  •   brailliantart I was drawn to MM + JD because they seemed so unique & eerily beautiful together. They have a certain quality, an odd atmosphere that is so appealing. We all identify with their vulnerability & I wanted to explore these two souls with a new perspective. 2d

  •   marilynmsparkle Lovely edit Marilyn & James Dean met to discuss doing a film called "Human Bondage" however Dean died before it could be made. They were never photographed together . Shelly Winters who was Marilyn's room mate at the time asked her if she was attracted to him ? She said he was good looking but too young & dangerous 5h
  •   brailliantart @marilynmsparkle that's fascinating! I suppose it's true what they say, art imitates life; life imitates art. Thanks for sharing. 3h

jamesdeanxo1 Stevens made this trail out to the fence post, then walked back, and said to Jimmy, "Do you think you could follow that line?" Dean replied, "Yeah, I think I can." The camera started to roll. Jimmy walked over to the first rock, picked it up and tossed it away. Stevens yelled cut but Jimmy ignored him--he kept walking, picking up every one of those pieces of paper. Then he came back and dropped them right in the director's lap.Dean stared at Stevens and said, "Look, if I need marks, I'll put down my own marks. All you need to do is to tell me what you want me to do, like a director is supposed to. Then I'll do it. Otherwise, I’m going to get my ass on a plane and go back to California."
Stevens reacted real calm. He said, "Well, okay, let's just shoot it." The camera began rolling again. But this time Jimmy Dean was pissed off. He reared back, and began strutting over to this windmill instead of heading toward the fence. I realized Dean was improvising, but the director wasn't angry. He told the cameraman, "Stay on him, Bill. Stay with him." George Stevens was excited by Dean's reaction, even though none of this was in the script. Dean climbed up on the windmill, crossed his legs, and sat up there. All the time, Stevens kept telling the cameraman, "Hold on to him. Keep on him. You got him, haven't you? That's perfect, perfect. Oh, man." #jamesdean #jettrink #georgestevens #giant #oldhollywood #legend #hollywood #hollywoodicon #hollywoodidol #hollywoodgreats #hollywoodlegend #1955 #1950s
