Possibly the most infuriating career of any director ever... Not counting the porn films that he did, he directed one of the greatest first mainstream films of any director in history, putting him in the same league as guys like Welles, Romero, Lynch, Kasdan, Lumet, and Jonze. And he did Salem's Lot and Poltergeist...and then, except perhaps for the pilot episode of Nowhere Man, nothing truly worthy for over most of his career, abysmal junk like Crocodile, Djinn, The Mangler, and his horrid contributions to Masters of Horror. He will forever be regarded as one of the greats, at least between 1974 and 1985.

Didn't realize he had directed the miniseries Salems' Lot. I remember watching it as a little girl. I didn't read the book until a few years later. The book really scared me combined with my memories of the movie. RIP Tobe.

The book and mini-series are both excellent.

Tobe Hooper, gone but never forgotten.

Sad news, but not unexpected. HDS played a great "everyman" and was in a ton of great films.

Some memories:

Seeing the original "Alien" sometime in the '80's on VHS tape. Creepy as he$$, and my favorite characters were HDS & Yaphet Kotto.

Seeing "Paris, Texas" for the first time in college (circa 1993) during a film class. That film is sublime, and one of my favorites of the '80's. I saw this on Blu a while back and it was even better than I remembered.

Seeing "Pretty in Pink" for the first time in the 200X's (on DVD). It took me forever to finally see the film, and one of my favorite roles was HDS as Molly Ringwald's father. He wasn't in the movie much, but I found his scenes very significant. He obviously cared for his daughter, even though he had been having a difficult time ever since his wife left the family years before. The scene when MR had the conversation with HDS about her mother was quite poignant. Very deep for an '80's John Hughes teen film.

In Hollywood's world where fathers seemingly get bashed mercilessly, Jack Walsh definitely stands out as a brighter spot. Sure, he's not terribly good at being a provider, but it's clear to see he nonetheless genuinely cares for his child, which elevates him above so many other screen fathers who are shown to be better off financially. Stanton's career is as noted, filled with lots of other great performances--certainly, as said above, a great turn in Alien being a prime example. He will of course be missed.

My wife was watching Pretty In Pink yesterday and before I went off to bed I had a quick browse online just to be confronted with the sad news about Harry Dean Stanton's sad passing and when I told her she was like "bloody hell I was just watching one of his movies as well" I think she was surprised actually when I told her he was now 91 years of age!

Great actor and he had a good innings,at 91 that's not bad going!

He was one of the greatest character actors of all time. He made every one of his appearances memorable, like those that he did for David Lynch. Gone but never forgotten.

So true, Crash! I am finishing up Twin Peaks:The Return. I have one last episode to watch. HDS is such a good man in this. And my other most memorable part was in Pretty in Pink. I am glad he lived a long and prosperous life, and had many great parts.

And Twin Peaks: The Return was brilliant. David Lynch collaborates with all the best people, including HDS.

Terrible news! Petty was way too young @ 66 to pass. Very sad.

I first became a TP fan in the late '80's, not long after "Full Moon Fever" hit stores. There were a lot of singles from that album, but "Free Fallin'" was probably my favorite. Though I had never been to CA when I first heard the song, the mention of several land-marks/areas made me really long to visit the area, and the song itself was very poignant as well.

Being a fan of this album led me to his previous albums with The Heartbreakers, as well as to the great music videos he came out with in the '80's. "Don't Come 'Round here no more" was an extremely trippy song, and the video - with the bizarre Alice in Wonderland imagery - gave an added dimension to the music. Well-done.

I've noticed that actors who worked on the same film passed away this year. Here are the connections.

Alien: John Hurt and Harry Dean Stanton
Red Dawn: Stanton and Powers Boothe
Tombstone: Boothe and Bill Paxton

Paper Moon is a wonderful film, aTomiK. Peter Bogdanovich was a heckuva great director in his early films.
