The Award Season Express made its first stop of the new year in the middle of the desert a couple hours east of Hollywood at the annual Palm Springs International Film Festival gala.
Nowadays, Jackie Cooper may be best known for his role as the gruff newspaper editor in all four original "Superman" movies. But his Hollywood success story started long before that, with his reign as one of the most popular child stars of the 1930s and an Oscar nod at age 9.
Jackie Cooper, the former child movie star who won a best actor Oscar nomination at the age of 9 for "Skippy" and grew up to play The Daily Planet editor in Christopher Reeves' four "Superman" movies, has died. He was 88.

Jackie Cooper, 88, died Tuesday at a nursing facility in Santa Monica, Calif., said his other son, John.
