    James Dean and Others Giant Cast-Signed Paperback. Giant was the last of screen icon James Dean's three films as a leading actor, and earned him his second and last Academy Award nomination. Tragically, the young actor died in a car wreck shortly before production wrapped. An instant classic, it garnered ten Oscar nominations and one win, and was Warner Brothers' highest grossing film until Superman was released in 1978. This is a copy of the first paperback edition of Edna Ferber's novel, signed in ink by Dean on the interior front cover, as well as on some pages by Dean and fellow cast members Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Chill Wills, Dennis Hopper, Jane Withers, Robert Nichols, Fran Bennett, Charles Watts, Mary Ann Edwards, Monte Hale, Alexander Scourby, Felipe Turich, producer Henry Ginsberg, and dialogue coach Robert Hinkle. In Very Fine condition with some mild to moderate shelf wear and slightly loose hinges. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
