R.I. P. Dennis Hopper

At the 2006 Palm Beach International Film Festival Red Carpet Gala at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, Dennis Hopper was introduced to Cinema Dave. Hopper commented that her had "raccoon eyes" from the sunglasses that he wore while golfing with Donald Trump at Mara a Lago. Hopper thane mentioned that he was looking forward to the Alice Copper Golf tournament.

Cinema Dave burst out laughing and asked,
"Alice Cooper and Dennis Hopper, two of the baddest boys of the sixties and seventies, could you ever imagine that you would be comparing golf scores?"

Dennis Hopper joined Cinema Dave in laughter, Hopper seemed pretty shocked on the long, way strange trip that he had been on.

Dennis Hopper and Cinema Dave talked about Vincent Price and the some of the art that was being auctioned, Hopper did admit that he had not the time to look at the artwork, which featured a portrait of Marilyn Monroe by Tony Curtis.

When receiving his acceptance speech, Hopper acknowledged the educational intent of PBiFF and he encouraged young people to read Samuel Johnson's "Lives of the Poets." Despite his wild and crazy youth and messy marriage history, Hopper proved to be a class act for locals in 2006.
