Tributes have been pouring in for Harry Dean Stanton, who died yesterday at 91 after a six-decade career that saw him steal scenes in movies as varied as “Pretty in Pink,” “Repo Man,” and “The Godfather Part II.” Stanton left behind a huge number of friends and colleagues, many of whom have taken to social media to honor the late performer.
Harry Dean Stanton had the best line in CHRISTINE: “I’m selling’ this shithole and buyin’ a condo.” Rest in peace, HD. You were great.

Harry Dean Stanton was the definition of cool. On Alpha Dog, he wouldn’t leave a room w/o saying, “Love ya. Mean it.” Such a great guy. RIP
