BOOK REVIEW: 'Dennis Hopper': Magnificent Portrait

Rate: 1 Flag

Reviewing my book, David M. Kinchen writes, “Run — don’t walk — to the nearest book vendor and get your hands on a copy of Peter L. Winker’s ‘Dennis Hopper: The Wild Ride of a Hollywood Rebel.’ I was hooked on Winkler’s biography from the minute I picked it up, and I suspect that will be the case with other film addicts. ‘Dennis Hopper’  is the first book to cover the entire life and career of the man who hung out with James Dean, Elvis Presley, and Jack Nicholson, costarred in and directed ‘Easy Rider’ — perhaps his most famous film — and came back big in ‘Blue Velvet,’ overcoming years of alcoholism and drug addiction. And, if you’re hooked on celebrity scandals, Winkler provides more than enough of them to satisfy those afflicted with that guilty pleasure.”
