Dennis Hopper Dead at 74 of Prostate Cancer

by the Left Coast Rebel

Rest in peace, Dennis Hopper. If not known more for his portrayal of the unsultry or crusty iconoclast then possibly he will be remembered for acting out the perfect badass character. It's funny, when I think of anyone in Hollywood that may have actually lived the hard living life portrayed on the silver screen, Dennis Hopper comes to mind.

Entertainment Weekly has Dennis Hopper's top 12 movies, as follows:

Easy Rider
Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
The Last Movie (1971)
The American Friend (1977)
Apocalypse Now (1979)
Out of the Blue (1980)
Blue Velvet (1986)
Hoosiers (1986)
River's Edge (1987)
Colors (1988)
True Romance (1993)
Speed (1994)

    That sucks! Peter Fonda owes Dennis more than he owes his daddy for the sur name he inherited and the wasted opportunity he was handed along with the name...same goes for the rest of Henty's kids.

    "Henty's" was s'posed to be "Henry's"...Molson...errr...Berma shave...

  3. Hard drinkin', hard livin' hard partyin'...a little peace would be in order!

  4. Proof - totally, I am surprised that he made it to 74. Then again my great aunt lived to 101 and smoked a pack a day....

  5. LCR: Reminds me of a joke.
    "I come from a family of long livers.
    My grandfather lived to be 106. Fell off his polo pony!
    My grandma died at 112...but the baby lived! "
