DENNIS HOPPER DIES OF CANCER

 
Actor Dennis Hopper lost his battle with prostate cancer yesterday, 30 May, at the age of 74.The actor was one of Hollywood's original mavericks, and the performances of his early career were often mesmerising portrayals of angry, drug-sucking, unstable outsiders – like his small role as 'Goon' alongside James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause. He also re-invented the 'great American road movie' with his legendary 1960s counterculture film Easy Rider that put the "trip" in road trip, a film that he starred in, co-wrote and directed. Hopper was also a prolific photographer, painter, and sculptor, and has always been, personally, a great source of inspiration and a true role model! Check out our tribute, Hopper at his scariest best as Frank in David Lynch’s ‘Blue Velvet’….
