    Coop

    Hi Laffite! I didn't start that old Coop thread but I was very active on it along with a few others. It was a lot of fun! I started my own Gary site in 2009 (then last year I upgraded it) and that has kept me busy so I haven't posted as much here but this is a great community. About They Came to Cordura, it was edited to Heck and back and that apparently did a lot of damage to the story. I like the message of that one though that one cowardly act does not necessarily make you a coward forever and one heroic act doesn't mean your always a hero. The part that bothers me though is near the end where Gary is dragged along the tracks because for most of that (if not all, I forget) it was actually him. Audiences also did not like to see Gary mistreated as he was usually the hero and I can imagine that parts of this film (like the part I just described) didn't sit well with fans. In hindsight you can see it's a pretty good film and Gary and Rita Hayworth give good performances.

    Coop

    Hey Fellow Coop fans! I used to post here regularly until I started my own Gary site in 2009 and that took a lot of my time. Last Fall I set up a completely new site and it's chock full of Gary pics, articles, audio files, etc... http://www.garycoopercollection.com/ The Hanging Tree is definitely a great film. Gary's costar Maria Schell later said Gary was her favorite Hollywood star she worked with and she loved his calm demeanor and how he always seem to be in control and it made her feel calm and centered as well.

    It was Jane Morgan who sang Fascination and it was a pretty big hit when it was released after the film came out. It's been quite while since I've been around on the boards and I'm glad to see this thread is still going strong.

    The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

    Hi Wendy! My holiday season is going well. I'm nearly done with my Christmas shopping. I usually pick a couple of the Salvation Army angel kids and get them toys and clothes and I've got to finish that up this weekend. It's so much fun shopping for toys and the only time I get to do it as there aren't any little kids in my family right now. I probably get a bigger kick out of picking out the toys than they do playing with them . Gary's first scene in *Meet John Doe* (the pic is from that scene) is what made me go crazy for him so I definitely agree that he's incredibly sexy there!!

    The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

    It looks as if Frank has fallen on hard times. Personally I think he's faking it just so Babs will take pity on him and throw a little sugar his way. I'm sorry it's been so long since I've been around. I do hope everyone is doing well and hopefully not in as bad a shape as poor John Doe up there. I'm still plugging along in school (should be done in fall 2012) and I'll be Dr. Coopsgirl . I'm gonna make Frank call me that too! Is everybody ready for Christmas?

    Thanks April, that was a lovely compliment! I'm excited to see your video. Is it a Gary one or just a bunch of different actors? I'm sure it will be good.

    Meet John Doe is my fave of the two b/c that's the film that got me hooked on Gary.

    Yeah, I noticed they have some other films listed that I have bought from Movies Unlimited and City Streets isn't listed on the Universal Collections page so it probably is the same old copy that's making the rounds.

    Wow! How did I miss this? There's no info about it at my usual places (HTF, Nitrateville, Classic Flix). This one must have flown under the radar. I'll definitely have to pick it up, thanks for letting us know.
