ugh i love james dean so much, watching him in east of eden was such an experience for me, so much potential and soo handsome.
He’s fascinating to watch. I like all 3 of his movies. And he was ahead of his time. And damn, he tagged some quality ass in his short life. LOL Pretty much everyone wanted to hit that–his directors, his costars. He definitely was a cutie.
When they were filming Giant, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson made a bet to see who could sleep with him first. Rock won and Elizabeth became one of James’ besties.
Rumor has it he dated Marlon Brando for a while and the relationship was pretty volatile. They even had a big public lover’s spat in the middle of a party. Now I gotta go read up on him some more. He had a very interesting life, just way too short. :’(
