    Really? Obie (and I!) quite enjoyed the 70's. Our mothers...not so much.

    I'll miss the Dennis of his youth. Sadly he had long since passed, leaving a bitter greedy husk, by recent accounts. Apparently he was trying to disinherit his wife for fear she'd donate money to the liberals. LOL, age changes ppl, he became what he eared in his wild and crazy days. I hope he's up there in the fringed jacket, enjoying all that hair!

    A fighter right to the end. His influence on my generation was prominent no matter your political views. Just a peek at the baby boomers thought process and our mark on the United States way of life. You will be missed but not forgotten.

    That was one freaked out movie. Nobody really seemed to care about the dead girl, which seemed disturbing to me, but the movie was funny, too. A reflection on the times I suppose.

    One of Hopper's better roles imo.

    That movie was based on a true story, I remember reading it in Rolling Stone.

    such interesting timing to me, 2 months after the death of my cousin who Hopper modeled for his character of the crazy photo journalist in Apocalypse Now. Also, they both converted to Republicansim in their later years and were lucky to die at 74 given their drug fueled eary years.
