Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday” (1953).
On this day, 59 years ago, we lost James Dean.
At just 24, he lost his life in a car accident.
Despite his early death, he remains one of the most important and one most recognisable faces of pop culture.
James Dean lives on in his movies and in the hearts of his fans.
"Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today."
James Byron Dean 8th Feb 1931 - 30th September 1955
This picture kills me.
Natalie said her favorite scene in Rebel Without a Cause was one she shared with James Dean that was cut from the film.
“It was in the car. I was waiting for him and he comes up and we talk to each other. There was a section of the scene where I imply that I’ve sort of been around, that I’m not really pure.
I say to him, ‘Do you think that’s bad?’ And he says ‘No, I just think it’s lonely. It’s the loneliest time.’
I thought it was a wonderful line—right on the cutting room floor.”
Started university today, it was so surreal - but great! :)
