U.S. actor Jackie Cooper dies at 88 - Arts & Entertainment - CBC News
"Jackie Cooper, a former child star who played Daily Planet editor Perry White in the four Superman films, has died. He was 88.

Cooper died in Santa Monica, Calif., on Tuesday of complications related to old age, his lawyer said.

One of the biggest child stars of the 1930s, Cooper sustained his acting career as a teen and young man, became a TV star and then worked as a director and producer before eventually returning to on-camera roles.

At nine, he became the youngest boy to be nominated for a best actor Oscar for the 1931 film Skippy, an adaptation of a popular comic strip."
