Description
George Perry discusses his book, “James Dean.” He begins by explaining that the book is a biography of the actor, James Dean. In the work, Perry explores the early history of Dean using various interviews, including several with Dean’s cousin and executor, his drama teacher, and childhood pastor in Fairmount, Indiana. He also discusses the book’s previously unpublished photos of Dean that were drawn from his family’s personal collection. Perry explains that in addition to his focus on Dean’s childhood, the book also examines his film career. He discusses Dean’s films, including “Rebel Without a Cause,” "East of Eden, ‘ and “Giant.” The book includes a filmography, time line, a listing of Dean’s stage and television appearances, and a select bibliography.
