“It took me a while to accustom myself to the Texas way of life, but I  regard the weeks as particularly well spent. In my desire to learn more  about the character Jett Rink, I learned much about Texas and Texans.  I’ve gotten to like the state and the people so much I’m apt to talk  like a proud Texan even after Giant is completed.” —James Dean

“His  face corresponds to a physiologically dominant type,blond hair, regular  features. Further, the mobility of his expressions admirably translates  the double nature of the adolescent face, still hesitating between  childhood’s melancholy and the mask of the adult. The photogenic quality  of this face, even more than that of Marlon Brando, is rich with all  the in-determination of an ageless age, alternating scowls with  astonishment, disarmed candor and playfulness with sudden hardness,  resolution and rigors with collapse, chin on chest, unexpectedly  smiling, fluttering his eyelashes, mingling ostentation and reserve,  naive and gauche, i.e., always sincere, the face of James Dean is an  ever changing landscape in which can be discerned the contradictions,  uncertainties, and enthusiasm of the adolescent soul. It is  understandable that this face should have become the insignia, that it  is already imitated, especially in its most readily imitable features:  hair and glance.” - Edgar Morin
