   Frank James (Gary) Cooper (May 7, 1901 – May 13, 1961) 

Cooper’s career spanned from 1925 until shortly before his death in
1961, with more than one hundred films to his credit. He received five
 
Academy Award nominations for Best Actor, winning twice for Sergeant

made the AFI’s 100 Years…
100 Heroes and Villains list, all of them
