1931- 1955. James Byron Dean. His name is instantly linked to rebellion. Perhaps this is why his legend has endured for 45 years. He has been idolized by thousands as a symbol of eternal youth. He was a farm boy who inspired many, and his legend will survive forever.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH!!
"An actor must interpret life,
and in order to do so must be willing to accept
all the experiences life has to offer.
In fact, he must seek out more of life than life puts at his feet.
In the short span of his lifetime,
an actor must learn all there is to know,
experience all there is to experience,
or approach that state as closely as possible.
He must be superhuman in his efforts to store away
in the core of his subconscious everything that
he might be called upon to use in the expression of his art."
Jimmy, like many other young actors of his time, took advantage of a new medium called television. He starred in many live productions such as: I'm A Fool, Hill Number One, The Bells of Cockaigne, and The Unlighted Road.
