Months after revealing that he was battling prostate cancer, Dennis Hopper was back in front of the cameras on Friday when he received the 2,403rd star on Hollywood’s Walk of fame.”
The 73-year actor, who disclosed his cancer last October, appeared to be in good spirits as he arrived for the ceremony in front of the Egyptian Theatre.
Before taking the stage, Hopper listened to tributes from actor Viggo Mortensen and producer Mark Canton. Also in attendance were “Easy Rider” co-star Jack Nicholson, “Blue Velvet” director David Lynch, singer Johnny Mathis and philanthropist Eli Broad. Coopyright © 2010 Los Angeles Times
I worked with Mark Canton when he was at Warner Bros. Studios and I was Post Production Supervisor on the ground-breaking, black rap musical “Krush Groove.”
