Harry Dean Stanton stole more scenes than most other actors even appeared in. Over his six-decade career, the late, great actor managed the improbable feat of being as recognizable from his highbrow fare (like “Paris, Texas”) as he was from his high-school movie (“Pretty in Pink”) — and that was just in the mid-‘80s.
Stanton also worked with David Lynch, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, John Carpenter, and Monte Hellman, among many others; he left his indelible mark on all their movies, as he did on those who watched them. Here are some of our favorites.
“Right.” Harry Dean Stanton doesn’t say much else in “Alien,” but he doesn’t need to. Along with Yaphet Kotto’s Parker, his Brett provides some much-needed levity aboard the Uscss Nostromo — it may be true that in space no one can hear you scream, »

Harry Dean Stanton, the legendary character actor and offbeat leading man who starred in Repo Man, Paris, Texas, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Big Love in a career that spanned over seven decades, has died at the age of 91.
Stanton died of natural causes in Los Angeles, Variety reports, with TMZ adding that the actor died peacefully Friday afternoon at the city's Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
When Audrey Horne, one of the most popular “Twin Peaks” characters finally returned for the Showtime revival, fans were left with more questions than before. The scenes between Audrey (Sherilyn Fenn) and a man named Charlie (Clark Middleton) were baffling, claustrophobic and antagonistic, at the very least.
In the scenes that spanned four episodes, Audrey seemed obsessed with going to the Roadhouse to find her lover named Billy, but her husband Charlie preferred to stay in and finish his paperwork, since it’s late and he’s already sleepy. The bickering usually alternated between Audrey insulting Charlie and urging him to put on his coat in order to go out to the Roadhouse.

Three new releases captured the three top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ended May 28 as the traditional start-of-summer flurry of new DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases continues.
Twentieth Century Fox’s “Logan” easily snagged the No. 1 spot on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The 10th installment in the Marvel superhero “X-Men” franchise was billed as the last appearance of Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart in their roles as Wolverine and Professor X, and grossed $226 million at the domestic box office.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean movies have not been easy films to make....
As Michael Bolton once belted out: “This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow.” The Pirates Of The Caribbean film was a surprise sleeper hit in 2003, astounding the higher-ups at Disney who had long been sceptical of how a pirate movie, based on a ride at Disneyland, would appeal to audiences.
Off the back of this success, the sequels only got more ambitious and expensive in scale, with their use of practical effects and convoluted character dynamics serving to complicate the adventure format, with mixed results. It shouldn't shock you then, to hear that each of the movies released so far had some serious behind-the-scenes battles to make them shipshape.
