#4421S- 44¢ Gary Cooper: Mint - sheet of 20

Beginning his film career with silent films, Gary Cooper (1901-1961) starred in 84 films from 1925 to 1961. Known for his understated, natural acting style, his screen persona represented the ideal American hero. He began his career as a stuntman and extra, but soon landed acting roles often in westerns and later expanded to dramas, comedies and adventure films. Cooper once said "You find out what people expect of your type of character and then you give them what they want. That way, an actor never seems unnatural or affected no matter what role he plays." He received numerous awards including Academy Awards for his roles in "Sergeant York" and "High Noon". US #4421 sheet of 20
