Harry would have turned 93 years old today. He was the son of a tobacco farmer, and something tells me he smoked himself....😯🚬
Have a Heavenly Birthday Harry! Miss you! 😇👼

Wow! Thanks Rob - greatly appreciated! I love this guy, and his choice of films. It's such a shame that he's no longer with us. 😿

Hey, Rob! Could you please add 'Christine' and 'Inland Empire' to Harry's credits?
He's smashing in both of them!
Last film I watched with Harry was repo man, which he still at 60 looked over 5ft 7. Very dependable actor, made acting look easy.

How tall would his Christine co star Keith Gordon be Rob? There doesn't look much between them in that film but Alexandra paul looked quite a lot taller than him and not sure she wore heels in the film
In 5ft 7-8 zone might be possible for Keith.

Gone to the great big eternal tobacconist in the sky. RIP Harry, you were so good in so many roles. Yes, you were 5'8" as a young-un, under 5'7 when you inhaled that last drag at 91.

Just as I acquire another of his films, I find out that Harry has died - on September 15th at age 91.
Another of our precious actors departs this mortal coil.
See you in the next world, Big Man.
RIP Harry xxx

Might want to add Stanton to the "Classic Hollywood Actors" category

Rob, could you add Cool Hand Luke, Cisco Pike, Straight Time, Escape from New York, Pretty in Pink and TV in Big Love to his credits? Hard to pick since he has a talent to pop up in tiny roles to lend some character to some great big films.

probably 5'6 now.

I'm sure he was honest with 5'8", but that's likely his morning measurement. In other words, he's 5'7".

Harry looks more 140 lbs. Too skinny. Being that he's 5'7" and very slim and very small framed. On a funny note, he kinda looked like Al Pacino in the face in his younger days.

Dustin Hoffman and him in Straight Time were a few inches off. I think Mr. Hoffman claims 5'6" even though he looks 5'5' ish but Mr. Stanton looked an 1-2 inches taller...Dunno if I buy this 5'8" thing...maybe 5'7 ish.

I always thought he was near 6 ft., or more, probably because he is so very thin, therefore looks taller - an optical illusion.

Surprised Frank2 hasn't added anything on this guy. I'm interested in what he thinks, assuming he met him. Personally, I always thought Stanton would've been shorter, like in the 5'6" range.
[Editor Rob: I'm sure frank2 mentioned he saw him looking short, maybe on another thread.]

He looked tall in Paris, Texas.
It's amazing how much taller a thin frame can make you look.
