    Ticket from "A Star is Born" and Pier Angeli Signature Cut. James Dean's romance with actress Pier Angeli was one of his few with various starlets that was not made up by the Warner Bros. PR department. Reportedly, Dean was very much in love with Pier and they planned to marry, but her mother blocked the union because Dean wasn't Catholic, arranging for her daughter a disastrous, short-lived marriage to Vic Damone instead. (Before she committed suicide in 1971, Pier wrote that Dean was the only man she had ever really loved.) On September 29, 1954, Dean and Pier attended the world premiere of A Star is Born in Hollywood. This is his ticket and souvenir program from that night, along with a signature sample from Pier. All are in Excellent condition with minimal wear. From the James Dean Museum archive.
