Actor Gary Cooper was a cartoonist?

I enjoy reading the Stripper’s Guide – a blog focused on comic strip history maintained by historian Allan Holtz. One of his latests posts is regarding cartoonists that made the headlines (of the 1930’s). One such tidbit from these archives is the mention that Gary Cooper (who won an Oscar in 1952 for his role in “High Noon”) was a cartoonist at first.

Who woulda known.

Would be cartoonist is closer, he came to LA in hopes of landing a job as an editorial cartoonist. Finally in order not to starve he took a job as a stunt rider in the movies while he looked for a cartooning gig. Such is the fickle finger…
