Biography | show moreshow less
Jackie Cooper, born John Cooper, Jr. in Los Angeles, California (1922-2011), appeared first in Hal Roach's "Our Gang" comedies, then earned an Oscar nomination as Skippy (1931). He co-starred with Wallace Beery in several films of the 1930s, including The Champ and Treasure Island. As an adult, his film opportunities diminished, but Cooper had two hit TV series in the 1950s, The People's Choice and Hennessy. He won an Emmy (1973) for directing episodes of M*A*S*H. Cooper played newspaper editor Perry White in all four of the Christopher Reeves Superman movies (1981-1987). American director TAUROG (1899-1981, born in Chicago, Illinois) won the 1931 Best Director Academy Award for Skippy (1931), which featured his nine year-old nephew and up-and-coming child star Jackie Cooper. (Taurog reportedly threatened to shoot Cooper's dog during the filming of Skippy to make him cry; Cooper later called his autobiography Please Don't Shoot My Dog) He was also nominated for Best Director honors for Boys Town (1938). In all, he directed almost 180 films between 1920 and 1968. Among them were nine films featuring Elvis Presley and five with Jerry Lewis, both in partnership with Dean Martin and alone and David O. Selznick's adaptation of the Samuel Clemens novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938).
