Item 20 - James Dean Catalog 407 (Apr 2013)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $19,567.20 (includes buyer's premium)


American actor (1931–1955) best known for his star turns in three 1950s screen classics: East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, and Giant. His untimely death in a high-speed car crash came to represent the very embodiment of the ‘live fast, die young’ philosophy—and elevated him to the status of a legend that remains unique in the annals of Hollywood. Exceptional vintage glossy 8 x 10 Warner Bros 1955 publicity photo of Dean in a cable-knit sweater for Rebel Without A Cause, by Floyd McCarty, signed and inscribed in fountain pen “To Almira, with my sincere best wishes, James Dean.” In fine condition, with some scattered light surface marks and impressions (some to Dean’s face but visible only at an angle), otherwise a pristine overall presentation with an unbelievably bold, well-contrasted signature. Dean is quite scarce in any form, particularly in signed photos connected to his short Hollywood career. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
