This is the second piece of the “Identity” mini series. Like Marilyn, James Dean is identified as an iconic figure in American history, with good reason. Yet, past the bad-boy/care-free persona, good looks and money, he was rumored to have issues with mood swings and alcohol. Dean once said, “Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today,” a quote that one may say he lived by, right up to his tragic and fatal car accident.
