It was The Searchers and I was wrong about cutting out the Indian's eyes - he shot them out.

I think he was a whacky right winger. When I first read this post I read Gary Coleman

I don't know what his politics were, but he was the perennial good guy in westerns and was probably the most famous cowboy actor. This was his movie persona:

Quote:
Let’s talk straight: there was no cowboy handsomer than Gary Cooper. John Wayne had the sneer, and Gene Autry had the voice, but no one smoldered quite like Cooper. In his early films, he was glamour on a horse: his eyes lined, his face powdered, yet somehow right at home in the saddle — in part because unlike so many city-boys-turned-screen-cowboys, he grew up in Montana, one of the last veritable frontiers of the early 20th century. Over his 30 years in Hollywood, he would play variations on the cowboy — the cowboy goes to war, the cowboy goes to the city — but in each turn, he not only won the girl but did so righteously. Unlike other major stars, who allowed for and even reveled in the opportunity to play against type, Cooper kept things simple. He played slight variations on the same character, but their moral center remained constant: as he once told a screenwriter attempting to fine-tune his character, “just make me the hero.”
The actual Gary Cooper was quite different, but back in those days, you didn't have the entertainment reporters trying to scandalize everyone. They perpetuated the persona. Here is the true Gary Cooper:

Quote:
Cooper became a hero to many, even as he developed a reputation as one of the most notorious philanderers in Hollywood. He had stiff competition — Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, the list goes on — but Cooper may or may not have slept with EVERY. SINGLE. CO-STAR. No matter his age, no matter their age, he was insatiable, before and during his marriage. How to reconcile his moral righteousness onscreen with his philandering offscreen? That was the work of Fixers, gossip magazines, and the studio system at large, which ensured that Cooper was never caught, never denounced, and held up as a paragon of American values. Of course, the way he looked in pants didn’t hurt.
Sorry. Couldn't get the link to work. Copied from "The Hairpin" - Scandals of Classic Hollywood: That Divine Gary Cooper

Thanks. Hey, did you notice that last quote said "stiff" competition?
