Jackie Cooper (September 15, 1922 – May 3, 2011), was an American actor, television director, producer and executive. He was a child actor who managed to make the transition to an adult career. Cooper was the first child actor to receive an Academy Award nomination. At age 9, he was also the youngest performer to have been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role—an honor that he received for the film Skippy (1931). For nearly 50 years, Cooper remained the youngest Oscar nominee in any category, until he was surpassed by Justin Henry's nomination, at age 8, in the Supporting Actor category for Kramer vs. Kramer (1979).

The Face. I don`t like anything pasty, but I don`t like this pancake of make-up everybody`s wearing. Across the room it may look all right, but not when you get close. The main thing is I don`t like the way it smells.
