My Top Ten Harry Dean Stanton Movies

Happy Birthday to Harry Dean Stanton, who turns 90 today! Wow – I can’t believe he’s 90. Such a great actor who has been in so many awesome films. Stanton has quite of an impressive résumé & doesn’t seem to get the credit he deserves.

As always, I’m ranking these according to how much I like the movie as opposed to the character (if going by character, Seven Psychopaths would be much higher – loved his character in that). So, counting down to my favorite movie (a movie that NOTHING tops), here are My Top Ten Harry Dean Stanton Movies:

10. The Straight Story

9. Avengers Assemble

8. Seven Psychopaths

7. Repo Man

6. Cool Hand Luke

5. Pretty In Pink

4. The Green Mile

3. The Godfather: Part II

2. Escape From New York

1. Alien

Honorable Mentions:
The Last Temptation Of Christ
Dream A Little Dream
The Mighty
Christine
Red Dawn

Okay – he’s been in a few other big movies that I haven’t seen. I have yet to see…:
Paris, Texas
Wild At Heart
Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas

**Updated March 12th 2017 to add The Last Temptation Of Christ. It doesn’t make the Top Ten.

  1. Ever since I saw that documentary on “That guy, who was in that thing”, I now look at actors differently. This is one of those actors who fall in this category for me. When I start to see his movie rolls strung together in pictures I realize I see him everywhere but I usually have not clue who he is and I don’t really recognize him until it is pointed out ot me.

    • Yeah, Harry Dean Stanton is a bit of a “hey, it’s that guy” but a little more famous than that. I love unknown actors/actresses whose faces I know but usually can’t name. I become a little obsessed with some “hey, it’s that guy” actors! : )
