There are 1 comment on the story from Dec 21, 2013, titled Get to know 'Repo Man'-star Harry Dean Stanton (kinda) in 'Partly Fiction': Indie & art.... In it, reports that:

Director Sophie Huber spends a lot of time trying to get the "Paris, Texas" star to open up, even enlisting famous friends like David Lynch and Kris Kristofferson to come and shoot the bull, but Stanton mainly expresses himself through song, belting out gravelly renditions of old tunes that mean something to him.

The last time I saw Paris... Texas, that is, was in 1970 when I visited my Grand-Mama Betty, who lived at 28 11th Street NW near the intersection of Bonham and 11th across from the Gladiola Flour Company warehouse and a block north of Union Station. I loved that old house. Now it's gone, but the concrete steps that led up to the forked walkway on the lawn are still there. If you drive by, you;ll see them.

Anyway, when the movie "Paris, Texas" came out, I rented it, thinking I'd get some glimpses of Paris, I was disappointed to say the least. None of the characters ever got to Paris, Texas! All we saw was some snapshot of a vacant lot!

When I wrote my alternate-worlds science fiction / fantasy novel, "J-9," set in 1956, with numerous visits to Paris, Texas throughout the story, I made sure the readers would get to see Paris, Texas, including a few buildings that no longer exist! The e-novel is illustrated with over 300 color paintings, including a painting of Grand-Mama Betty's House at 28 11th NW and the Gladiola Flour Company warehouse. Also, the two-car garage with the little upstairs apartment at the end of the driveway along the east side of Aunt Marguerite's house near 3rd and Graham is depicted in a few paintings.

You can see those paintings and more samples of art from the e-novel on the "J-9's 1956 Paris, Texas" page of my website . Except for the "Order" page, the website is finished. The e-novel "J-9" (in six parts) will be on sale soon, probably in February.
