This season of Watching Classic Movies Podcast I'm going to be interviewing people from the places I write about in my new book, The Classic Film Fan USA Travel Guide: Over 500 Attractions for Road Trips and Online Exploration.
My first guest of the season is Dorothy Schultz, curator of the James Dean Museum.
We had a great talk about this thriving tribute to an actor who burned bright in his short life and left an enduring legacy. The museum is home to the largest collection of Dean artifacts and attracts visitors from around the world. It is also deeply loved and supported by the surrounding community, which includes Dean’s family. Dorothy shared stories about the museum and the annual festival it hosts, tips about how to make the most of a visit, and what Dean means to her as an artist and influential figure.
We talked a lot about the famous photos Dennis Stock took of James Dean. There's a great gallery of them here.
