Gary Cooper was renowned for his quiet, understated acting style as well as his intense screen persona. His was also known for receiving five Academy Award nominations for Best Actor, winning three of them. During his heyday, Mr Cooper’s reputation as a snappy dresser was such that he was name checked in Mr Irving Berlin’s 1930 song “Puttin’ on the Ritz”. His appeal lay not just in his enviable machismo, but in how he dressed appropriately for every occasion, from hunting with his good friend Ernest Hemingway to lounging on a yacht. It’s not a surprise that he attracted the best dressed ladies such as Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich and Patricia Neal.
