Actor Harry Dean Stanton Passes Away At The Age Of 91

PostFri Sep 15, 2017 10:27 pm

Actor Harry Dean Stanton, known for his roles in films like The Godfather II, Alien and Cool Hand Luke, has died of natural causes at the age of 91. The Kentucky-born star had a career which spanned more than six decades, appearing in dozens of films, including 1984's Paris, Texas and Repo Man.

Among other facts, Stanton was the last surviving cast member of the “Gunsmoke’ TV episode “The Cabin” (S03E24), which aired on February 22, 1958. Patricia Barry, who also starred in this episode, died last year at age 93. If you see this episode, you realize how great TV shows could be. The show’s writer, John Meston, previously worked at CBS’s program practices department. The guys there gave him a pass on this episode, which really has a grim view on life in the Old West. Stanton plays “Alvy” in this episode, a low IQ killer partnered with Claude Akins’s homicidal criminal. Stanton does a great job here, as usual.

The Twin Peaks revival is becoming quite the kiss of death for its actors. Guess that what happens when they dare to get old.

I remember when he played the proprietor of that island shop in a color episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" titled "Howard's New Life" - Howard Sprague decides to move to a small Caribbean island after watching a television travelogue. As usual, Harry was outstanding. He will be missed. RIP.

Excellent in "Paris, Texas". At times almost a silent film performance.
