YMMV / James Dean

  • Harsher in Hindsight: He starred in a road saftey ad shortly before he died. As investigations showed post-crash, Dean was in fact the responsible driver in his fatal crash, driving on the right side of the road and within speed limits, falling victim to the very kind of poor driving he was warning against.
  • Ho Yay: With Paul Newman and Marlon Brando.
  • Too Cool to Live: The guy died in his prime. God rest his soul.
  • What Could Have Been: Dean wanted to quit acting and go into directing.
