Abstract:

What new is there to say about James Dean? Plenty. Most of what we know about Dean grows out of the cultlike status he achieved for the three films he made during the last eighteen months of his life. Author Val Holley delves much further into Dean's early life and training on stage and in television. Using research that is astounding in its detail and frequently letting his sources speak in their own voices, he paints a portrait of an immensely talented actor, devoted to his craft, whose natural self-destructive streak Hollywood exacerbated - with fatal results.
