image Dennis Hopper as Johnny Drake in Night Tide (1961), Curtis Harrington's eerie psychodrama. Night Tide was Hopper's first lead, in which he played lovestruck sailor Johnny Drake, whose new girlfriend may be a cursed modern sea siren, luring men to their deaths. "We made that film for $28,000 and it was in Time magazine's 10 Best Pictures to See for the whole year but nobody saw it because we did it non-union and the projectionists were all union and we didn't have a (union) stamp on the print so no theatre would screen it," Hopper says. http://www.theage.com.au/news/entertainment/film/changing-lanes/2009/02/05/1233423380602.html?page=fullpage
