billst29Jun 8, 2011

what a man what a talent what a great heart more men need to be like him

Sandra HApr 11, 2011

No wonder he dated so many women. He was taurus, I mean, the man with two horns

anonJan 18, 2011

As of this date, I will no longer be voting daily for Sandra Shaw.

debbie60435Jan 2, 2011

Who didn`t Gary date? That would have been a much shorter list, LOL. He was so good-looking and charismatic he definitely should be shared by all. I certainly would have dated him.

LITTLE KOJAKJun 18, 2010

`Coop` was heard to say `yup` a lot. That made him the first `yuppie`....yup.

Daisy PresbyApr 26, 2010

I am sure that Mr Cooper was Very Much In Love with his wife Sandra Shaw. I think that his problem was, he could not resist temptation. You could almost call him the Tiger Woods of our day.

DarrellApr 18, 2010

Did Gary really love his wife Sandra Shaw? With all the women he was with during their marriage I have to wonder?

Francis BurkeAug 22, 2009

Gary Cooper grew to really dislike Patricia Neal, during their brief encounter. Patricia was so very demanding, and Gary was still Very much in love with Sandra. Pat Neal was just a Gold Digger.
