Thinking Cinema honors actor Harry Dean Stanton, who died on September 15 at the age of 91. We are focusing here on his films, though he had a long career in television as well. IMDb lists 110 film credits for him as well as a number of other credits (including one video game). He was a versatile and highly gifted actor who will be greatly missed.
My usual disclaimer seems redundant this week, given the number of film credits mentioned. It is only possible to give a sampling from Mr. Stanton’s career of more than sixty years. As always, reader suggestions are welcome. Please feel free to suggest a favorite from among his films by writing via the comments below.
