Körhinta (Fábri Zoltán, 1956)


I remember discussing The Little Prince, which was as sacred to Jimmy as a bible was to other people. He believed in that book, I can’t tell you… It’s the story of this special little guy who comes from another planet and is extraordinarily compelling, and has a view of life that is absolutely beautiful, and of relationships that is very touching. And then a time comes when he has to go away, and he allows the snake to bite him and he goes back to his little planet… Well, what have we here, what have we here… Whose story is that? - Bill Bast

The First Photograph of a Human Being

"This photograph of Boulevard du Temple in Paris was made in 1838 by Louis Daguerre, the brilliant guy who invented the daguerreotype process of photography.

Aside from its distinction of being a super early photograph, it’s also the first photograph to ever include a human being.

Because the image required an exposure time of over ten minutes, all the people, carriages, and other moving things disappear from the scene. However, in the bottom left hand corner is a man who just so happened to stay somewhat still during the shot — he was having his shoes shined.”

James Byron Dean; Feb. 8th, 1931 - Sept. 30th, 1955

James Dean was more than a phenomenon or even a legend. He was far more than a cinematic genius who could act his balls off. He was simply the greatest screen experience of all time. The fact that he was cut off in his prime is unfortunate but irrelevant. The three films he left us with stand as their own monument. He remains indestructible. He accomplished only three roles, but he ruined the careers of a hundred other aspiring actors who tried to follow him. - Sammy Davis Jr.

When I was in acting school in New York, years ago, there was a saying that if Marlon Brando changed the way people acted, then James Dean changed the way people lived. He was the greatest actor who ever lived. He was simply a genius. - Martin Sheen

He was a human rocket who burned so fiercely and brightly that he blinded people. Life wasn’t big enough to contain him. If there is a hereafter, James Dean will appreciate the infinity of eternity. - Pegot Waring
