R.I.P. Dennis Hopper

Sad to see him go. He's probably having a Pabst Blue Ribbon in the Great Beyond as we speak. :wink:

As a tribute, here's an early role and one of my faves, Night Tide (1961):

Thanks for posting, I haven't seen those clips before. Despite his death being no surprise, I was sad to hear this morning that Dennis Hopper had died. He was probably one of films most colourful characters and he turned in some memorable performances. May he rest in peace.

He was a good actor, but he was one of those Hollywood bad boy types that I didn't find appealing. Glad he got to see his star though.

I am crushed by this news. As a bonafide 80s child, his stellar performances in Blue Velvet, River's Edge and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 were a major part of my young adulthood.
