LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dennis Hopper is a permanent part of Hollywood.

Bandaged and looking frail, the 73-year-old actor and filmmaker was honored Friday with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

Hopper, who is suffering from prostate cancer, appeared gaunt and was helped to the stage by a friend. The actor explained that his bandages were the result of a fall Thursday outside his home.

Surrounded by his family, Hopper thanked Hollywood for being "my home and my schooling."

Jack Nicholson, Viggo Mortensen, David Lynch and Dwight Yoakam were among the luminaries on hand to honor their friend and colleague.

Hundreds of camera-toting spectators lined Hollywood Boulevard for the 30-minute ceremony. Hopper's star is in front of the Egyptian Theatre.
