Dennis Hopper, Iconic American Film Actor Dies After Long Battle with Cancer

Dennis Hopper, one of the more remarkable movies stars of the past few decades, died today of pancreatic cancer.  Never one to be pigeon holded, Hopper appeared in many roles which other actors probably would not have touched.  He was also well known for a life style which would have felled many other men!

His last major film role was with Sir Ben Kingsley in Elegy.  Appropriately enough, perhaps.

Here is our own short tribute to Dennis Hopper. Manohla Dargis of the New York Times narrates a look at the career of Dennis Hopper.
