Reel Cowboys of the Santa Susanas -- Gary Cooper

Gary Cooper (1901 - 1961) was an American film star.  He was renowned for his quiet, understated acting style and his stoic, but at times intense screen persona, which was particularly well suited to Westerns (from Wikipedia). 

In 1945 he produced and starred in Along Came Jones (1945) for which he had the Iverson Western street constructed.

His career spanned from 1925 until shortly before his death in 1961, and comprised more than one hundred films.
