Gary Cooper was by any means Hollywood’s most unusual star. Unlike many who were caught up in the lights and brouhaha of the film industry, Cooper remained down to earth and an all around nice guy. Whomever he played -- soldier, cowboy, adventurer, lounge lizard, lover -- Gary Cooper became that character. Whether he was striding down the streets of Hadleyville as Marshal Will Kane in High Noon – undoubtedly his most celebrated film; romping over the Tennessee Hills as Alvin York in Sergeant York; or facing down the city slickers as Longfellow Deeds in Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Gary Cooper embodied the all American male and the best that was America. For 35 years and 92 films, Gary Cooper was America's Everyman.

 

Humphrey Bogart is the epitome of the classic Hollywood star. His unforgettable swagger and ever-cool style led him to adopt beloved characters as Sam Spade, Philip Marlow, and of course, Casablanca’s Rick Blaine. “Bogey” shared the silver screen with many luminaries including his wife, Lauren Bacall, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet, Ingrid Bergman, and Katharine Hepburn. His visage will remain timeless due in part to his 70+ films, classics including: To Have and Have Not, The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, The African Queen, Key Largo, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Sabrina, and more.

Actress Celeste Holm debuted on the stage in 1936. She has received many honors in her lifetime: the 1968 Sarah Siddons Award for distinguished achievement in Chicago theatre, she was appointed to the National Arts Council by then-President Ronald Reagan, knighted by King Olav of Norway, and inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 1992. She remains active for social causes as a spokesperson for UNICEF, and for occasional professional engagements. In April 2006, Holm was presented with one of the first two Lifetime Achievement Awards ever awarded by the SunDeis Film Festival at Brandeis University.
