The 27 Year Old Gary Cooper
3 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Cooper falls in love with a girl before being shipped overseas to war. He had only seven lines in the film because it was released as a talkie for commercial reasons. It was the age when silent films were gradually being phased out and replaced by sound pictures.
