Great Caesars Ghost – Jackie Cooper Passes Away

Passed away: Jackie Cooper as Daily Planet editor Perry White in the hit 1979 film Superman Jackie Cooper

Better know to older folks as an irrepressible child star, Jackie Cooper made dozens of films when he was a child, but also remembered by younger fans as Perry White, editor of the Daily Planet and Clark Kent’s boss in the 1970s and 1980s. He passed away 3 May, 2011 at age 88, starting his career in silent film and making a place for himself in film history.

To paraphrase Jackie Cooper in his role as Perry White, “a good actor doesn’t get great parts – a good actor makes them great”.
