Jackie Cooper

Happy Birthday to

Jackie Cooper

87 today

Former child star and still the most credible Perry White in Superman adaptations. And with no sign of the curse hitting him lets hope Jackie sees many more birthdays.

without checking: isn't he the youngest Best Actor nominee ever? for Skippy? I might be wrong, but that's what the name suggested.

If I'm right, I'm so cool on Oscar trivia :P

I'm pretty sure you are right. He was just 9 when he was given the nod.

Just 5 years later it would have been a Juvenile award, these days he'd probably be campaigned in supporting, so I expect it's a record that will always stand.
