 twister123 asked:
So I've read over and over that James got mediocre results, just interested to know if you'd stumbled upon what he got?

you mean how he did in school? I’ve read the same, that he was basically a C student. in 11th grade one of his report cards read:

English - D
US History - C
Geometry - C+
Art - A

he excelled at his creative classes (art, speech, drama) but when it came to academics he didn’t really apply himself.

I knew James Dean as a friend and as a student. He was a disrupter of norms, a bender of rules, a disquieter of calm. - Roy Schatt

"In the beginning, I was naturally very interested in Jimmy as an actor and as a person. I’d never ever met him and he stayed very much to himself - and was very, very distant. So, I thought, okay, I will respect that and his privacy. So, I stayed very distant, but he was the only one I did [stay away from] because everybody else were like teddy bears. You know and I love teddy bears. So, it took a while for us to finally kind of share thoughts. But he didn’t allow that, if I would just say even ‘Good Morning,’ he’d say, ‘Hi,’ and sort of the roll of the eyes and so on. But no real, nothing in the way of communication. So finally I was taking pictures as I usually do of everybody and having a wonderful time. And so he finally came up to me one day and he said, ‘You don’t take any pictures of me.’ And I said, ‘Well, I wouldn’t think of it. You obviously enjoy being by yourself because you never come around and mingle with us, especially me. I tried very hard to respect people’s wishes as best I can. I wouldn’t dream of bothering you in any way, shape, or form.’ He said, ‘Well, that’s all right. If you want to take some pictures of me, I don’t mind.’ I said, ‘That would be super. I’d love that.’ So, that was the beginning, that was the first step, and the steps came more regularly - and more often." -Jane Withers

To shed some light on the color vs. black and white comment, the reason they had to make it in color was because they accidentally started filming in CinemaScope without reading the contract fully. Any film shot in CinemaScope had to be released in color, they already had shot for 2 days or so and had to go back and reshoot with color in mind. They used a process called "WarnerColor" which screwed with hues of colors but was cheaper than technicolor.

Ah yes, I read that they had to specially dye Jim’s jeans that dark blue color because they came across too green on film. thanks!
