Gary Cooper - The Signature Collection

( 1 )

Overview

Overview

With Dallas, Gary Cooper revived his long-dormant association with westerns. Cooper plays ex-Confederate officer Blayde Hollister, who rides into Dallas in search of the men who killed his family and stole his land. Because he is considered to be an outlaw by the authorities, Hollister is compelled to switch identities with U.S. marshal Martin Wetherby Leif Erickson. This ruse requires Hollister to explain his plan to Wetherby's lady friend, Tonia Robles Ruth Roman. One by one, Hollister gets rid of the men responsible for the murders of his loved ones. The most formidable of his enemies, Will Marlow Raymond Massey, proves to be a bit too clever to fall into Hollister's trap...at least until Marlow shows his hand in the final scene. There's more talk than action in Dallas, but Gary Cooper's laconic performance holds the audience's interest throughout.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The phrase “strong, silent type” was coined to describe Gary Cooper, a lanky, taciturn leading man who enlivened westerns, dramas, and comedies of all stripes during a shining 30-plus-year career. This five-disc collection presents a quintet of films, all but one of them from his last decade as a screen star. The exception, Sergeant York (1941), won Coop an Oscar for his portrayal of the real-life Tennessee backwoodsman who, although a pacifist, proved himself a hero during the First World War. Directed by Howard Hawks with a minimum of Hollywood hokum, York boosted Cooper’s stock considerably and remains a compulsively watchable film. The Fountainhead (1949) finds Cooper tackling a difficult role, that of an idealistic, uncompromising architect, in King Vidor’s ambitious, highly stylized adaptation of Ayn Rand’s philosophic novel. In the more conventional Dallas (1950), the laconic actor plays a Civil War veteran who journeys to Texas on a mission of revenge. Another western distinguished by the star’s presence, Springfield Rifle (1952) revolves around a lawman who poses as an outlaw to infiltrate a band of thieves. The Wreck of the Mary Deare (1959) is an all-star spectacular that found Cooper taking top billing over Charlton Heston and Michael Redgrave. The film casts him against type as the skipper of a sunken ship trying to clear himself of charges of negligence. By emphasizing a variety of Cooper roles, The Signature Collection gives lie to any lingering preconceptions tarring the actor with a one-dimensional screen persona. Add “expressive” to “strong” and “silent,” and you have a sharper picture of this legendary movie star’s enduring presence.
