  1. Very rococo and Fabrege! I can’t remember the details, but I think part of joke of the bathtub was that Cooper was an adorable lunk who had obviously been swindled… I’ll have to watch it again!

  2. One of my first crushes — and my most recent (departed) dog was named after Gary Cooper. Tall, dark, handsome and brave. The dog was handsome, but far from brave. That tub would have terrified Coops!
