It's funny because James Dean has always been a picture of popped collar and brooding quiffs in my mind. Seeing him follow Ertha Kitt's lead (granted, still brooding) has just shifted the permanent image I have of him in my head.
I found this picture once and thought it was awesome. You don't see much about the Lee Meriwether Catwoman, but I thought she was way better than Julie Newmar or Ertha Kitt.
