Dennis Hopper

Dennis Hopper at one time was a real favorite of mine.
Not as much now. The ads for an investment company has soured him in my eye.

He sold out.

Few have the nerve and balls to say what they mean and mean what they say.

Hopper and my first meeting was on "Paris Trout".
I was thrilled to be working with him.

At the time he was giving Don Johnson hell about not helping to promote their movie "Two Moon Junction". Which I think is a really good movie.
His son Henry Lee Hopper was born while we were working on "Paris Trout".
So we all got to hear Hopper talk a lot about life.

I just never thought he would sell his soul for an insurance company.

Thanks for reading,

A friendly correction: Johnson and Hopper made The Hot Spot not that movie; and frankly, sobriety, old age and four or five ex-wives (alimony?) may have lead him to do the insurance ads.
