A Face Everyone Knows, A Name Most Folks Forget

It’s a curse felt by character actors.  Everyone knows their faces.  No one knows their names.   Such is the fate of Kentucky-born actor Harry Dean Stanton.  His movies, which include “Alien,” “The Green Mile” and “Repo Man” are the subject of a film festival this weekend in Lexington.  Also this weekend a stage adaptation of “The Graduate” is performed by Studio Players.   And, there’s news that a Broadway super hit will finally be performed in Lexington.  Offering previews is Rich Copley, who’s an arts and cultural reporter for the Lexington Herald Leader.
