COOPER'S VAST REPERTOIRE See. Other Side COLONEL EDWIN H. COOPER, D.S.C. COL. EDWIN H. COOPER, D.S.C. The Man With The Marvelous Movies Figure HE WON THE DISTINGUISHED SERVICE CROSS IN WORLD WAR I Colonel Cooper has the rare distinction of having won both the Distinguished Service Cross (D.S.C.), and the Silver Star Medal. As Photographic Officer, Signal Corps, 26th Division he had a habit (see picture made in 1918) of rising above the trenches and filming the boys as they went over the top. For bravery in action, and for bringing in wounded from No Man's Land, he won the medals. What he did was quite outside the line of duty, but Colonel—then Captain—Cooper let nothing stand between him and a good picture. He still doesn't. Col. Cooper gave us a great evening last night and we are indebted to him. The pictures were magnificent. I had no idea that even an expert photographer could be able to get such grand pictures under such difficult and adverse conditions.— Waterbury Forum, Waterbury, Conn. Col. Cooper as usual has the most timely and outstanding documentary film in America today. He seems to have the most happy faculty of always turning up at the right time at the right place with the right camera.— Buffalo Athletic Club, Buffalo, N. Y. I do not think that I have anywhere seen photographs equal to those which Col. Cooper showed us last evening.— Western Reserve Univ., Cleveland, Ohio For photographic clarity and photographic effect, for skillful selection of subject matter, Col. Cooper has done a job which it is difficult to write about with proper restraint.— Merle Crowell, National Arts Club, N.Y. Col. Cooper's lecture was very well received. He has the most beautiful illustrations of this interesting country.— Colorado Museum of Natural History, Denver, Colorado Available Coast-to-Coast Write — Wire — Phone for Available Dates, to HAROLD R.

COOPER, D.S.C., has recently returned from an astounding aerial journey that puts into shade the exploits of the legendary Flying Carpet of the Arabian Nights! Col. Cooper, one of the world's greatest photographers, daring front-line filmer of World War I, was given the blessing of the powers that be and told — GO film G-I Joe as he lives and fights and plays the world around! So Col. Cooper was off! To still embattled Britain, to strife-torn Italy, to North Africa, to Egypt, to modern Palestine, middle east playground of war weary American and British troops, to the Persian Gulf where oil causes only untroubled waters, to Iran (Persia) and its capital, Teheran, where War Leaders met, to restless India and at last to steaming, tropical, mountainous Burma. His color camera clicked everywhere. He gave no quarter to either general or private, fighting enemies, or fighting insects. In Burma he captured the determined face of Vinegar Joe Stilwell while his military genius was still pushing Americans to do humanly impossible things. He roamed with and pictured Merrill's Marauders. He went up and up over the new Ledo Road that is replacing the old Burma Road to where sky and earth were one, high in Himalayan clouds. Then back to the States in a bewildering whirl of speed. India to New York in 3 1/2 days! He had travelled 32,000 miles and exposed 22,000 feet of film. Veteran lecturer, veteran camera-man of two wars, Col. Cooper immediately started on his current sensational tour bringing to American fathers and mothers the first and only movie story in color of the far flung pin points of world war where their loved ones are doing a superhuman job for Victory — with a smile. This, however, was by no means Col. Cooper's first overseas expedition since World War blazed forth again. In 1939 in Finland as American Commissioner to the Olympic Games, he lingered to get a first taste of new-style war as Russia and Finland clinched in snow covered battle. And he most magnificently filmed Finland. In 1940 he had missions to Peru, Chile and Argentina making his exquisitely beautiful color movies of the first two. Then 1941 found him in convoy, daring submarines and air attacks, to visit and record in immortal film England in Wartime. That picture was his major program for two seasons and excited audiences all over the land until the photographing Colonel made his most recent sensational air tour. Other Great Colonel Cooper Lectures ALL IN SUPERB NATURAL COLOR MOVIES PALESTINE TODAY (New) What do you know about modern Palestine? When you see Colonel Cooper's revealing pictures you will undoubtedly be surprised at the little you really do know of this modern Jewish state. Under the inspiration of the Zionist Movement, Jews from all over the world, many from America, have returned to their homeland to make it a thoroughly up-to-date place. The new city of Tel Aviv, on the shores of the Mediterranean, is a wonder spot of the world, destined to become a popular resort. Colonel Cooper in his recently taken pictures shows you historical spots, Holy places of three faiths, modern agriculture, schools, colleges, hospitals, factories. It is the favorite vacation spot in the Middle East of American soldiers on furlough. It will all amaze you. WARTIME ENGLAND When things were at their lowest ebb in England, Colonel Cooper went there and made a natural color movie that shows the bulldog breed refusing to be frightened out. Ships in convoy sink before your eyes, bombs blitz England, but people carry on. A fine inspiration. CHILE A picture of rare beauty of the long narrow republic that stretches down the west coast of South America, from the bleak plains near the equator to gorgeous Alpine scenery near Cape Horn. PERU Peru, land of the Conquistadores, retains even today the color, the romance of another era. Col. Cooper has captured in color both the lovely old, the efficient new. A pleasing, colorful travel film. FINLAND Col. Cooper first went to Finland as Commissioner to the Olympic Games scheduled for Helsingfors. He filmed the wild beauty of this picture-laden country before it became torn with the strife of war.
