Happy Birthday: James Dean

James Byron Dean would have been 80 years old today! I wonder what his life would have been like if he didn't get killed in that car crash when he was only 24 years old? I bet he would have ended up being a director, which would have been pretty cool. It's amazing to me that he only starred in three major films, yet he made such an enormous impression on his audience that he's still remembered today. My James Dean movie is 'East of Eden.' No one could have played Cal Trask better than Jimmy Dean!
