All About James Dean Perhaps you have heard the name on T.V. or in Hollywood historic documentaries. You may have also heard the name because your mom and dad (or maybe your grandparents) bring up the name to you as the definition of a quintessential actor. Or maybe your familiar with his work and you simply want to know more the man behind the myth. When talking about or researching James Dean all kinds of information and rumors float around. That's mainly because his life was a roller-coaster ride. What's more, because he went too soon, not a lot of the questions can be answered with definitiveness. The story all started in 1931 in Indiana. Young James Dean has all the makings of an orphan; with a father always out because of work and a mother who died when he is just 9 years old. Still, that didn't prevent him from being a relative success, excelling in high school athletic fields such as baseball and basketball, artistic fields such as drama, and academic fields such as forensics. But it's during his stay in UCLA (he transferred from nearby Santa Monica College), where the beginnings of a legend is made. When you talk about James Dean, the first thing that you know is that he is an explosive talent; perhaps the closest thing to a pure talent that's possible. Three of his movies, East of Eden, Giant, and Rebel without a Cause, are among the most critically acclaimed movies of their time. With his powerful yet fragile, accurate yet emotional acting style, he perfectly encapsulates the confused and rebellious youth with his roles. But outside the bright lights, Dean is a man of many passions. He is especially passionate with bullfighting and motorsports. However, it is his love for cars and motorsports that would lead him to his very early demise: a road accident would leave everyone asking themselves what might have been. James Dean seems to be the perfect subject for a movie or book. A talented, multifaceted guy that has a complex and fragile character, so much is not understood about this person so far. But a movie about James Dean, a movie that was kept under wraps for 15 years, sheds a different light to the man behind the legend. Created by the only Hollywood producer that was able to read Dean's personal diary, this film will be available in September for a limited time. From the only producer to have read Jame's Dean Diary.
