Wonderful Tunes Provided By Friends. Wild Tangents Provided By Me.

RIP Jackie Cooper

Jackie Cooper passed away on May 3, 2011. He was 88 years old. Mr. Cooper was 9 when he became the youngest actor ever to be nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Actor category. He was also one of the rare actors to successfully make the transition from child star to adult actor. Jackie was also a talented director and producer and, apparently, he dabbled a bit in music too. He even released a single back in 1958. Here is a clip of Jackie playing drums on the Buick-Berle show. This episode originally aired in October of 1953. That’s Dagmar dancing and singing “Didn’t It Rain.”

Thank you sir for so many years of top quality entertainment. RIP Mr. Cooper.
