Do Mess with Paris, Texas

Congratulations to actor Harry Dean Stanton on reaching his 90th birthday today.

Stanton's pairing with Natassja Kinski in 1984's Paris, Texas seemed implausible then and more so now. The young, attractive Kinski played Stanton's estranged wife despite Stanton's character lacking gorgeous wife attracting traits--looks, youth, money, status, humor, power, warmth, purpose, similarity, trustworthiness, BS skills, resource altruism, fatherly characteristics, dark triad attributes. Almost nothing except proximity.
