This Day in History:
James Dean Dies
in a Car Accident September 30, 1955 A racing enthusiast, James Dean
was killed on a stretch of California
highway when the Porsche Spyder he
was driving collided with another car. Of the three films Dean
made during his career,
at the time of his death only
'East of Eden' had been released. He was just 24 years old. With the release of
'Rebel Without a Cause'
a month later, Dean's
icon status was solidified. Dean's approach to
acting would influence
generations of actors that followed. He is buried in
Fairmont, ID, less than
a mile away from the farm
where he was raised by his aunt and uncle.
