What do you think Jimmy would've accomplished if he didn't died so soon considering his incredible talent/potential ?
Anonymous

He was always interested in directing and I think he would have been GREAT at that. He also really wanted to go further with his racing, so I am sure he would have kept of with that for some time. But he was the kind of person who would try new things constantly (and sometimes get bored and not finish them, but you know.) so who knows what else he would have found to be great at. So yes, for sure more racing and onto directing. :)

first of all congratulation for your amazing blog! Of course I knew James Dean for a long time but I wasn't aware until now how incredible he was in the few films he made. I saw one month ago "rebel" again and I was completly hooked by his performance. How sad that he left us as such a young age, he had so much great things to accomplish personaly and professionaly. His next picture would have been "somebody up there likes me" with pier angeli, strangely Newman got the part and became famous!

Thanks so much!
I also started looking more into him after I saw “Rebel…” for the first time. That guy, I tell ya.

And yes, Paul Newman took over the roll as Rocky after Dean passed. Crazy to think of Pier and James Dean in a movie together, right?? Paul Newman did a good job, but I can’t help but wonder what Jimmy would have brought to the film.

Is it true that Nathalie Wood fell in love with Jimmy during the shooting of Rebel and she was only talking about him to others ?

Well actually Natalie Wood was dating Dennis Hopper during the beginning of filming and also had an affair with director Nick Ray. She was very, very fond of Jimmy but that’s all their relationship really was.

behind the scenes

"In the beginning, I was naturally very interested in Jimmy as an actor and as a person. I’d never ever met him and he stayed very much to himself - and was very, very distant. So, I thought, okay, I will respect that and his privacy. So, I stayed very distant, but he was the only one I did [stay away from] because everybody else were like teddy bears. You know and I love teddy bears. So, it took a while for us to finally kind of share thoughts. But he didn’t allow that, if I would just say even ‘Good Morning,’ he’d say, ‘Hi,’ and sort of the roll of the eyes and so on. But no real, nothing in the way of communication. So finally I was taking pictures as I usually do of everybody and having a wonderful time. And so he finally came up to me one day and he said, ‘You don’t take any pictures of me.’ And I said, ‘Well, I wouldn’t think of it. You obviously enjoy being by yourself because you never come around and mingle with us, especially me. I tried very hard to respect people’s wishes as best I can. I wouldn’t dream of bothering you in any way, shape, or form.’ He said, ‘Well, that’s all right. If you want to take some pictures of me, I don’t mind.’ I said, ‘That would be super. I’d love that.’ So, that was the beginning, that was the first step, and the steps came more regularly - and more often." -Jane Withers

 ”Marlon may have felt that way about Jimmy, but it wouldn’t have kept him away. Marlon doesn’t stay away from people who need help—because Marlon knows what it’s like to need help. He’s one of the most emotionally naked people I’ve ever met, and the most willing to reach out to help other people.” 

Stewart Stern responds to Marlon Brando’s early thoughts on James Dean.
