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.

SALEM, Ore. – So long, Cuckoo’s Nest.

 

Oregon State Hospital, the mental institution where the 1975 movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was filmed, is making way for a new complex. Most of the dilapidated, 125-year-old main building will be torn down and replaced starting this fall.

 

Although mean Nurse Ratched was pure fiction, the Oregon State Hospital has struggled with some very real troubles over the years, including overcrowding, crumbling floors and ceilings, outbreaks of scabies and stomach flu, sexual abuse of children by staff members, and patient-on-patient assaults.
