Oh yes, Gary Cooper could act!
5 February 2006 | by (So.CA) – See all my reviews

No I have not seen this particular film but have seen just about everything else Gary Cooper made. Anyone who could possibly say that the man was not a great actor, is someone who: 1. obviously is not a movie-lover. 2. has not seen such great films as "High Noon" or "Meet John Doe" or "Pride of the Yankees" etc, etc. 3. is someone who doesn't have enough intelligence to realize that the greatest actors on screen were the ones who were just being themselves (ie James Stewart, John Wayne etc, etc.) 4. definitely needs to broaden his horizons. Believe me, there are several more great actors in film history other than those with "Sir" or "Lord" before their names. Should the fellow who wrote the previous comment continue to critique? Nope. Was Gary Cooper among the finest actors in film history? Yep.
