One of my favourite actors.
He was 91 years old.

May he rest in peace.

He is in David Lynch's The Straight Story for only about 5 minutes at the end, but it was worth the wait!

Recently saw him (again) as Brain ("Don't call me Harold") in Escape From New York.

Oh no! We were just discussing this in a film thread earlier this week, Cato. What a great scene.

I will always remember Harry as the father in Pretty in Pink (sorry, I grew up in the 80s) but mostly from this scene in Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas...



If you haven't seen this film, watch it. But this particular scene is beautiful.
