connecting the dots
the relationship formed between the divine actress geraldine page and james dean began in the theatre at a time when dean threatened to quit the production and she fought to keep him in the play. it was in this play that director elia kazan found his lead for 'east of eden.' the rest is a too short history.
page eventually married actor rip torn. in the words of their daughter: "My mother never forgot about Jimmy - never," she says. "I believe they were artistic soul mates."
