Your comment was "Cooper was way too old for Grace Kelly." Whether or not the character Grace was playing would have been married by age 22 is entirely beside the point. And anyway, are you saying she should have been playing younger? If she had been 17 that would have been better?

Back then it happened, here is some interesting info: https://mimimatthews.com/2016/04/10/the-perils-of-may-december-marriages/

Thanks, CJ. That article at least demonstrates that May-December matches were an issue for the time, not something cooked up later by Hollywood.

On Sunday, July 18th, at 1:30 p.m., Film Forum in New York will show High Noon


http://filmforum.org/events/event/high-noon-with-maria-cooper-janis-and-glenn-frankel-in-person-event

Following the film, there will be a Q&A with author Glenn Frankel, and Maria Cooper Janis, daughter of Gary Cooper, moderated by film historian Foster Hirsch. Frankel’s new book High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic ; and Gary Cooper: Enduring Style, by Maria Cooper Janis and G. Bruce Boyer, will be on sale at the theater, with a lobby book-signing to follow the event.


I assume CJ will show up and during the Q&A, he'll ask Foster Hirsch about film noir  >:D

Sounds good. I'm enjoying Frankel's book so far although haven't managed to read that much yet.

Do you live near New York?

About 4 hrs drive away. I wouldn't make the trip just for this.

A great read. So good, I'm now thinking of picking up a copy of Frankel's book on "The Searchers".

Pretty hilarious: the Academy Awards ceremony at which Gary Cooper was awarded Best Actor for High Noon
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mZyA49IOXVk


Yeah, that's John Wayne complaining that he didn't get the High Noon gig   ;D ;D ;D

Even more hilarious was the fact that Wayne, famously, had not exactly a high opinion about the movie. Here he explains, rather awkwardly, the why and wherefore:

John Wayne was always hating on westerns that I believe he wished he had acted in or didn't fit what he believed the west was about.   Besides High Noon, there is another good one he hated on. I can't remember right now which one it was but I started noticing the pattern with Wayne...   High Plains Drifter.  Wayne had the nerve to write Clint Eastwood a letter about it saying it wasn't what the west was about...

John Wayne wasn't above adapting the "gun in the bathtub trick" to a shower in "Big Jake" !!!
