Seven Days Leave (1930) law and order drama added 4 Sep 09
    starring Gary Cooper, Beryl Mercer
    based on James M Barrie's "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals"
A childless cleaning lady Beryl Mercer, during WWI, creates a fictional son, so she can also say that her son is at the front, and brags about him to her friends.  The jig is up, when the local rector accidentally meets a soldier Gary Cooper with the name surname and decides he must be her son. When Gary and Beryl meet, at first he is incensed, but then cools down, and they become friends.  He finally agrees to maintain the charade, as he has no one else to watch out after him anyway.
A scratchy cut of this movie.  You know some of Gary's acting here is pretty, how shall we say... bad.  His fault? Or the bad direction and production.  Sort of a disappointment.  See below for a much better Cooper movie.  Beryl steals this one.  She is perfect as his fantasy mother.

His Woman (1931), romance starring Gary Cooper and Claudette Colbert
Gary is the captain of a ship, who finds an abandoned baby.  Claudette is his sometime love interest, who falls for him and the baby.  He discovers that she is a somewhat fallen woman and spurns her.  Not one of Gary's best films, and the overall morality is dated and odd to today's viewers.  Almost misogynistic. Gary seems a bit more-than-normally wooden.  Overall a bit melodramatic.
    Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8 (complete)

A Farewell to Arms (1932) law and order romance added 2 Sep 09
    starring Helen Hayes, Gary Cooper, Adolphe Menjou
    from the novel by Ernest Hemingway
Set in Italy during WWI.  Gary Cooper is an ambulance driver, Helen Hayes is a nurse.  They fall in love, but Gary is sent away to the front.  While he is away Helen is transferred to Milan to keep them apart.  Cooper is badly injured by a bomb blast, but his friend shows up to make sure he gets transferred to the hospital in Milan as well.  After one final barrier intervenes to keep them apart, Cooper goes AWOL and searches the countryside to find his lost love again.
    Trivia: Gary Cooper... shirtless.

Meet John Doe (1941) tear-jerker romance drama added 3 Sep 09
    directed by Frank Capra; starring Gary Cooper, Barbara Stanwyck, Edward Arnold, Walter Brennan
    Spring Byington, James Gleason, Gene Lockhart
    uploaded 10 months ago
Barbara Stanwyck and Gary Cooper
in "Meet John Doe" (1941)
When new owners buy the newspaper, reporter Barbara Stanwyck gets the axe because her column has no "fireworks".  She decides her last column is going to be a real zinger,  so she fakes a suicide note from "John Doe", who plans to jump off city hall to protest the lack of jobs.  The mayor's wife gets incensed and insists he contact John Doe and offer him a job, or else!  The newspaper owner now has to track down Barbara who informs him that she made it all up.  Cornered, they have to find a "John Doe" who can play the role, keeping circulation up with his life story, and also preventing their competitor paper from declaring them a fraud.  Gary Cooper, unemployed and homeless fits the bill.
    A truly great movie with a simple but interesting message, and great performances.  Five stars.
