Description

    White T-Shirt Worn by James Dean in "Rebel Without a Cause." A bit of Hollywood irony: in 1934, sales of men's undershirts plummeted when Clark Gable was seen barechested in It Happened One Night. Twenty-one years later, t-shirt sales soared after James Dean was seen wearing this one in Rebel Without a Cause. Such is the world of fashion. The shirt is in Excellent condition with mild discoloration due to age, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Claire Gaynor who obtained the shirt from famed make-up artist Gordon Bau. Mr. Bau was Dean's make-up man for all three films Dean made. Also included is a b&w 8" x 10" photo of Dean wearing the shirt while on set. From the James Dean Museum archive.
