Paulette Goddard and Gary Cooper: Unconquered
A movie you don’t hear nearly enough about and an actor and actress I don’t talk nearly enough about are Unconquered and its stars Gary Cooper and Paulette Goddard! I recently saw a Gary Cooper movie and two Paulette Goddard movies and, each time, asked myself why I didn’t talk more about them.
I had no answer then and I have no answer now!
I love these two in everything I’ve ever seen them in – I guess they’re two I just take for granted. Well.. no more! You have my vow, whether it’s here on the blog, in person, or on my Old Hollywood Twitter, you’ll hear a lot more from me about these two great talents.
May as well start someplace, right? So here they are as today’s picture of the day.
These are from the 1947 film Unconquered, directed by the wonderful Cecil B. DeMille. Gary Cooper and Paulette Goddard are outstanding in this underrated film – as are Howard Da Silva, Ward Bond, and Boris Karloff.
You can find Unconquered (link to the dvd) on Amazon. I don’t believe it’s on Prime Video.
