09Nov. ’21 DEAN STOCKWELL R.I.P. Sorry to hear of the death of Dean Stockwell at the age of 85. My tribute to Dean from April this year https://viennasclassichollywood.com/2021/04/14/dean-stockwell-life-in-hollywood Related Posted by Vienna. Categories: Uncategorized. 7 Comments
Fine actor – will never forget him “Sons and Lovers” and “Long Day’s Journey Into Night”. Another gone from a more special time of movie-making than today’s form of the assembly line…
Sad news. I suspect many will remember him most from Quantum Leap and other later roles. Personally, I tend to think of some of his early stuff like Cattle Drive, Down to the Sea in Ships, Kim, Compulsion and Gun for a Coward.
Quite a career, films,stage and television.
A solid actor, even as a kid. I’m sorry that he will primarily be remembered for a very forgettable tv show.
I’m so lucky to have never seen the show that you and others have mentioned. By the late 50s-early 60s he’d become a fine actor, due largely I believe, to far better than average material even then.
I remember first seeing Dean Stockwell in the original Dune, then in Blue Velvet and Beverly Hills Cop 2. But it was The Twilight Zone’s A Quality Of Mercy and Alfred Hitchcock Present’s Annabel that originally earned my best appreciation for his unique signature as an actor. R.I.P., Dean.
The Twilight Zone episode is memorable.
