King Vidor, feeling that Jackie Cooper "didn't seem to get into the spirit of the part," pretended to fire assistant director Robert Golden because Cooper was fond of him. After Cooper burst into tears, the article continues, Vidor shot the scene he wanted, then rewarded him for being a good boy by re-hiring Golden. Cooper's autobiography makes no mention of this incident, but notes that as a child Cooper cared neither for Golden or Wallace Beery. This story is undoubtedly based on an incident that occurred during filming of "Skippy," another movie released in 1931; the director (Cooper's uncle) pretended to shoot Jackie's dog. Cooper titled his autobiography "Please Don't Shoot My Dog."
