    Acted in 'Wings,' 'Mr. Deeds Goes to Town,' 'The Cowboy and the Lady,' 'For Whom the Bell Tolls,' 'The Pride of the Yankees,' 'Friendly Persuasion.'
    He was right-handed, so when he starred in 'The Pride of the Yankees,' he had to have the lettering on his uniform printed backward and then have the film reversed so that he could play the left-handed Lou Gehrig.
    He had a five year affair with Patricia Neal, but he refused to marry her because he was already married to a Catholic who he refused to ask to divorce him.
    Many of his leading ladies were much younger than him.
    He had a face-lift.
    He wore a toupee.
    He was a cowboy star who had actually worked on a ranch.
    His father was a Supreme Court Justice.
    He frequently performed Lou Gehrig's farewell speech to the troops during World War II.
    When he won a special Academy Award for lifetime achievement, James Stewart accepted it for him and broke down crying because Cooper was dying of cancer.
