Child film star Jackie Cooper (1922-2011) appeared first in Hal Roach's "Our Gang" comedies, and then earned an Oscar nomination as Skippy (1931). He co-starred with Wallace Beery in several films of the 1930s, including The Champ and Treasure Island. As an adult, his film opportunities diminished, but Cooper had two hit TV series in the 1950s, The People's Choice and Hennessy. He won an Emmy (1973) for directing episodes of M*A*S*H. Cooper played newspaper editor Perry White in all four of the Christopher Reeves Superman movies (1981-1987). He also produced several TV programs, and formed Cooper-Finkel Associates with fellow producer Bob Finkel for that purpose. Ink notes (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
