Home Music Tejano / RegMex Dennis Hopper is dead: actor, 74, falls to cancer
E-mail Print PDF

Sneering, fast-talking, and a flash smiler, Dennis Hopper cut an unforgettable figure in movies.

He always played a 'good' bad guy, snarling with those manic eyes and a voice teetering on desperation, he was often mezmerizing on the big screen.

He died Saturday in Los Angeles at 74. Official cause of death was listed as prostate cancer.

According to news reports, Hopper was best known as the zany Hollywood wild man whose memorable and erratic career included an early turn in "Rebel Without a Cause," an improbable smash

 with "Easy Rider" and a classic character role in "Blue Velvet."

Hopper died Saturday at his home in the Los Angeles beach community of Venice, surrounded by family and friends, family friend Alex Hitz said. Hopper's manager announced in October 2009 that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The success of "Easy Rider," and the spectacular failure of his next film, "The Last Movie," fit the pattern for the talented but sometimes uncontrollable actor-director, who also had parts in such favorites as "Apocalypse Now" and "Hoosiers." He was a two-time Academy Award nominee, and in March 2010, was honored with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

My favorite Hopper movies included the big three - "Easy Rider," "Blue Velvet," and "Apocalypse Now."
