Tenderness of Heart

Lois Smith and James Dean co-starred in East of Eden. It was Lois Smith’s first film role. Some of you might not realize this but you KNOW Lois Smith! She’s still acting today, most recently as Sookie’s grandma Adele Stackhouse on True Blood. I always think of her in Twister and How To Make An American Quilt.

They all met such tragic ends…it makes seeing this test footage so sad.

Fabulous.

When I see photos of James Dean like this one with Ursula Andress, I realize that he must have been one goofy, nerdy mother trucker.  Don’t you think?

Today would have been James Dean’s 80th birthday.

Don’t you think if he had lived, he’d still have a camera in his hands?

I do.
