James Dean death anniversary

I couldn't let today go by without noting that it's the 50th anniversary of actor James Dean's death.

The first Dean film I saw was "Rebel Without a Cause." It was one of the titles I was required to view for a film class I was taking as part of my undergraduate studies.

From the moment James Dean appeared on the screen, I couldn't take my eyes off him. I don't know what filmmakers mean when they say a particular actor or actress has the "it" quality, but whatever "it" is, James Dean had.

That must be why Weekend America did a segment on James Dean's death.
