Vintage Trailer of the Week 49

When I heard about Dennis Hopper's recent death, my first thought wasn't of Easy Rider or Blue Velvet, the obvious and most-mentioned references which dominated the many obituaries in the media.
Instead I thought first of his great scene with Christopher Walken in True Romance. And then, I thought of Out of the Blue (1980), his third film as director, and one of the great lost films of the 80s. Starring the eerily brilliant Linda Manz from Malick's Days of Heaven alongside Hopper, featuring Neil Young songs, its grim and moving and often hard to watch. But definitely worthwhile.
