Two-time Academy Award winner—for "Sgt. York" and "High Noon"—Cooper is the son of a Montana Supreme Court Justice. He was educated in England and at Grinnell College in Iowa. One of the screen's most versatile actors, he has not only won fame as an outdoor hero, but also in white-tie-and-tails and period costume roles. (And in the famous No. 4 uniform of Lou Gehrig, in "Pride of the Yankees," as well.) Cooper is currently starring in "Man of the West", a Mirisch Company Production for United Artists release.
