James Dean photographed by Roy Schatt, 1954.


To Elizabeth Taylor, [George] Stevens seemed at times almost the stern father, feeling himself obliged to punish or restrain: "He had a kind of love for Jimmy Dean. It was curious to watch him. They’d meet head on and there’d be a terrible clash. Then when I was not on camera I would watch George watching Jimmy. George would smile, but he didn’t ever let Jimmy know that he was fond of him."

In regards to your response to someone's question I'm so happy that you also love Lucille Ball! From about the time I was 5 years old she's been one of my idol's as well so It's always really neat to hear about others who have liked Lucy since they were children as well :) Just wanted to share that with you! and keep up the great work on your blog! xo

I love this! Yes, since about 2nd grade I have loved her! As I grew older, I read more about her and man, she’s awesome. And yes, I think it’s great when I meet other fans, too!

Is Jimmy your biggest Idol/Inspiration ???
Anonymous

I think right now I would say so. However, since about 2nd grade and still today Lucille Ball has been a HUGE inspiration to me. They both have made such an impact on me, just in different ways…which I think is a good thing :)

What did James Dean bring and change in your life ? ? ?

You know, I think the main thing I’ve learned from him is to not be afraid of life! Get out there and try new things, and most importantly, meet and enjoy people. When I think of all the things he accomplished by the age of 24….most often times when he was low on money, even….I think that I’m not living up to even half of my potential. It’s okay to totally be yourself, and usually even just doing that will inspire someone else. :)
