Please scroll down and down. I made the pictures bigger this year, because of the importance of the 50th Anniversary of James Dean’s death.
Professor Wes Gehring signs another copy of his James Dean book. The Indiana Historical Society commissioned him to write this for their Hoosier Biography series. He has also written books on Carole Lombard and Red Skelton for the series. He’s an associate media editor for USA Today and writes the column Reel World for it. He has 22 books under his belt and 8 more non-fiction books.
Mark Curzon flew in from Derbyshire, England. His is a long and interesting story. He’s been into Dean since he was five years old and his Dad played Rebel Without a Cause on their VCR/TV. His son is named Alexander James Dean Curzon.
Mark works in a hotel. He saved his money for years to come to Fairmount, with this 50th anniversary year his goal. Early this September, Mark’s mother died, and Mark gave all his Fairmount money to his dad for funeral expenses. He didn’t regret helping out, but he knew Fairmount was not to be, for him.
Then someone who lives in Derbyshire (and used to live in Indianapolis) knew Mark’s situation and gave him a plane ticket and a bit of traveling money. He sent Mark to us in Fairmount. Mark had no idea of where he could stay, without money for a motel. Fortunately, he met met Lookalike contestant and actor Nick Parsons who took Mark to Nick’s grandmother’s house for home cooking and rest. .
A dream came true for Mark, thanks to his friend in Derbyshire. We just loved him, and we want him and his James Dean tattoos back here every year.
Bob Socci from New York buys, sells and trades Movie Memorabilia. He also plays a zombie in Poultrygeist, an upcoming movie. Contact him at email@example.com He’s entertaining to hang out with. His zombie photo is on the new James Dean scrapbook page
