It's no longer an argument this well-worn and well-known fact: James Dean is a pervasive cultural influence. Be it the rebelious, misunderstood teenager who finds solice in Jim Stark's loneliness and desire to be loved and understood, or the flame-like haircut, or the bongo-playing bohemian, James Dean has risen above the '50's actor-stereotype and has become an icon of not just of a generation, but of a culture. Listed here is a list of links, some James Dean specific, some not, embody both his history and his influence in the world we know as the World Wide Web.
