Rest In Peace, Love & Serenity... You Are Missed on Earth.

Actor, director, artist
1954-2010

Dennis Lee Hopper (May 17, 1936 - May 29, 2010) was an American actor, filmmaker and artist. As a young man, Hopper became interested in acting and eventually became a student of the Actors' Studio. He made his first television appearance in 1954, and appeared in two films featuring James Dean, Rebel Without a Cause (1955) and Giant (1956). During the next 10 years, Hopper appeared frequently on television in guest roles, and by the end of the 1960s had played supporting roles in several films.

He directed and starred in Easy Rider (1969), winning an award at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay as co-writer. "With its portrait of counterculture heroes raising their middle fingers to the uptight middle-class hypocrisies, Easy Rider became the cinematic symbol of the 1960s, a celluloid anthem to freedom, macho bravado and anti-establishment rebellion."[1] Film critic Matthew Hays notes that "no other persona better signifies the lost idealism of the 1960s than that of Dennis Hopper."[2]

He was unable to build on his success for several years, until a featured role in Apocalypse Now (1979) brought him attention. He subsequently appeared in Rumble Fish (1983) and The Osterman Weekend (1983), and received critical recognition for his work in Blue Velvet and Hoosiers, with the latter film garnering him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He directed Colors (1988) and played the villain in Speed (1994). Hopper's later work included a leading role in the television series Crash.

Hopper was also a prolific and acclaimed photographer, a profession he began in the 1960s

Could "Vegas Bob" be Middle Age Crazy? This post is dedicated to my friend (Dennis Hopper) "God rest his soul"

 

As everyone knows by now "Dennis Hopper" pasted away several weeks ago and I wanted to plug a little bit of my friends past. And as everyone knows by now Vegas Bob is going on a long road trip some time soon in November.

VB will be headed to Oregon, Northern California, and then across the southern states to Florida, up to the Carolina's, and to the upper Midwest.

I have a best friend in Oklahoma and we have been riding motorcycles (Iron Horses) for around 30 years now. So when I reach Tulsa Oklahoma my friend Jeff and I will be riding the "Harley Davidson's" to the Ozarks in Arkansas. It will be a blast and very similar to "Dennis Hopper" & his friend Peter Fonda in this film clip (Easy Rider).

Our hair styles, clothes and scooters will look different but for the most part we will be "FREE as the Wind".

Nu Nu's Businesses will be very busy at this time & Sherry will be attending school so VB will be traveling solo with his S/W by his side.

 

And once again this post has been dedicated to my friend "Dennis Hopper" ... we miss you buddy!

Well-Well Mott what a great tribute to Dennis Hopper and some great information on him I might add. Dennis had recently purchased a beautiful home at the Mandarin Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada "City Center" last year some time and he was looking very healthy at the time, it's so sad to see legends like this pass but we all go some time, but we can come back!

My suggestion to you Mott would be to edit this wonderful post and connect another 5 groups to it, Mr Hopper would be very pleased!

PS - I am going on a road across the southern states into Florida after my visit to Northern California & Oregon, if I hit Miami I might just give you a call.

It will be easy to track Vegas Bob because I will be video taping everywhere I go and plugging Cities, towns & communities along the way!

Wow... Sorry for not addressing the comments earlier... I've been swamped with LIFE... I've been following Vegas Bob for quite some time... "STALKING" (I'm a VIRTRUAL STALKER). Robert Swetz ~ Better known as "Vegas Bob" ~ ROBERT A.SWETZ - Commercial Real Estate (Commercial Real Estate - www.VegasBuildingsForSale.com): I don't know why the "link" is not working... I'm a moron- I guess.. :)

OK... I don't know the late Dennis Hopper at all. I do know Vegas Bob- via his contributions here in, on and around ActiveRain- He has posted quite a few entries that caught my attention... When I read VB's tribute to Mr. Hopper... I figured... "Let me add a bit MORE about DENNIS HOPPER... I had no idea that he died or what the hell he did.... I did knowthename, Dennis Hopper as an actor- thats about it." So... VB, aka Robert Swetz of Las Vegas (Lost Wages)~(Sin City).... Phil Leng, Ellen Caruso, Cathy Lee, Mari Montgomery, I will be editing this REBLOG and sticking it in some groups .... NOW, The question is..... WHAT GROUPS? Jeeeeeeeeez.....

Why can't things be a bit easier? Suggestions are very much welcome! Mott in Miami.... Awaiting The Arrival of Vegas Bob to Miami ~ Las Vegas Robert A.Swetz - I think Mr. A.Swetz would be proud of Miami Mott..... AND Mr. Hopper IS very pleased that we have given him respect and honor in the after-life ...

RIP HOPPER

DH definitely made significant contributions to our culture, as an artist, and actor.  Having watch several tributes after his passing, he certainly was "street smart", had business savy, and gave any of us who "grew-up" through the late 60's and early 70's (hippies) the OK to just be ourselves, shuck the phony guidelines of society and enjoy a bit of freedon....for awhile, until reality set in!
