Boulevard of Broken Dreams : He died at twenty-four on a California highway, when he was Hollywood's emerging superstar. Now at last a biography, illustrated throughout with 67 revealing photographs, tells the whole story of James Dean - the story that the studios he made countless millions for desperately wanted to cover up. It is the story of the all-American Indiana farm boy who was anything but. The story of the fiercely ambitious actor who used his beauty to give his genius a chance. The story of the parts he fought for and the films he made. The story of the men as well as the women in his life. It is the finest, fairest, and most unflinching close-up we have of the figure who still haunts our dreams. 312 pages.
