Again with the movies

I was talking today to a "film" friend who told me there's still anger in Lumberton, NC because Blue Velvet is set there but was actually shot in Wilmington. Dennis Hopper looks so cute and young!

Speaking of Mr. Hopper, he turns 74 today (May 17th). So he was likely 49-50 when "Blue Velvet" was filmed.

Kewl.

Oh and if you want to see a really young Mr. Hopper, try this. Hopper plays "Goon".

Bob said...

These days he's not doing so well. Prostate cancer.

Gregg said...

Yes and if that weren't enough for him to handle, he's proceding with a bitter divorce from his deathbead.

Oopsie, I meant "proceeding", the spelling of which should not be confused with that of "receding" and "preceding".

Bob said...

I confuse those words all the time, as in "my proceeding hairline." Hee hee.

A sad note to conclude this thread: Dennis Hopper died today.
