Grey and Cooper
One of my favourite western actors was Gary Cooper (born Frank James Cooper; 1901 – 1961) who wanted to be an editorial cartoonist, but thankfully, failed in that goal of his. He choose to pursue an acting career. Cooper together with my favourite western writer, ex dentist Pearl Zane Grey (1872 –1939), joined forces in a way, to put one of the Grey's novels on the silver screen in 1931. The western movie was"Fighting caravans". This film costarred Lily Damita. It is still a well produced and amusing old movie.
