omg james dean = LOVE.
Okay, so I've never actually seen anything with him in it, but I love love love him. Natalie Wood is good too. I'm definitely putting this on my 'to see' list right now!

He's just....PERFECTION. Definitely watch this one...and then East of Eden when you have the time, then Giant. It's sad how small his body of work is D: But he's brilliant in all of them.

I'll reserve East Of Eden as soon as I get this one.
I heard he was very good.
I've always wanted to go to Fairmount. I've been considering doing a fan fiction based around him/the town, but I wanted to watch him in action first.

I go to the James Dean Festival in Fairmount every year. It's a really small town, sort of 'quaint', but they have a bunch of antique stores & a clothing store with 50s style fashions & an EPIC museum of Dean stuff (and another, less EPIC one featuring James Dean & Garfield the cat lol). I've visited his grave, the cemetary is always packed; it's a crazy scene, women kissing it & guys leaving cigarettes. They say the population quadruples during the weekend of the festival, what with all the 'pilgrims' (they really call them that, people come from as far away as Japan), motorcycle show, antique car show, etc.

I NEED to go there. I have to go there. I might not go so far as to kiss the grave, but I so would be taking a ton of pictures.

In the one museum, they have the outfit he wore in Rebel in the police station scenes & a pair of jeans he wore in Giant. I was sort of shocked @ how slight he had to have been to fit in those clothes! /random

LOL thanks, bb! ♥

He's amazing, this movie is just LOVELOVELOVELOVE.

(Random James Dean-ish story: I have one of the life-size cardboard cut-outs of him in the red Rebel jacket. One weekend when I came home from college, my brother had put one of my game-worn jerseys on him as a joke. I was all "OMG JAMES DEAN + A HOCKEY JERSEY, THAT'S MY ~*~IDEAL~*~ MAN!!!")

OMG that is amazing! :D Please, please, please tell me you have a picture of that somewhere?! I'd love to see it hahaha

And! Where on earth did you get the cut out from?! I'd probably die♥

I do have a pic; I'll have to find it & scan it in. It used to hang on my bulletin board @ college with a sticky note that said "Amy's Dream Man" lolol.

I got it @ the James Dean museum in Fairmount. I go to the James Dean Festival they have in Fairmount every year :)

Okay, I definately need to see this picture when you scan it. I'll probably die from the awesome. And lmao "Amy's Dream Man"! You're too much, bb♥

OMG that sounds so friggin cool!!! Too bad it's hella far from me ):

At the festival, they have a look-alike contest. Sadly, none of the winners I've seen have looked *REMOTELY* like James Dean. Slicking back your hair & wearing a red jacket does not make you ~The Rebel~, boys. And it puts me in a bad mood, all those posers lololol. Cause believe me, if they did dig up one that looked like him, let's just say he'd coming up missing BUT I WOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT, WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME THAT WAY?!?!?! ♥

Let me just say right now, you. are. my. favorite. I know you'd have nothing to do with that hahahaha ;P You'd HAVE to share him with me if you want me to keep your little secret lmaooo

I need to find away to get myself out there for this look alike contest, just so I can mock the guys :P

LOLOLOLOL ♥ Okay, it's a deal. OMG WE NEED LIKE TWIN LOOK-ALIKES!!!!

My mom & I sit there and do snarky commentary during the contest. We're all like "Oh, yeah, he looks like James Dean....if you're looking @ him from 100 feet away & are blind in one eye and wearing an eye patch over the other!" They should totes have James Franco come in for it. He played James Dean in that one TNT movie, it's epic, watch it if you haven't, he's amaaaazing in the role & is about the closest in looks I've ever seen.

Twin look alikes?! Christmas present anyone?! I'll start the search ;P

LMFAO!! Your commentary. I could so see my and my mom doing something exactly like that. We can be quite the sass masters when necessary.

AND OMG JAMES FRANCO. Don't even get me started on him. I love that man to the end of the earth and back. And I think him and James Dean really do look so much alike. But I've never seen the movie *embarrassed face*. I need to get out and rent it.

You totally need to see it. He won a Golden Globe for it, it's brilliant. And they do his hair so he looks even more Dean-ish and his mannerisms are perfect. He really nailed it. I'm soooooo excited, JF is coming back to General Hospital for a bit!! WOOOOO!!!
