Dennis Hopper (1936 – 2010)

May 29, 2010

It was very saddening to hear the news of the death of Hollywood maverick Dennis Hopper today. Hopper had an illustrious and unconventional career as an actor, director and painter. Crime fiction fans may well remember him best for his excellent, underrated and erotically-charged film The Hot Spot (1990), adapted from Charles Williams’ Hell Hath No Fury (1953). The film is a testament to Hopper’s skill as a filmmaker, and a fine addition to the neo-noir genre.

Below is the original trailer for the film.
