In commemoration of the passing of Dennis Hopper (17 May 1936 - 29 May 2010), his performance in director/writer Curtis Harrington's 1961 horror/noir hybrid Night Tide is presented below. Hopper plays a lonely sailor who falls for an enticing and mysterious woman. His curiosity drives him as the movie progresses. The darkly (sadly, this print is also very dark and kind of beat up) atmospheric cinematography often shot around the Santa Monica Pier or Venice, California adds to the dreamy tone. It's a decidedly offbeat tale that had a difficult time finding an audience upon initial release, often playing the bottom bill on drive-in double and multiple features.
