james dean in spectacles "Movie Sunglasses & Spectacles - James Dean" If you check the Spectacles Blog library listing on the right you can see that the smallest category in terms of number of entries is the one that I thought would be quite easy. It should certainly be popular - people love celebrity and movie idols. Can you still say that (”idols”), It sounds so 1950’s. Well maybe that’s what it’s all about. Let’s look for a real 1950’s movie hero or heroine in their spectacles (rarer) or in sunglasses (easier - I’m guessing).OK best film star, male, of the period? James Dean. Yes we’ve got him, in what look like browlines from Shuron. See more about these specs in the piece on Malcolm X’s spectacles in Famous Four Eyes and further back.But James dean was also seen in more regular tortoise-shell glasses fairly typical of the period. Plus RayBan vendors claim that he made those sunglasses fashionable and famous (along with some other contemporary superstars).And I feel a bit of a fraud because these spectacles were not worn in the movies. But what the hell… the category needs more posts! Watch this space and I promise the next one will have spectacles/sunglasses that were actually in a movie. How about Men In Black, which comes to mind…
