James Dean, an actor who only made three films, became a cultural icon for the post WWII adolescents of his time. He symbolized the brooding unrest that simmered inside this generation. His good looks gained him an eager following ready to see more. Tragically, his life was ended at the age of 24 when he crashed his Porsche, Little Bastard, just before the release of Rebel Without a Cause. This cemented the legend of James Dean which still remains.

There is a supposed curse attached to Dean's car Little Bastard. See the following link for details: http://jalopnik.com/5113390/the-curse-of-james-deans-little-bastard
