Pic of the Day: “East of Eden” (1955) revisited

Since today is the anniversary of the death of James Dean in 1955, I thought it fitting that our pic for today be another shot from East of Eden (1955). This one isn’t a candid from the set like the last one, but is actually from the film.

Ray Dennis Steckler once said, “[Tim] and James Dean used to pal around a lot… He said James Dean wasn’t from this planet anyway and just got called back early!” Tim recalled accompanying Dean on one of his notorious “Sunday drives” through the Salinas Valley in his little racing car. Upon their return, Tim declared, “I’m never getting in a car with him again.” And thank God he didn’t.
