On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: That Divine Gary Cooper

Huzzah and hooray for Hairpin's Hollywood! Awesome article; loved your asides. Saw Patricia Neal in person at a Coop centenary in NYC in '01. In describing the hopelessness of their relationship she said, "The heart wants what the heart wants." Way to turn a tired cliche into a tear-jerker. Well, I cried anyway. You left out one co-star that Coop didn't sleep with (ooooh, at least I hope not!): Shirley Temple. I love the ridiculous disparity in their heights as they stand side by side in NOW AND FOREVER. OMG -- unbelievably cute ... honor bright!
