This is Judy. She’s my friend.
It was great working with her. She has pep, vitality, and all the attributes of a powerful performer. I hope that I can work with her in the near future.- James Dean on Natalie Wood

hey! same here, I had no idea there were so many other people who still loved James Dean until I made a tumblr! I ~discovered~ Dean when I was in college and one of my teachers suggested I watch “Rebel Without a Cause” for inspiration for a project I was working on. I loved the film so much and was fascinated by Dean, so I watched his other two films right away. then when I started to read and learn about his life, I was so inspired by him. I was at a really low point in my life at that time… but reading about his passion for life, experience new things, and expressing himself artistically, it really helped to pick me up and inspire me to live my life too. so yeah, he helped me so much, so I feel like the least I can do is help to spread the Dean love with other fans. :)

submission: Where would I find some glasses like Jimmy’s? I’ll worry about the glass itself. But frames?
you can actually buy the same brand that Jimmy had, by Tart Optical. the only thing is that they are quite expensive… but if you look around you can find some similar looking ones, like on Warby Parker.
hahah oh man, thank you… as you can tell his
face existence just makes me kind of irrational

hey! yes, I agree with everything you said! I always have to remind myself that Eden was his first starring role in a film, because his performance is just so amazing (plus he was nominated for an Oscar what whaaaaat) I think the 50’s showed a big shift in film, especially for the teenagers, and Dean was a really big part of that. and like you said, the story itself is timeless because it’s really about relationships and good vs evil, and thats something people have and will always struggle with. and even though the film is set in the early 1900’s Dean still looks so cool and modern. ughh I love it <3 oh and thank you very much!
