The Films of Gary Cooper

Rick Harris' Hooray for Hollywood
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

Rick Harris, lecturer

A tall, laconic everyman, Gary Cooper thrilled audiences with his all-American good looks in every kind of film: romance, adventure, comedy, and western. Whether in High Noon, Friendly Persuasion, A Farewell to Arms, Lives of a Bengal Lancer or as Sergeant York, Lou Gehrig, Mr. Deeds or John Doe, Gary Cooper was the prototypical American star.
