About the Book: Harry Dean Stanton (1926–2017) got his start in Hollywood in TV productions such as Zane Grey Theater and Gunsmoke. After a series of minor parts in forgettable westerns, he gradually began to get film roles that showcased his laid-back acting style, appearing in Cool Hand Luke(1967), Kelly’s Heroes (1970), The Godfather: Part II (1974), and Alien (1979). He became a headliner in the eighties―starring in Wim Wenders’s moving Paris, Texas (1984) and Alex Cox’s Repo Man (1984)―but it was his extraordinary skill as a character actor that established him as a revered cult figure and kept him in demand throughout his career. Joseph B. Atkins unwinds Stanton’s enigmatic persona in the first biography of the man Vanity Fair memorialized as “the philosopher poet of character acting.” Harry Dean Stanton is often remembered for his crowd-pleasing roles in movies like Pretty in Pink (1986) or Escape from New York (1981), but this impassioned biography illuminates the entirety of his incredible sixty-year career. Drawing on interviews with the actor’s friends, family, and colleagues, this much-needed book offers an unprecedented look at a beloved figure.
Please note that only Continental United States (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, and the territory of Puerto Rico) entrants are eligible.
