Who among us who are over 50 did not come to know Dennis Hopper as an actor and a real life, real time character of the first order?
And who among us did not come to really enjoy Hopper’s later work, the great movie roles that came after Easy Rider?
He was a rebel and a real artist who burned both ends of the candle during many years of his life.
In the end, he came to be recognized for coming away from the craziness of his youth and for his acting expertise.
Dennis Hopper, dead at 74.
