Hi Ben Mankowicz,

 

 

 

 

I pause today from Memorial Day Movie Marathon to tell you that your friend and collague Dennis Hopper the yungest star who guest star on 'The Medic' with Richard Boone and Warner Bros.' leading man in the film 'Giant' died today in his 74 years while taking turn for the worse for having prostate cancer. Bob show us a film about Giant and aired on TCM last month starring the late James Dean, The Late Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor and Carroll Baker in that epic story about the 1920's right up to the 1950s which is 58'. Dennis was a familiar face to viewers but only starred in one episode as told on tv of the medic. Hopper build his success in movies like this and Rebel without a cause. In the late 60s, he starred in the film easy rider in which was good in a scene with peter fonda. Next, the 80s gave us The Osterman Weekend, Apocalypse Now, Blue Velvet and Hoosiers. He even garnered an oscar for best supporting actor in the film and that was followed by his only directorial inColors and Sandra Bullock's latest film Speed plying a villian who tried to pull a gun at the bus. He wasborn Dennis Lee Hopper and grew up in Dodge City, Kansas the son of Majorie Mae. Are a marathon of Dennis Hopper's film of the 60s and 70s start with you at 6am followed by the eesential special 'Easy Rider' at 8pm and then at 10pm Osborne continue remembering Dennis Hopper. So after his success of the medic playing the epileptic paitent, What is 'rebel without a cause' that made him a star?

 

 

Let's hope is in this tribute as tcm roll the this promo.
