Cover Art Description:
A native Montanan, born in Helena in 1901, Gary Cooper became a much-loved star of the American screen. In the front cover painting, Norman Rockwell's Saturday Evening Post cover illustration of Gary Cooper as The Texan, Cooper stoically receives the ministrations of the make-up man amid the scattered tools of his movie trade (Copyright 1930 SEPS, licensed by Curtis Publishing Co., Indianapolis, Indiana, all rights reserved). With his hat, spurs, chaps, and saddle, Cooper as the Texan typified the western cowboy.
