Monte Hellman, visionary director of cult films like "Two-Lane Blacktop" and "The Shooting", has died, aged 91. As a Beach Boys fan, I am very grateful to Monte Hellman for seeing the potential of Dennis Wilson and giving him a lead role in the poetic road movie, "Two-Lane Blacktop", in 1971. He got the best out of Dennis, and his film is an essential part of any serious Beach Boys collection. RIP Monte Hellman

Monte (who's worked with some great actors) was VERY complimentary of Dennis. In the commentary track for the film, he said that Dennis was an ideal actor in the sense that he was the most unselfconscious actor he ever directed. Dennis did his scenes as though everything that was happening was real. He seemed completely unaware of being filmed. Dennis' only real issue was remembering his lines (though there weren't that many of them).
