2002 James Dean (Graphique de France) Wall Calendarby Cal 2002
James Dean moved boldly onto the Hollywood scene in the mid-1950's. Though he made only three films prior to his untimely death at 24, the young actor pushed against boundaries in drama, as well as in life. In doing so he became one of the most enduring objects of fascination in cinematic history. Dean's screen persona was complicated, introspective and rebellious. It proved disturbing to many a conventional movie patron, but instantly appealing to thousands of young people who discovered that his tumultuous character portrayals mirrored their own emotional complexities and growing dissatisfaction with the establishment. This defiant icon in jeans and a leather jacket spoke to an embryonic counterculture -- a generation on the brink of sociological transition. Captured in this stunning collection of black and white photographs is Dean's mysterious duality that still fires the imagination of fans worldwide.
