Come back to the five and dime

Next week, September 30, is the 55th anniversary of James Dean's death. I'm a massive James Dean fan. As a teen I watched his movies over and over – East of Eden still remains my favourite film.

Besides being incredibly gorgeous, he was phenomenally talented and has influenced style even 50 years later. Look at those pictures, the first one could be from a modern fashion mag.

While watching his movies I often wonder about the amazing catalogue of movies he would have created had he lived.

Anyway, I'm using this anniversary as an excuse to post these pictures. Enjoy!


  1. Wow, 65 years! I can't believe it's been that long. Amazing...

  2. Oops just realised I can't count (this will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me) – it's actually 55 years!

  3. I've never really watch any of his movies, that I I remember anyway. Might have to go down to the local dvd store and hire some.

  4. He's the original poster boy for badness that others can only emulate. The closest anyone 'recent' has come to him, in my book, was River Phoenix and Heath Ledger. I know, the irony is not lost on me. What is it with bad boys so full of raw emotion and early death? Too sad. x


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
