Gary Cooper’s Biography
Gary Cooper was born in Helena, Montana, the son of British immigrants. Cooper lived in England with his mother, Alice Brazier (1873-1967), a woman originally from Kent, until 1914 when, at the age of thirteen, he was injured in the back in a car accident, and then returned to live in Montana with his father Charles Henry Cooper (1865-1946), a brilliant lawyer in Birmingham, at the ranch where he learned to ride to recover from the aftermath of the accident. During this period he became a friend of the young Myrna Loy (then a young girl), who lived near him.
As he would have reported years later in an interview with journalist Hedda Hopper, the famous Hollywood columnist, Cooper’s true vocation was not cinema, but the profession of designer: “I became an actor just to make ends meet, after failing as a cartoonist and political caricaturist. This was in fact my true and unique youth vocation ».
In 1924 he moved to Los Angeles with the intention of becoming an art dealer, but the attempt was not very successful. Just three months later he started working in the film industry as an appearance and, the following year, he had the chance to face his first real role as an actor in a short film with Eileen Sedgewick as a protagonist. When the film was released, Cooper was contacted by Paramount who offered him a long-term contract. The actor accepted and, on the advice of his agent Nan Collins, changed his name to Frank James in Gary, named after the city of the same name in the State of Indiana, which had to evoke the “hard and pure” style of the place.
Coop, as his colleagues called him, began a career that would have led him to participate in more than 100 films. In 1936 he starred in the comedy It’s Happiness by Frank Capra, which earned him the first Oscar nomination for Best Actor. The early forties were the most successful period for the actor, who in 1942 won his first Academy Award for Best Actor in the War Sergeant York (1941). In the following two years he received two more nominations for Best Actor for the film The Idol of the crowds (1942), biography of the baseball player Lou Gehrig, and For those who play the bell (1943), from the homonymous novel by Ernest Hemingway, but in both cases he could not bring the statue home.
