I haven't seen a lot of his more famous work, but he was always a great villain.

"He never played me false until he kilt me."

The man knew how to read a line (that one from True Grit). I re-watched The American Friend not too long ago; he did all right in that one, too.

Well, I'll always think of Speed when he comes to mind:

Yea, he's good in The American Friend but he'll always be Frank Booth to me.

A great loss for almost all the world of arts: acting, directing, painting, photography. I'm sure glad he survived the 70's and early 80's, but I wished he would have made 100 years.
To my life he was the most influential person ever. EASY RIDER and his very own character as well as his career and his way of life was even more groundbreaking, changing and CRAZY than the life of my other hero Sam Peckinpah. 115 years of cinema and my two favorite films were both filmed during the same two - three months!  May / June / July 1968 - THE WILD BUNCH & EASY RIDER.

I met Peter Fonda several times but I never met Dennis. 5 years ago I made a 10-page special on EASY RIDER for Cinema Retro magazine which in a way led to a big book project on ER we had to stop last year thanks to Dennis' lawyers (everybody else had been given their ok already). Last year I finally found back doors to him (I'm sure his 'suits' never really explained our project to him) when he was suddenly diagnosed and everything changed. I hope I can still pay him this ultimate tribute, a hardcover coffee table book on the film that changed Hollywood.

Here are a few scarce images from my archive, Dennis directing ER and Dennis & Sam during OSTERMAN WEEKEND. Interesting trivia: Dennis acted 1957 in Peckinpah's first important gig (THE RIFLEMAN pilot written & created by Sam: THE SHARPSHOOTER) as well in Sam's last feature THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND (1982). Back in 1957 they both used to smoke marihuana on the lot together, Dennis later stating 'Sam was the only cool dude around there...'

Now that they both sobered up, they can talk about art forever, up there in movie heaven. Thanks for this inspired life!

Hopper was one of the few actors who could thrive in an any era. His career is proof. He obviously will be missed. There aren't too many actors who could excel in stuff like Giant and then movies like Blue Velvet, Rumble Fish and The American Friend. RIP

I listened to 'in dreams' the moment I heard.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

Watched Hang 'Em High today and was surprised to see Hopper turn up in a bit part early in the film. He did a lot of Westerns.

I'll never forget his speech about the origin of Sicilians in True Romance. He was pure badass. And that was "just" a supporting role!

RIP. :'(
