James Dean photographed by Dennis Stock in his NYC apartment.
I’m sorry for not blogging as much as I used to, but college is sincerely consuming all of my free time. I’m on midterms this week, so wish me luck :S and thanks for putting up with me.
love you guys, and imsososorry again,
if im on tumblr more than usual that means i have a lot of stuff i need to be doing and im trying to avoid doing it
I like being sent legit anon asks it’s like being interviewed by a fan
The James Dean/Mary Astor “affair” between takes of the TV rehearsal for “The Thief.”
James Dean and Phil Stern photographed by each other on Dean’s Triumph motorcycle, May 1955.
”I barely remember that it was shot. It’s the one of my sitting on Jimmy’s cycle. I’d been photographing Jimmy and suddenly during the take, Jimmy grabbed the camera off my neck and commanded: ‘Hey, Phil! I want a picture of you on my bike.’ So he shot it.”
Phil’s grandchildren all know the amazing lore that surrounds James Dean. “Boy, are they impressed,” Phil says. “Seeing Granddad sitting on that bike!”
clarkbogarts said: Do you happen to have a picture of Jimmy with his hair unstyled? I've been searching for it a while and I'm not even sure one exists. Thank you :)
he really didn’t style his hair (or put in any effort with his appearance lol) unless he was filming. his hair was naturally kind of messy like that?
because Kazan said when they made East of Eden that he didn’t style Jimmy’s hair because he wanted it to look ‘untamed’ like the character of Cal. in Rebel his hair was styled, but I read that they had to constantly hair spray his hair between takes because it naturally kept sticking up in the back
so yeahhhh in a lot of the photos of Jimmy slumping around NYC and in Fairmount, taken by Dennis Stock, he normally didn’t do his hair (Stock said Jimmy often showed up late, messy and unshaven, lol)
