GARY COOPER DOUBLE FEATURE

MUBI Special

The Westerner

William Wyler United States, 1940

Picture Gary Cooper and you almost certainly are picturing him in the West. His aw-shucks, forthright star image is perfect for America’s legend of the West conquered and inhabited by decency. His presence and William Wyler’s elegant style elevate the Western from B film to prestige epic.

The Real Glory

Henry Hathaway United States, 1939

This week a double feature dedicated to the most stoic of Hollywood’s handsome icons: Gary Cooper. Film after film, his task often represents the best side of American values, folksy, steadfast and moral. Which is why seeing him here fight against radical Muslims in an American colony is shocking!
