James Dean and Jim Backus on the set of Rebel Without a Cause.
oh I love that one too, I have it hanging on my wall!
yes, here ya go! (and I agree, I love that photo!)
he really didn’t style his hair (or put in any effort with his appearance lol) unless he was filming. his hair was naturally kind of messy like that?
because Kazan said when they made East of Eden that he didn’t style Jimmy’s hair because he wanted it to look ‘untamed’ like the character of Cal. in Rebel his hair was styled, but I read that they had to constantly hair spray his hair between takes because it naturally kept sticking up in the back
so yeahhhh in a lot of the photos of Jimmy slumping around NYC and in Fairmount, taken by Dennis Stock, he normally didn’t do his hair (Stock said Jimmy often showed up late, messy and unshaven, lol)
hahah sure, I’ll post it :)

there are a lot of quotes I love, my favorite changes depending on my mental state, lol. right now my favorite is: "I really don’t know who I am, but it really doesn’t matter."
and it’s impossible for me to pick a favorite picture too! but this one by Sanford Roth is one of many favorites :)
