They say celebrities always pass in threes… yesterday it was Gary Coleman, and today it’s Dennis Hopper. Dennis Hopper was a very talented actor/writer/director who gave us some great b-movies over his 56 year career in the business. Some of the finer points of his B-Movie resume are: Land of the Dead, Space Truckers, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and two of my personal favorite non B-Movies Blue Velvet and Jesus’ Son amongst many, many others.
Dennis passed away in his Venice Beach home earlier this morning after a year long battle with prostate cancer. He was 74. At this very moment, I’m editing a review for Super Mario Bros., and wanted to take time out and say from all of us at Internal Bleeding, Dennis, you will be missed.
