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. Creased at margin edges and at corners. 2, ¼-inch creases at right blank background. Overall, fine condition.
