Dennis Hopper, 74, passed away today in his home in Venice, Calif., from complications of prostate cancer, I will always remember him certain movies, “The Giant” (with James Dean, Rock Hudson, and Elizabeth Taylor), “Hoosiers” (classic sports film one of my favorites with Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey) and of course “Easy Rider” (he wrote, produced, directed and starred with Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson). He was in other films as well “Apocalypse Now” (with Martin Sheen and Marlon Brando) and Blue Velvet come to mind. The last two films I mention were considered landmark films for Hopper.

Below is part of the backstory on Easy Rider.

That film, “Easy Rider,” which Mr. Hopper wrote with Mr. Fonda and Terry Southern and directed, followed a pair of truth-seeking bikers (Mr. Fonda and Mr. Hopper) on Easy Rider Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda Posters 300x225 Video~Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider~Ultimate Boomer Generation Moviea cross-country journey to New Orleans.

It won the prize for best first film at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival.

Mr. Hopper also shared an Oscar nomination for writing the film, while a nomination for best supporting actor went to a little-known Jack Nicholson.

“Easy Rider” introduced much of its audience, if not Mr. Hopper, to cocaine, and the film’s success accelerated a period of intense drug and alcohol use that Mr. Hopper later said nearly killed him. You may read the entire story @New York Times


Below is a narrative of Dennis Hopper’s career.
