Hopper got to see son in acting debut before he died

The Easy Rider star was dying of cancer and Van Sant knew the actor didn’t have long left, so he handed Hopper a reel featuring Henry’s debut in Restless.

The director tells The Hollywood Reporter, “He said that Henry reminded him of himself in Rebel Without a Cause.

“Dennis was very happy and relieved that Henry, who set out to become a painter, was acting.”
