Dennis Hopper on Marilyn..
"I think it's important to note that when I was studying at the Actors Studio, and I was the lowest of the low, a nothing, the new kid, not even acknowledged by Lee Strasberg, it was Marilyn who watched me work, who asked me what I was reading, and who asked me if I was working, getting jobs, meeting people. I was so stunned by her kindness and her beauty that my horn-dog tendencies were not operating, so she saw only a scared, eager kid failing badly to make a mark. Let me tell you something: I could throw away a lot of things I've picked up over the years--and I mean intentionally--so that I could keep the memory of that porcelain angel walking past me and tapping my arm in comradeship. You don't forget something--or someone--like that." --Dennis Hopper on Marilyn Monroe/Interview with James Grissom/1997/Photograph of Marilyn by Michael Ochs, from 1955/Courtesy of Corbis/
