Rebel with James Dean
Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die
- Famous for his roles in East of Eden (1955), Rebel Without a Cause (1955) and Giant (1956), Dean had one of the most spectacularly brief careers of any screen star. In just over a year he became a widely admired screen idol, and the personification of the restless American youth of the mid 1950s
- Dean’s promising career came to an abrupt end when, at the age of 24, he was killed in a tragic car crash in California. In 2005, the intersection of Highways 41 and 46 were named in honor of the star.
- He received two posthumous Oscar® nominations for his first and last screen
performances, East of Eden (1955) and Giant (1956)
- Dean was issued with a speeding ticket in Kern County only 2 hours and 15 minutes before the crash that took his life
- Born James Byron Dean on February 8, 1931 in Marion, IN
- Died on September 30, 1955 in Cholame, CA
