Favorite Movie: The Man Who Cheated Himself (1950) had a bit of a slow start but an exciting finish. The on-location shooting really added to the atmosphere of the film and it was nice to see Lee J. Cobb in a leading man role instead of playing somebody's father. I also enjoyed the first Indiana Jones movie (I'd only seen the snake pit part before - I have also already seen the Holy Grail one) and the Thor Trilogy (I'm not really a comic book movie person. If Hollywood stopped making them I wouldn't be upset at all).
Full movie - not great quality though

I visited my aunt on Long Island and while I was there I drove out to Montauk Lighthouse. On my way back I stopped by Gary Cooper's grave at Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary Cemetery in Southampton. He was moved there from Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California when his wife remarried in 1974 and moved to New York. Here is the Find a Grave entry.
Here's the coordinates so you can see exactly where his grave is located within the cemetery.
I picked a couple flowers off his grave to press. Someone else had left a nickel on his grave so I left a dime. It seemed the most appropriate coin since he played characters affected by the Great Depression and one of the popular songs of the time was "Brother Can You Spare a Dime?"
I felt kind of weird taking a selfie but I was by myself and if I didn't take one was I even there??
