James Dean Daily

Giant took a year to cut and edit. Steven’s called it “a terrific embroidery job,” and as he watched the rushes, Jimmy seemed to him like a defiant spirit: “I spent six hours today with Jimmy dean, as I have most of the days in these two past months. He is always up there on the projection-room screen in front of me, challenging me not to like any part of him in the picture. And there is no part of Jimmy I don’t like, no part of him that hasn’t always the attraction that goes with complete naturalness. Maybe it is the way he sidles next to someone, chin hugging his chest, then squints up out of the corner of his eye, mumbling a greeting. Or maybe the way he can run a boyish giggle right through his words or, without losing an iota of expression, violate all the dramatic precepts and persistently present only his back to the camera.”
