      Bullseye, twinarchers! Excellente! I was replying to The Zaca with three more clues when your answer zoomed in – ones involving Leland Hayward, Margaret Sullavan, and Sandra Bullock. Never thought anyone would answer so fast. Superb work!

      Here’s Hopper when at Helix High in San Diego, after he moved from the family farm in Dodge City:


      And here he is channelling some Sean Flynn for his role in Apocalyse Now:


      Novelist Gwen Davis wrote that Hopper used to swing on a rope from the porch of her home in Laurel Canyon to the porch of (Rebel Without a Cause co-cast member) Nick Adams, a la Robin Hood, yelling Errol’s name.
