Kelly gave no further details on the cause. "Harry Dean Stanton. My heart is broken, but at 91...a life well lived", while Mark Hamill wrote: 'Sad to say goodbye to the incomparable Harry Dean Stanton- so profoundly authentic in every role he inhabited'. He appeared with longtime friend Jack Nicholson in "The Missouri Breaks".
"I had to decide if I wanted to be a singer or an actor".
Stanton was also nearly always cast as a crook, a codger, an eccentric or a loser.
Throughout his 60-year career, Stanton starred in around 200 films and television shows.
Other roles include "Pretty In Pink", "Repo Man" and "The Last Temptation of Christ". "I loved directing him and I will miss him". "Martin Scorsese, John Huston, David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock". Ultimately, Stanton decided it was "too much work" to be a leading man.
The Tribeca Film Festival also shared photos of the actor through the years and recalled a late critic's praise. His breakout role came three decades after he began working, in the 1984 movie Paris, Texas, directed by Wim Wenders and written by Sam Shepard, who died this July.
Meanwhile, Stanton was an elegant musical performer with an angelic tenor voice.
He comes back and finds her in a Houston peep show, where he delivers a 10-minute monologue through a one-way mirror. "If I never did another film after this, I'd be happy".
"Repo Man", discharged that same year, turned into another mark film: Stanton featured as the world-fatigued manager of an auto repossession firm who educates Estevez in the traps of the unsafe exchange.
His legend would only grow.
