Marilyn Cooper
Marilyn H. Cooper was born to Benjamin Cooper (born 1907) and Edna "Ettie" Becker (1907 - 1982), and was an only child. She married Sabu Dastagir, an actor from India, in May of 1948 in Encino, California. Sabu and Marilyn met on the set of "Song of India" (1949), where Marilyn filled in for the actual lead, Gail Russell, and played "Princess Tara," in an uncredited role. Read about the movie at About the movie "The Song of India" (1949). And see a more detailed account of her storied career at Marilyn Cooper: Professions. Sabu and Marilyn had two children together: Jasmine Sabu and Paul Sabu. After Sabu's death in 1963, Marilyn never remarried, saying she had no need to since she had been married to a wonderful man like Sabu. Marilyn had appeared mainly on Broadway, performing in shows such as "Mame", "Two by Two", "The Odd Couple", and "West Side Story".

Jasmine Sabu
Jasmine A Sabu was born to Sabu Dastagir (1924 - 1963), a movie star from India simply known as "Sabu", and actress Marilyn Cooper (1934 - 2009). She had a brother, Paul Sabu, who became a composer. Jasmine never married. Following in her show business parents' footsteps, Jasmine was also part of the entertainment industry, but not as an actor. She trained animals for the movies and also wrote a screenplay about her famous father: See Sabu's Daughter Scripts The Second Coming of 'Thief Of Bagdad' Arthur J Pais July 1999's-daughter-script-the-second-coming-of-thief-of-bagdad-Arthur-J-Pais-july-1999. Jasmine's father, Sabu Dastagir died near the age of 39 of a heart attack, and his death made headlines around the world. See 'Elephant Boy' Sabu Dastagir Succumbs at 39. Jasmine also died at a relatively young age - 44, shortly after she completed her film script. Jasmine was buried beside her father in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, California. Her headstone is inscribed: "To Our Precious Daughter And Sister - Until The Day Break, And The Shadows Flee Away."

For fifty years I have been a Document Examiner and that is how I earn my living. For over 50 years I have also been a publicist for actors, singers, writers, composers, artists, comedians, and many progressive non-profit organizations. I am a Librettist-Composer of a Broadway musical called, "Nellie Bly" and I am in the process of making small changes to it. In addition, I have written over 100 songs that would be considered "popular music" in the genre of THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK.
My family consists of four branches. The Norwegians and The Italians and the Norwegian-Americans and the Italian Americans.
