As you may have heard, Harry Dean Stanton died on Friday at age 91.

Back on Aug. 16, the Quad Cinema, nearby on 13th Street between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, had announced a retrospect of the actor's work scheduled for Sept 22 to Oct. 3.

Per the Quad:

Few actors are as recognizable in American movies as Harry Dean Stanton. The singularly mild-mannered face of the New Hollywood, his repertoire expands to dozens of appearances in beloved studio, cult, and independent movies, with only a handful of lead roles to his name.

In a career spanning more than 60 years, Stanton’s inimitable hangdog persona revealed a distinctive capacity for harebrained agitation and laconic, low-key melancholy that prove equally disarming. Stanton has worked with many cinema greats, from Carpenter to Wenders to Lynch. On the occasion of his starring role in Lucky (opening September 29) ... the Quad is proud to present a wide-ranging selection of his most memorable roles.

Screenings start on Friday, and include "Paris, Texas," "Repo Man," "Alien," "Escape From New York," "The Straight Story" and "Pretty in Pink," among many others.
