Introduction by Dennis Hopper. For the first time in their history, the Warner Brothers Archives have allowed access to their extraordinary James Dean collection. It is almost unbelievable that, more than three decades after Dean's tragic death in 1955, there should emerge intact, so rich and extensive a treasury of unpublished photographs. No star has spoken more poignantly and more powerfully than Dean to the spirit of rebelliousness and independence. Cut down in the prime of his life, his solitary and troubled persona continues to haunt and move us still. James Dean: Behind the Scene gives a unique and subtly revealing portrait of the difficult actor. This selection from the hundreds of photographs taken on the sets of East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant makes a brilliant collage showing how, in many ways, Dean's screen and private personalities were both disturbingly and charmingly alike. And, also for the first time in print, here are photographs taken on the set by Dean himself. In addition, directly from the desks of Jack Warner, Dean's producer, Elia Kazan and Nick Ray, two of his directors, and many of the other famous studio personnel come original memos, telegrams, letters and press releases relating the pleasure and pain of working with such a tempestuous man. From the first discovery of Dean's talent to Elizabeth Taylor's heartbreaking reaction to his death, these original documents have never before been published. Pictorial blue end-papers. This is the first UK edition. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 223 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Dust Jacket un-clipped.
