One of America's most intriguing show business luminaries and a true rebel, Dennis Hopper's amazing life was a roller coaster series of triumphs and failures. 

From Hopper's early days in Hollywood (where he had an affair with 16-year-old Natalie Wood and took acting lessons from James Dean), to his '60s head trips and the making of Easy Rider to his lost years in Taos, and finally, to his recovery and political right turn in the '80s, Dennis Hopper: The Wild Ride of a Hollywood Rebel unsparingly documents Hopper's journey from a self-destructive bad boy to a reformed member of the Hollywood establishment and iconic survivor of the counterculture.
