James Dean

James Dean was born today (8th February) in 1931.

After moving to New York in 1952 he eventually got a part in 'See The Jaguar' on Broadway. In 1955 he gained overnight success in the film 'East of Eden'. He made only two more films, 'Rebel Without Cause', also in 1955, and 'Giant', released the following year, before his death in a car crash.

In just over a year he had become the personification of contemporary American youth, 'restless, purposeless and deprived of security and direction.'
