Cover: Gary Cooper is pictured while making the film, "The Westerner"
At Golden, Arizona, a one salon town put together especially for this movie.
Cooper's grin began some 30 odd years ago in Helena, Montana.
Broadened when he went to school in England, survived a dark period
when he tried to be a cartoonist. He ability to drawl such words as" Well"
and "Yes" and instill in them dry humor has enabled him to make more
than 30 movies, of which "The Westerner" is on of the best.
See pages 73 to 77 for a review of the movie.
