Iconic Legend, Actor-Director Dennis Hopper Dies at 74 – May 29, 2010

Cornwall ON – A beautifully flawed and talented man passed away.  Dennis Hopper has died from his fight with Cancer at the age of 74.   The actor, director, and art collector had been battling the effects of the disease.

He began acting in television in the 1950s, and by 1955 was appearing with James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause.” In the late ‘60s, he co-wrote, directed and starred in the counterculture classic “Easy Rider,” along with Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson, triggering a wave of anti-establishment films.

His spirit was renowned and shined through his movie roles over a career that lasted over six decades.

Dennis Hopper will always be remembered for his great movies. It’s very sad and a great loss. Not just for the movie industry but in general as he was a man of integrity. His most rememorable movie for me is Blue velvet.

Regards,
Jennifer
