Director John Huston once said of him, "He is not just a star, he is a constellation. The audience will come to see whatever character he portrays."

Stacy began his professional film career in 1968 with The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and has since played a wide variety of characters in over fifty films. In 1972, Stacy was proud to have worked with legendary actor/director John Huston. Huston directed Fat City and The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean.

Remembering Susan Tyrrell

Susan Tyrell was a phenomenon. I adored her. I first became acquainted
with her when she was doing Rachel Owen’s Futz, off-broadway in the late sixties.

We did two films together, Fat City, where we played lovers, and a few
years later, The Killer Inside Me, where she portrayed a hooker who
became the victim of a psychopathic sheriff, which I played.

I loved her whiskey voice, always reeking of soul and sweetness. She
was like the Billie Holliday of the dispossessed. She sang the blues
with every word she spoke, and the unique colors she brought to the
behavior of the characters she played always embraced a vivid portrait
of a highly sensual woman. Sexy and vulnerable, not unlike the
qualities of a battered Marilyn Monroe. Susu also had a wonderful
sense of humor and an infectious laugh.

She was irresistible.

Her bravery and positivity in the face of the disease that took her
legs was monumental. She was such an inspiration to me.
Also, unbeknownst to many, she was a great artist. Her drawings and
paintings are brilliant and unique.

I miss her terribly. She died too young. My thoughts and prayers
are with her and her family on this sad occasion.

Stacy Down South

Stacy’s in Alabama filming “Honeydripper”, written and directed by John Sayles (Lonestar, Sunshine State), co-starring Danny Glover, Charles Dutton, Albert Hall, and Mary Steenbergen. The story depicts the transition from the blues to rock and roll in 1950 rural Alabama. Due for release in 2007.

Sherriff Pugh loves Ty’s (Danny Glover) wife’s fried chicken and allows a punished field worker, Sonny, to come out of the cotton fields in order to join Ty’s band (Sonny’s a hot guitar player) at the Honeydripper, in exchange for Delilah’s fried chicken sandwiches. (The car, by the way, was part of the Eisenhower Administration Staff back in the Fifties!)
