Happy Birthday, James Dean

Yesterday, 80 years ago, a legend was born – James Byron Dean.  With only three  major films under his belt, the young actor died on September 30, 1955, on his way to a race.

I celebrated by watching all three Dean movies and baking a cake for the star who would have turned 80 yesterday.  Call me crazy, but I’m in love with the man.  At age eight I had already visited where Dean had died, and hope soon to make it to Indiana to visit his grave.
