^^^Yes, a very nice tribute to Mr. Stanton.  Thanks for sharing.  Coincidentally, Stanton is the name on the one next to the "Unknown" marker where Blondie and Tuco locate the gold at the finale of The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. 

Both markers can be seen in this image from the movie.

This appears to be a more recent image but I am unsure if they are the same ones as those in the film.

Harry Dean Stanton has died at the age of 91.

A nice tribute to Stanton in today's New York Times:

... Mr. Stanton seems authentic. Time and again, this sense of genuineness served as a kind of guarantee, proof that he was offering us what seemed like truth rather than something manufactured and plastic, something like Hollywood. Mr. Stanton studied acting, including with Martin Landau who had studied with Lee Strasberg and knew the strength of screen stealth. Mr. Landau once said that “how a character hides his feelings tells us who he is.” Whether Mr. Stanton absorbed this observation into his methodology or just followed his own inclinations, he often did his finest work by tunneling into moments rather than inflating them.

As the years tugged at Mr. Stanton’s face, pulling down the corners of his mouth and further hollowing out his cheeks, his face became a fantastic landscape. Mr. Wenders understood its power beautifully. When Mr. Stanton first appears in “Paris, Texas,” Travis looks as emptied out and stunned as you would expect of a man tramping in the desert with too little water. Gradually, though, as the story opens up, Mr. Stanton fills Travis with tremors of feeling and fugitive smiles. By the end, this shadow has become a man who is as substantial as the rocky land through which he once staggered and, much like Mr. Stanton himself, a kind of monument.

My bet is it's going to be a great film. Despite those things rookies no Joel cox non actors I firmly believe it will be a good movie. I think it's cool that he's using the real life heroes in the film. How many movies do that. It's cool to do something different outside the box.

Yeah, I agree... it's great that Clint regularly does something different outside the norm.  If this was your typical Hollywood movie, there would be at least a couple of big stars commanding the screen.

I'm also curious if Clint will use IMAX cameras to film most of the movie like he did with Sully.

Here's some more pics from Alaska.  So, we're on a 60 passenger ship, much smaller than regular cruise ships, and the reason I wanted to go on this type of ship was for photographing whales. I had seen the humpbacks in Hawaii in January, and left feeling really discouraged that I hadn't gotten a good opportunity to photograph the whales. So, I followed them to Alaska where they migrate in the summer. I have to say that although I got better photos this time, I still feel discouraged because I didn't get a magnificent shot. And that's now my life goal. I'm probably going to keep following humpbacks around the world until I get a shot that I'm satisfied with. And I like that goal a lot, because I'll see some fantastic things trying to achieve it.

Anyway, here's the best shot I got:

Not bad, but not stunning. But, I did get to watch two whales swimming together and diving for about an hour, and that was breathtaking.

This is the same dive, just a half a second later:

Here's a whale diving, in sequence:

First you see them arch their back (and after watching them a bit, you start to get excited when you see this because you know you're about to get a tail sighting):

They lift their tail:

The back of their tail flips up:

The underside of their tail sinks into the water after them:

Here's a shot of the two together. I believe it's a mother and her calf.

One more shot:

And just to break up the monotony, another shot of the sun trying to fight its way through the clouds.

We'd see a lot more whales later this night at dusk, but I don't think I got any decent photos -- it was too dark, and they were far away, but I'll post something later anyway even if it's not that good. ;)

Great album from 1990 and much better than Donny Osmond's output around the same time.

Stanton appeared in one Eastwood film, Kelly's Heroes, as well as a few episodes of Rawhide.

He also appeared in the unauthorized expository prologue to A Fistful of Dollars that was shown on US TV in 1975, and can be seen (if you really must) as an extra on some DVD/BluRay versions of the film. Or on YouTube:
