The face of a generation: Sell James Dean memorabilia with RR
Why sell James Dean memorabilia? The American Film Institute ranked James Dean the 18th best male movie star of Golden Age Hollywood. Remembered as a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, “Rebel Without a Cause” (1955), Dean made his indelible mark portraying troubled teenagers – Jim Stark in that film, Cal Trask in “East of Eden” (1955) and surly ranch hand Jett Rink in “Giant” (1956).
Far from the rebellious teen he became famous for portraying, James Dean grew up with Quaker relatives, was a stellar student academically and athletically, and attended college. He was the first actor to receive a posthumous Academy Award nomination for Best Actor, and remains the only actor to have had two posthumous acting nominations.
RR Auction has featured several items relating to the short, incandescent career of James Dean, including:
- Autographed promo photo from “Rebel,” sold for $20,724
- Pastel portrait of Dean, signed by artist and actor, sold for $17,334
- Check from his time frequenting NYC bar 54th Street Tavern, sold for $15,462
- Signed photo of a shirtless Dean, sold for $13,045
