James Dean - what a huge talent. Jimmy left us way too soon. I have often wondered -had he lived what a huge line of work he would have. He is forever young. RIP Jimmy. : (
James Dean-most people think that his car accident was alchohol related. If you actually read the coroner's report, the cause was an embelism in his brain. The way I understood it was , he essentially had a clot in his body his whole life, it worked into his brain and he lost control of his car when it happened. Not a rebel without a cause. Just a rebel with health problems.
I've seen this picture so many times, but every time I see it, to me it always looks like he's taking a selfie. I know he's not, but my eyes always fail to see his forearm and go straight to his bicep where it looks like it's being cut off due to the selfie pose he seems to be doing. Once I see it, I can't unsee it. It's a great illusion.
James Dean. Class, style, presentation, look, attitude; this fellow had it all. A man of great time.
