1901 – 1961
Here’s Anthony Mann pointing a gun at Gary Cooper as Royal Dano looks on. They’re hard at work on Man Of The West (1958). This disturbing, incredible film may be the Blue Velvet of 50s Westerns.
Coop was born on this day in 1901. He passed away way too soon, but not before he’d established himself as one of the greatest film actors of all time.
