Stanton Brannin Clancy Cooper was bor in Boise, Idaho on July 23, 1906. Before coming to Hollywood he was a Broadway actor appearing in 35 plays. He entered films with Warner Bros. in 1941. But despite his distinctive theater pedigree, Cooper’s busy screen career proved middling at best and he mainly played bit roles. A notable exception came in the 1944 serial “Haunter Harbor”, as one of hero Kane Richmond’s two sidekicks. A veteran of more than 100 feature films, the veteran actor went on to also embrace television, appearing in over 200 episodes in shows such as ‘The Lone Ranger’, ‘The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin’, ‘Gunsmoke’, ‘The Twilight Zone’, ‘Maverick’, ‘Dr. Kildare’ and ‘The Wild Wild West. Married to novelist Elizabeth Cooper, Clancy died of a heart attack while driving in Hollywood.
