The Walt Disney Corporation talking to itself.
I have come to the conclusion that although we all knew Jimmy, each of us knew a different person, one who was a mass of contradictions and who presented a unique persona to each of us. – Joe Hyams
He was sensitive and there were elements of surprise in his personality. He wasn’t volcanic or dynamic, but he had a subtle energy and an intangible injured quality. – Marlon Brando
I liken it to a comet that fell through the sky and everybody still talks about it. They say, ‘Ah, remember the night when you saw that shooting star? – Julie Harris
James Dean was the perfect embodiment of an eternal struggle. It might be innocence struggling with experience, youth with age or man with his image. But in every aspect it was a mirror to a generation of rebels without a cause. – Andy Warhol

Happy Birthday, James Byron Dean (February 8th, 1931-September 30, 1955)
There has never been anyone one quite like him, one of the most intellectually fascinating actors of our time. The size of his talent is something that is incomparable to any other actor from his time. And even if he had only made 3 films, they stand for something…something absolutely legendary. He was different, and people who are different will always get more attention, whether it’s good or bad. He had a lot of insecurities about himself, and so do a lot of teenagers and young adults. We all see bits of ourselves in him and we relate to him. And that’s what people who feel lost really need - someone to relate to. Jimmy was the pioneer of the 1950’s, he brought with him a style and an attitude that shook America during this generation.
"So few things blaze. So little is beautiful. Our world doesn’t seem equipped to contain its brilliance too long. Ecstasy is only recognizable when one has experienced pain. Beauty only exists when set against ugliness. Peace is not appreciated without war ahead of it. How we wish that life could support only the good. But it vanishes when its opposite no longer exists as a setting. It is a white marble on unmelting snow. And Jimmy stands clear and unique in a world where much is synthetic and dishonest and drab. He came and rearranged our molecules."
