  whiteshark: High Noon Intro:
Jan-22-11  BobCrisp: <[On working with Gary Cooper in The General Died at Dawn (1936)] For three days I acted rings around him. I've got him stopped. Against my acting he can do nothing. So I look at the rushes. On the screen I am there. Everybody else is there. But what do I see? Nothing! Nothing, that is, except Gary Cooper. He isn't doing anything at all, but he's taking the scenes away from me.>

  MissScarlett: <Coop was a lovely guy. His sense of humor was kind of within. He'd do something he knew was funny. He laughed inwardly. It was a delight! He'd say things, then chuckle within himself. He was wonderful, low-key, like Fred Astaire, an absolute gentleman. These are quality, quality people. They have their own atmosphere about them. Coop's was very laid-back and easy.>

  MissScarlett: <One of my favorite stories.

Director Marion Gering, while working on a scene with Cooper and Tallulah Bankhead, once yelled at him, "Mr. Cooper, will you now begin to act?" Charles Laughton roared back, "He is acting, you idiot. Only you don't see it. The camera does.">

  MissScarlett: <Cooper's ability to project his personality onto his characters played an important part in his appearing natural and authentic on screen. Actor John Barrymore said of Cooper, "This fellow is the world's greatest actor. He does without effort what the rest of us spend our lives trying to learn?namely, to be natural." Charles Laughton, who played opposite Cooper in Devil and the Deep agreed, "In truth, that boy hasn't the least idea how well he acts ... He gets at it from the inside, from his own clear way of looking at life." William Wyler, who directed Cooper in two films, called him a "superb actor, a master of movie acting".>

  saffuna: The relatives of aviator Billy Mitchell told Cooper that Mitchell was a fast, nervous talker, that Cooper was playing him wrong as slow-talking and thoughtful.

Cooper replied, "I'm not playing Mitchell, I'm playing Gary Cooper."
