Jackie Cooper

Jackie Cooper, the Our Ganger with the most successful post-Roach career in show business, was born 9/15/22 (some sources say 1921).

Young even for Hollywood standards, he broke into show business at age 3, appearing as an extra along with his grandmother, who used to tote him along while looking for film work. Jackie appeared in only fifteen Our Gang films, but remains one of the best remembered. He left Roach to appear in "Skippy" for Paramount, after which his film career took off, gaining true film star status. As he grew older, parts became harder to find, and after serving in the Navy during World War II, he returned to acting, honing his skills in various features and stage productions. He became a star once again when he directed and starred in the successful television sitcom "The People's Choice" where he played a city councilman and followed that with other TV successes such as "Hennesey" and "Mobile One." Many recognize him recently for his roles as editor Perry White in the "Superman" series of films.
