    James Dean "Jett Rink" tuxedo pants from Giant. (Warner Bros., 1956) Custom made black wool tuxedo pants with zipper front closure, 2-slash front pockets, 2-buttoned back pockets, black grosgrain ribbon down the outer seam of each leg, with 4-breach buttons at front waistband and 2-at back. Retaining internal Warner Bros bias label handwritten, "5/25/55, 403, Jas. Dean, 2 Pc Tail Outfit, Dbles, 2-8103". Costumes designed by Marjorie Best, who received an Oscar nomination for her efforts. James Dean as "Jett Rink" wears these pants with full tuxedo when Rock Hudson as "Bick Benedict" challenges the drunken Jett to a fight before demolishing his wine cellar. Giant was the last of James Dean's three films, and while he died in a tragic car crash before the film's release, it earned the young star his second and final Academy Award nomination for acting. George Stevens did win the 1957 Oscar for "Best Director". Exhibiting a practically undetectable moth hole beside the grosgrain ribbon at the knee of the left leg. These tuxedo pants remain in vintage very fine condition.
