    Director Dennis Hopper is from Lemon Grove , or spent a good chunk of childhood there- lived on Mallard St near Encanto border – went to LG Jr high & went to either Helix or Grossmont and busted in his acting chops at the Old Globe – his father was a postman and his mother contd to live in LG up into her late 70s, early 80s , a real nice lady – who sometimes hinted that her son was loose with the facts on his upbringing, painting it to be alittle more dramatic than it was

    Alonso is a immigrant from pre-Chavez era Venezuela , or Colombia, same crap. The best is when the fat dude gets busted and they bring out his nude chola.

    The film “Drive By” was the best summation of the Chicago gang experience. Nobody said “ese” and all the characters wore 3/4 leather coats.

    This article brought back some serious memories, simone. Hahahah. Yeah, I remember the Colors Cholo being a popular white kids Halloween costume from high school to college.

    I forgot about Don Cheadle being in this. I always thought Devil in a Blue Dress was his big breakout role.

    Fun article.

    Dennis Hopper’s mom denied him as a son when he was first starting out with all his crazy movies, I should Dennis and I are cousins. His grandfather and mine were brothers.
