There was a new book recently released about Gary by David Thomson called *Gary Cooper*. I just wanted to let everyone know not to waste your money on it. A friend of mine just got through reading it and she said it was very poorly written and the author actually used the ?f? word in describing some of his affairs which to me is very inappropriate and also just not very professional. It seems this book also follows the standard pattern I?ve found in most books about him; they compliment him in one sentence and insult him in the next. There are some pictures in it but she said they weren?t any new ones, just the same ones we?ve seen before so I?d save your money and time.

 

Also *The Devil and The Deep* dvd?s release date has been changed to February 1st.

I used my birthday money to get some neat Gary stuff at an antique store. I got hardback copies of Zane Grey's *Fighting Caravans* and *Nevada* that were reprints from the 60s and a 1901 silver dollar. Theresa also got me a lobby card from *Cloak and Dagger* and a Yugoslavian mag with Gary on the cover. She got me an awesome pic of Clara Bow too from the 30s that was one that Paramount would have sent out to fans when they requested pics. It's so cool!!!

*_One of the most wonderful oddities in all Depression-era cinema_ is this Lewis Carroll adaptation that served to unite a plethora of top stars and comic talents under contract at Paramount Pictures. The cast includes Cary Grant (The Mock Turtle), W.C. Fields (Humpty Dumpty), Gary Cooper (The White Knight), plus Charlie Ruggles, Alison Skipworth, Jack Oakie, Edward Everett Horton, and young Charlotte Henry as Alice. Plus, some surprise short subjects!*

I watched the Paramount version of Alice in Wonderland and enjoyed it quite a bit (and posted more extensively in the "Alice" thread in the Films and Filmmakers forum).

 

Coop really is kinda endearing as the White Knight, playing obviously a bit older than he was at the time, but generally managing to find the right whimsical tone that his scene required.

 

It's a great thing that the movie has now received an official DVD release, because I'm sure every Coop fan will want to add it to their collection. :D
