    Sorry ’bout the cancer. He was a force of nature – like a tornado.

    I do think this early observation about Hopper explains about how his strange and strained road found its way to An American Carol.

    “Hopper and Fonda were joined on screen by a then-unknown Jack Nicholson as an alcoholic lawyer, but it was not a harmonious set. Hopper clashed violently with everyone and Fonda later described him as ‘a little fascist freak’.”

    “I mean, what are they gonna say when he’s gone? ‘Cause he dies when it dies, when it dies, he dies! What are they gonna say about him? He was a kind man? He was a wise man? He had plans? He had wisdom? Bullshit, man!”
