Maria Cooper Janis has written a wonderful book that details a charmed life growing up delightfully spoiled as Gary Cooper's daughter. Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney, Dinah Shore and Bing Crosby were some of the few that gathered around her family's piano for evening jam sessions. And did you know Gary Cooper was a hands-on automobile enthusiast that knew his way around cars, maintained his own vehicles, and did so meticulously? Or that Chrysler built him a custom "Coop-mobile?"
