OBITUARY

Dennis Hopper dies at 74; actor directed counterculture classic ‘Easy Rider’

 

 

 

Hopper made his acting debut in ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ in 1955. He later descended into years of drug and alcohol abuse, but made a comeback in 1986 with his Oscar-nominated role in ‘Hoosiers.’

Dennis Hopper, the maverick director and costar of the landmark 1969 counterculture film classic “Easy Rider” whose drug- and alcohol-fueled reputation as a Hollywood bad boy preceded his return to sobriety and a career resurgence in the films ” Hoosiers” and “Blue Velvet,” died Saturday. He was 74.

WALK OF FAME

Dennis Hopper receives his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

 

 

 

A frail Dennis Hopper received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame thanking the town that took in a Kansas ‘farm boy’. The 73-year-old, who is reportedly terminally ill with prostate cancer, shared the day with friends Viggo Mortenson and Jack Nicholson.

 

‘Everyone here today that I’ve invited and obviously some that I haven’t invited have enriched my life tremendously,’ Hopper told the crowd.

 

‘They’ve shown me a world that I would never have seen being a farm boy from Dodge City, Kansas, and learning things I would never have learned.’

 

It has been a long journey for the actor who was born in Kansas in May 1936. Raised in Kansas City, Missouri and San Diego, California, he was voted most likely to succeed by high school classmates.

 

Mortenson and Nicholson were just two friends who worked with him during his near 50-year career. Nicholson was his co-star in the Sixties classic Easy Rider. Mortenson appeared with Hopper in two films The Indian Runner and Boiling Point.
