James Byron Dean; Feb. 8th, 1931 - Sept. 30th, 1955

James Dean was more than a phenomenon or even a legend. He was far more than a cinematic genius who could act his balls off. He was simply the greatest screen experience of all time. The fact that he was cut off in his prime is unfortunate but irrelevant. The three films he left us with stand as their own monument. He remains indestructible. He accomplished only three roles, but he ruined the careers of a hundred other aspiring actors who tried to follow him. - Sammy Davis Jr.

When I was in acting school in New York, years ago, there was a saying that if Marlon Brando changed the way people acted, then James Dean changed the way people lived. He was the greatest actor who ever lived. He was simply a genius. - Martin Sheen

He was a human rocket who burned so fiercely and brightly that he blinded people. Life wasn’t big enough to contain him. If there is a hereafter, James Dean will appreciate the infinity of eternity. - Pegot Waring
