    I know how Abra feels!!! (similar situation myself!)

    I love all of his movies! I enjoy watching him in Rebel, but that is my least favorite of the three .. I also enjoy watching Natalie in that movie too .. a lot of people in this thread said Giant is their least favorite, but I kind of like him in that movie! I love that movie!! Such a shame we lost him at such a young age! I would have loved to see what else he could have done, then there would be more opportunities to look at his gorgeous face!!

    There's a theory that the mechanic, Rolf, was driving the Porsche when they hit Turnupseed's car. Turnupseed was turning into Jimmy's lane when they hit.

    He most likely would of, if that happened to day..I read that the ambulance was run out of the funeral home..make you think at how competent they were.

    I personally dont agree that Rolf was driving

    I agree CMS there is a site of Gilmores I came across on the web, sorry not sure where it is now just google him and it sounded like fiction... all his tawdry tales about James Dean did!

    Does anyone know how long it took after the accident for the Ambulance to arrive after the crash?

    I watched Rebel Without a Cause last night, but I wanted to read my book about Howard Hughes at the same time. So I put the DVD on to where it would play the commentary that some of the older movies have. Anyway - learned that the Masion in Rebel Without A Cause actually belonged to J Paul Getty. This is the same mansion that was used in Sunset Boulevard. It was getting ready to be torn down and had been vacant for some time - The scene where they are playing around and in the pool is the same one that William Holden died in after Norma Desmond shot him. Thought it was kinda cool.

    well now its the "harbor" building and is the home of lausd district interim program.that area is called hancock park and whats wierd to me is why would some wealthy guy want a mansion on the corner of a busy street,i mean wilshire even in the early 20s was a busy street.anyways the building is on wilshire and crenshaw,actully where crenshaw ends if your heading north.

    Whoa, I need to watch it with the commentary...I had no idea this was "the mansion".

    Does anyone know the address of the place in the opening scene with Jimmy and the toy monkey?? Scott- if you're here- I know you recreated it on the site but I'll be damned if I can find an addy for it anywhere!!

    When you get a chance, check this guys You Tube stuff out: http://www.youtube.com/user/salomevaquero

    He has Jimmy's recording of a jam session he did with some pals with Jimmy on bongos (very good player, BTW), as well as videos shot by Jimmy (one with a Malia Nurmi in a dimly lit room) and rare behind the scenes videos, and a very good (short) interview with Jimmy himself on the set of 'Rebel' where he talks about his take on "fame" and acting.

    Very cool stuff!

    Yes he did they got along well, I think he felt secure in trusting telling private things to her knowing she would keep it to herself. And so far she's done just that. I would too, out of respect.

    Yes, she goes into detail about the sex she had with Jimmy in her book. She keeps using the term "we exploded" as I remember, LOL.....

    Yeah she goes into some..detail lol

    It's a good book tho was nice to read about James from someone who actually knew him before stardom and the whole 'rebel' persona came about. I read it all the way through til 4 am I haveto admit. I couldn't put it down.

    I watched a documentry a about a year ago.. shes very evasive as to why they split.. growing apart was HER reason

    I'm not calling her a fake.. but its easy to write a book about someone who can't defend what you say..afterall shes out to sell her story ,she has to spice it up a abit..

    Thats song is great

    here are the lyrics

    [SIZE=3][/SIZE]THE Eagles - James Dean James Dean, James Dean
    I know just what you mean
    James Dean, you said it all so clean
    And I know my life would look allright
    If I could see it on the silver screen

    You were the lowdown rebel if there ever was
    Even if you had no cause
    James Dean, you said it all so clean
    And I know my life would look all right
    If I could see it on the silver screen

    We'll talk about a low-down bad refrigerator,
    You were just too cool for school
    Sock hop, soda pop, basketball and auto shop,
    The only thing that got you off was breakin' all the rules
    James Dean, James Dean
    So hungry and so lean
    James Dean, you said it all so clean
    And I know my life would look all right
    If I could see it on the silver screen

    Little James Dean, up on the screen
    Wond'rin' who he might be
    Along came a Spyder and picked up a rider
    And took him down the road to eternity

    James Dean, James Dean, you bought it sight unseen

    You were too fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye
    You were to fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye
    Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye, bye.

    I hated that song and never got the idea of the Eagles getting James Dean. Not from that song anyways.

    The melody was awful and the lyrics banal!

    I thought they bastardised his name ! Sorry !

    Are those purported death photographs of Dean taken at the sight of his crash really true? Were they ever verified by anyone or destroyed?

    Not enough detail for me! It was a good book though and I felt as though they really connected and I will forever believe she was the most important lady in his life. Call me crazy, but I'm not a big fan of Pier Angeli.

    Anyone read Bill Bast's book? I'm curious about how well "into" Jimmy he gets. I really love the movie he scripted and I understand it was taken from his "rated PG" version of this book he penned in the 60's.

  38. #188
    The photos from the crash site well..they are supposed to be real
    taken by sanforth roth..
    of course the ones that he took of his body have never surfaced..

    Rare photo of Jimmy & Marlon

    circa 1954: American actors Marlon Brandon, James Dean (1931 - 1955) and an unidentified woman are pushed in a wheeled wicker chair by two men on the set of director Henry Koster's film 'Desiree'

    I believe the unknown woman in the photo above is Jean Simmons....Brando's co-star in Desiree. This photo also appears in Brando's autobiography.

    There are only a few death pictures of Jimmy being carrying into the abulance on the gurney. Supposedly, there were some pictures taken of James Dean at the scene with him in his car dead. But again, supposedly those pictures got destroyed. Who knows? His death was tragic so young and so much promise. Also the fact that back then they found him guilty for causing the accident for speeding. Today, it has been challenged or even proven that he was not speeding and it was not his fault.

    Anyway, as you guys can see by name handle I'm a huge Jimmy fan.
    Cheers to you Mrs. James Dean!

    The writing is faint on this one you need to enlarge it to see the writing, they also have a hat worn by Dean.

    There was another nice one I came across it was on the front page of the website but I can't remember the website it was.

    I'm one of the posters who said he was over rated. Its not that I'm a "non-fan," nor am I dissing him or cutting him down. I think he had a terrific talent and was extremely good looking. I just don't think that he did enough to make him the god that some people think him to be. I think he definately had the capability of being one of the greats, unfortunately, he died too young to achieve anything that would make him worthy, in my opinion, of such admiration.

    I totally understand what you are saying. I feel the same way about about other celebs who died so young and are immortalized. However, the fact that he reached this cultural icon like status without being well known and with only 3 films, I think it's amazing.

    Don't get me wrong, I do wonder what would have become of him had he lived. Would we be talking about him right now? Who knows. For me, the admiration I have for him that had so much talent and it shines in the 3 movies he made. Also, in many ways he was different than the typical movie stars from that era. I think he represents the rebellious youth of his era. The more I read about his life and how he grew up I could relate in some ways regardless of how long ago it was that he had lived. Again, I cannot put it into words. I think the fascination with most people regarding James Dean is simply wondering, what could have been?

    I think its amazing too the status he achieved after only a few films. It would have been fantastic to see what he could have done had he lived longer. Some people are just born to be in movies, and I think Dean was one of those people. Those who knew him said he had the "it" factor and just a pull about himself that made people just want to look at him and be around him. I think its cool that people are fascinated enough by him to keep his legacy alive for so long.
