Jackie Cooper was an American actor, film director and producer. Cooper’s career began in the world of acting. His first job was in the short film “Boxing Gloves” in 1929, for which he could build a successful character. Thanks to this job, Paramount contacted him and offered him a contract and in that period he was nominated for the Oscar for best actor, at the age of eight due to his role in “Skippy”. With this film he was catapulted into stardom and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer hired him and he made numerous films. During the Second World War his career was interrupted and when he got back he kept with his career in the film world, especially in series, as an actor, but also as a director and producer.
