“A lot of people have asked me about Pier Angeli. Well, I met her when she was making ’The Silver Chalice’ and I was about to begin ’Eden’. She is a rare girl. Unlike most Hollywood girls, she’s real and genuine. And, though she’s young, she has a rare insight in life. The only trouble is, she gets confused by listening to too many people”. James Dean. Jimmie and his great love, Pier Angeli, 1954.
