For the fifteenth in a series of Hollywood Legend stamps, the U.S. Postal Service chose to honor Gary Cooper, and I was privileged to host the first day of issue ceremony held, appropriately enough, at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles. Cooper didn’t just make Westerns, of course, but I reckon if you asked most people to instantly name one Gary Cooper movie the answer you’d get most often would be High Noon. The actor’s charming daughter, Maria Cooper Janis, was the morning’s guest of honor. She has kept her father’s memory alive in many ways; she compiled a lovely picture-and-text book, Gary Cooper Off-Camera: A Daughter Remembers, in 1999, and narrated a warm profile of him that airs periodically on Turner Classic Movies. She is currently working on a feature-length...

Trucker is an emblematic American indie film. It offers a juicy leading role to an actress who usually works in mainstream Hollywood fare, and completely fulfills its modest ambitions. Writer-director James Mottern has crafted a vivid, credible character study of a young woman whose fierce independent streak has led her to a career that allows her to live life on her own terms as a truck driver, while steering her away from long-term relationships.

Celebrating Telluride

Even a rank amateur like me can take good pictures in Telluride. The setting is beautiful and famous people are relaxed and don’t mind being photographed. On Friday morning of Labor Day Weekend there is a brunch for festival patrons and special guests which I’m privileged to attend; that’s when I start snapping away, and you never know whom you’ll capture in the same frame. This first photo has special significance because when Laura Linney first came to Telluride with Kinsey in 2004 she fell in love with longtime festival staffer Marc Schauer—and earlier this year they were married. Linney travels the globe for her work, but has become a welcome fixture at the Festival, and Schauer continues to help shuttle guests in and out of the Rocky Mountain town with unfailing good cheer.___________________________
