- Leben und Karriere
1984 bekam Stanton eine seiner wenigen Hauptrollen unter der Regie von Wim Wenders in dessen Film Paris, Texas. Er spielte darin einen Mann mit Gedächtnisverlust, der nach Jahren wieder mit seiner Familie zusammenkommt. Auch ansonsten spielte er meistens eigenbrötlerische, geheimnisvolle Figuren. Der einflussreiche US-Filmkritiker Roger Ebert formulierte die \\"Stanton-Walsh-Regel\\", nach der ein Film, in dem Harry Dean Stanton oder M. Emmet Walsh eine Nebenrolle spielen, nicht völlig schlecht sein kann.
In meist kurzen, aber prägnanten Nebenrollen fiel er in bekannten Filmen auf, so etwa in Ridley Scotts Science-Fiction-Film Alien (1979), Martin Scorseses Filmadaption von Nikos Kazantzakis Die letzte Versuchung Christi (1988) oder in Frank Darabonts Stephen-King-Verfilmung The Green Mile (1999). Stanton drehte mehrfach mit David Lynch, zum ersten Mal in Wild at Heart Die Geschichte von Sailor und Lula (1990), wo er einen Privatdetektiv spielte. In Lynchs Fernsehserie Twin Peaks trat er 1990 und 1991 sowie nochmals in der Neuauflage 2017 als schrulliger Besitzer eines Wohnwagenplatzes in Erscheinung. Stanton arbeitete praktisch bis zu seinem Tod als Schauspieler. In John Carroll Lynchs Regiedebüt Lucky (2017) spielte er seine letzte Hauptrolle als hochbetagter Atheist, der sich mit seiner Sterblichkeit auseinandersetzen muss.
Neben der Schauspielerei war Stanton ein begeisterter Sänger und Gitarrist. Die Harry Dean Stanton Band spielte mehr als ein Jahrzehnt zusammen. Sie hatte mit einer Mischung aus Country, Pop, Jazz, Tex-Mex und Mariachi-Musik regelmäßig Auftritte in Los Angeles. In einigen seiner Filme, beispielsweise in The Rose, durfte Stanton sein musikalisches Talent auch unter Beweis stellen.
Harry Dean Stanton, der nie verheiratet war, starb am 15. September 2017 im Alter von 91 Jahren im Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
