Cast your vote and boost your favorite player JACKIE COOPER: Sixteen years okl, and now nearly six feet tall, this young veteran is still a favorite after eleven years in pictures. Born in Los Angeles, Cal., September 15, 1922, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles .J. Bigelow, and nephew of the famous director Norman Taurog, Jackie entered pictures at the ripe old age of five. At eight he became a star in "Skippy," and the biggest hit of his entire career was with Wallace Beery in "The Champ." Jackie is now a student at Beverly Hills High School, when he isn't working. He has grown up to be poised, quiet almost to the point of shyness, and a very likable young fellow. Jackie loves swimming, football, dancing and driving. He also enjoys boxing and tennis. He is a swing enthusiast, and the proud owner of an elaborate set of traps and drums on which he delights to accompany phonograph records of leading swing orchestras. He does not, however, like to sing. He is very fond of dogs. But more than anything else Jackie Cooper loves to act. He guesses it's just "in his blood." and he hopes he can act for many years to come. He modestly avers he wouldn't make such a tine matinee idol, but he'd like to be a good character actor. If he couldn't be that he'd want to be a director or a movie photographer. Jackie has curly blonde hair and blue eyes. His next picture will be "That Certain Age" with Deanna Durbin. After that he will Make "Gangster's Boy" and "Streets of Xew York." Ton can address him in care of Monogram Studios, Hollywood, Cal. ERBOL FLYNN: Here is one actor who is as handsome, dashing and daring off screen as he is on. A direct descendant of Fletcher Christian, who led the famous mutiny on the Bounty, Errol Flynn was born in the north of old Ireland on June 20, 1000, His father was a professor of biology at Queen's University in Belfast, later at Cambridge. Errol was educated In Paris and London, and was an Olympic boxing contestant in 1928. He has traveled on every continent, speaks many language.';, including Chinese and several native South Sea dialects. He has fished for pearls in Tahiti and prospected for gold in New Guinea. He once owned and sailed a coast-wise schooner on an inter-island freight service, and he ended up in movies quite by accident. Errol was pearl-flshiug off Tahiti when an English movie compauy came upon him and offered him a role in "Mutiny cm the Bounty." He accepted and the experience so intrigued him that he decided to go on the stage and make a career of acting. It was while he was playing in London that an American motion jiicture executive saw him and signed him to a Hollywood contract. On the boat coming to America he met the fascinating Lili Damita whom he later married. Errol calls her Damita. and she calls him Flynn. His definite ambition now is to succeed in American movies, and by all indications he certainly is realizing his ambition. Errol Flynn's favorite outdoor diversion is sailing. He also swims, rides and plays tennis. He has ambitious literary tendencies too, has now written several books, plays, short stories and even verse. He is an avid editorial reader, and often writes "letters to the editor." Also an excellent cook. Errol sometimes treats his friends to delicious home-cooked meals. Errol Flynn doesn't like alarm clocks, spiders, or weddings (except his own), but he does like thunder storms, and the sound of wind and rain. He lives In a modest home. There is one room, his den, that no one else — not even his wife — is allowed to enter without permission. Errol is six feet two Inches tall, weighs one hundred eighty pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes. His last two pictures were "Robin Hood" and "Four's a Crowd." His next will be "The Sisters." You can reach him in care of Warner Bros. Studio, Burbank, Cal. HUNDREDS OF ADDRESSES FOR A STAMPED ENVELOPE! Want to know your favorite player's address?
