God Speed Jackie Cooper

Jackie Cooper (1922-2011)

I've always really enjoyed the Jackie Cooper short for MGM called The Christmas Party. It was a great way to showcase the MGM stars of 1931 but it also exemplified Jackie Cooper's lovely auw shucks demeanor and his appeal to both children as well as adults. How could you not be won over by those big cheeks? God Speed Jackie Cooper.


  1. Jackie was one of the sweetest child actors on screen, and so incredibly talented. God bless him. I didn't know he had died. Thanks for the tribute!

  2. Jackie was so great a child actor and as an adult. He was proof that child actors can and do make it into acting as adults.


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
