of child actor BILLY SEAY (1922-2012), who appeared in many films throughout the decade including The Greater Glory (1926), My Man (1928), and The Marriage Playground (1929). Seay would leave Hollywood in the early 1930s to become a noted artist and illustrator. Toned and slightly soiled. Light surface creases. Pencil notes in bottom margin. Binding holes in left margin.
