Dennis Hopper facts

  • He attended the Actors Studio, made his first television appearance in 1954, and soon after appeared alongside James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause (1955) and Giant (1956)
  • In the next ten years he made a name in television, and by the end of the 1960s had appeared in several films
  • Hopper also began a prolific and acclaimed photography career in the 1960s
  • Hopper made his directorial film debut with Easy Rider (1969), which he and co-star Peter Fonda wrote with Terry Southern
  • The film earned Hopper a Cannes Film Festival Award for "Best First Work" and a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay (shared with Fonda and Southern)
  • Journalist Ann Hornaday wrote: "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"
  • Film critic Matthew Hays notes that, o other persona better signifies the lost idealism of the 1960s than that of Dennis Hopper"
  • Hopper was unable to capitalize on his Easy Rider success for several years
  • In 1970 he filmed The Last Movie, cowritten by Stewart Stern and photographed by Laszlo Kovacs in Peru, and completed production in 1971
  • It won the prestigious CIDALC Award at that year's Venice Film Festival, but Universal Studios leaders expected a blockbuster like Easy Rider, and did not like the film or give it an enthusiastic release, while American film audiences found it confounding - as convoluted as an abstract painting
