May 14, 1961: Gary Cooper dies of cancer at his home, 200 Baroda Drive, Holmby Hills. He was 60.

“Cooper, Hollywood's homespun hero, was another product of its big star era -- the same era in which names like Clark Gable, John Wayne, Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power became household words to millions. It was an era which Hollywood itself believes is gone forever,” The Times said.

And yesterday they announced that Harmon Killebrew will no longer fight his esophageal cancer. So his days are numbered.

This reminds us that 50 years after Gary Cooper died, we still cannot fight cancer for most people. What a shame.
