HE intends to catch a recently restored 4K version of Dennis Hopper‘s under-appreciated Out Of The Blue (’80) at the Metrograph on Sunday, 11.28. The film’s star, Linda Manz, passed from lung cancer in August ’20. Hopper was substance abusing when he did publicity for Out of the Blue. I know because I tried to interview him at a Manhattan hotel sometime in April ’80, and he kept me waiting for over two hours — guess why? But at least now I can say I blew off a Dennis Hopper interview, etc. I have that memory. He came down to the lobby at the last minute as I was walking out, and I remember that hyper look in his eyes.
