American Legends is proud to present The James Dean Scrapbook -- a new and exciting type of biography: "a docography." This book relates the life of James Dean through rare and unusual documents and original interviews with those who knew the late actor.  The book contains never before published letters from Rogers Brackett (the TV and stage director whom Dean lived with in New York and Hollywood), Herman Shumlin (who directed Dean on Broadway), and many others. Also, included are facsimiles of rare documents such as James Dean's Selective Service records (showing that he was rejected by the military during the Korean War), Dean's New York City Public Library card, racing programs from events Jimmy took part in, a telephone bill, the lease to the eccentric house the actor rented in Los Angeles--and many other items (even the typed notes taken by the coroner after Dean's tragic crash in September 1955).

This 110 page, large format paperbound book is available only through American Legends--and, in fact, is the first book to be published by a Web site. The book contains items that have been collected over a twenty-five year period by outstanding James Dean scholars like Warren Beath and is bound to become a collector's item itself.
