Film, Vintage


i’ve watched this advert a multitude of times, but decided to share anyway for those of you who might not have seen it yet – it’s been all over the sa blogosphere (for good reason). it’s an ad for the south african investment firm, allan gray. read the background story & making of over at king james and pay close attention when the dust clears at the end of the ad, that’s actual james dean right there : )

“he devoured life, swallowing large chunks of it whole”

yoh – what a dish, right?

    So basically had James Dean lived he would have gone the way of Paul Newman?

    minus the salad dressing

    in all seriousness, the parallels are probably mostly coincidental – he loved racing cars & he wanted to direct one day etc etc. i guess you can’t help but compare stars from that era though. better to go the paul newman way than the marlon brando way?
