Eartha Kitt teaching James Dean how to dance, early 1950s Photo by Dennis Stock. “He was like my brother. He had something in him that he didn’t understand. He wanted to learn from me how to move on the stage the way I do, so I taught him how to control his body and how to let the words physically carry you from this point to that point. I was in a play and he’d just done his first film so we were both becoming known at that time. It was a good time.” -Eartha Kitt
