blogger Marie. 20. bookworm. movie buff. i found this little composite on her blog. dean's legend only grows. i listened to a documentary the other night on hulu.com while working on my 'la strada' series. it was made in 1957, shortly after james dean had died. the narrator was unbelievably bad! his voice was exactly like what you would hear in a warning film in health class. still, facts on the actor are ever interesting. so many people in his life concluded that this great talent had a huge need for love that was only matched by his drive to push love away.
interestingly, director robert altman's first choice for the narrator was marlon brando.
