Cooper & Hemingway: The True Gen chronicles the 20 year relationship between author Earnest Hemingway and screen icon Gary Cooper
Cooper & Hemingway: The True Gen not only profiles the lives of two of the greatest American icons of the 20th Century, but it also unfolds against the backdrop of world events and American history.
The narrative is skillfully driven by interviews interspersed with with never before seen home films and archival photographs. Perhaps most interesting is the documentary's analysis of the parallel success of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea and Cooper's High Noon in 1951. Who knew Hemingway's suicide followed Cooper's death from cancer a mere seven week apart.
Makes the viewer wonder how the loss of his best friend added to Hemingway's terrible depression.
