Gary Cooper was often cast as cowboys, such as in 1940’s “The Westerner” and in his Oscar-winning turn in 1952’s High Noon,” or as stoic, earnest protagonists, such as a World War I hero in 1941’s “Sergeant York.” But in real life, he was an erudite sophisticate who had an innate sense of style. The new book “Gary Cooper: Enduring Style” features stunning photographs of Cooper from the mid-1920s through 1960 in everything from fashionable suits to only a zebra-skinned throw. The book includes a foreword by Ralph Lauren, who describes Coop as having an “ideal American look.” Cooper’s only child, Maria Cooper Janis, provided the afterword, and G. Bruce Boyer supplied the text.
