Probably Easy Rider, but I would think enough people would remember him as one of the few who seemed to call the shots and did things his way.
A little crazy and often on the edge, as creepy as he could be funny but very much one of a kind.

He Was Wicked In" Speed"  When He Was Driving Keanu Reeves Nuts To Try And Save Annie In The Bus...  And In Easy Rider He Was Grand.  A Lot Of His Characters Were Nasty And Almost Creepy.. I Grew Up Watching Different Strokes.. Gary Coleman Had A Stressful Life..Did He Have Several Health Problems Because Of His Height?

I think Gary did well as a child actor, but as he matured, he developed Health and emotional problems. He had a reputation as sometimes having a nasty streak.

So sorry to hear that he has died, probably remembered most for his performnance in Easy Rider but I although think he was great in Rebel without a Cause and other movies too many to mention.

He was a good actor for sure....But I have mixed feelings as to why he would divorce his wife, just before he knew he was about to die.
Do U think he did it for a good reason, or not ?
If anything.....at least he made sure he didn't go thru several years of divorce proceedings !!
It's a shame he died of a disease that might have been prevented.

I liked him in easy rider. He had a "wing nut" but sophisticated persona that appealed to me, almost like an experienced Nicholas Cage.

For me probably Hoosiers or Easy Rider. I admired his love of life and his F. U. Attitude towards conformity.

I'm not sure.  My first memory of him was when he played a lame Deputy on Gunsmoke years ago. I watched him from then on because I thought he was very talented.
