Whether Hopper was conservative or not isn't the point, really.
I didn't mean conservative in a political way (though she was that, too); if you look at my post again, you'll see I paired it with the words "and prudish."After all, the word also applies to traditional attitudes and values; she was conservative when it came to certain subjects. Obviously the papers of the time didn't print that kind of story, but there were also certain topics she didn't consider seemly or proper, whether in films, TV or in newspapers. Premarital or extramarital sex was one; women's body parts were another - particularly those that Monty Python later referred to as the "naughty bits.'
