    Description

    James Dean "To Sal" Autograph and Photo. Sal Mineo enjoyed great success as a teen idol during the late '50s, shooting to fame opposite James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause in 1955. Mineo was later reunited with Dean in Giant, although only in a few scenes. Sadly, he too would die under tragic circumstances, stabbed to death by a mugger at age 37. This autograph album page is inscribed "To Sal, my best" and signed by Dean in pencil. It is in Fine condition with some tearing along the left edge and moderate uniform tanning around the other edges, none of which affects the signature. It has been matted and framed along with a b&w 8" x 10" photo of Dean and Mineo in Rebel to an overall size of 16" x 20". From the James Dean Museum archive.
