I’m fortunate enough to have some Chris Consani prints and, as someone completely obsessed with old Hollywood, I’m always looking to add to my collection.
The Nine Chris Consani Posters bundled in a set (pictured above) would be the ideal way to get a jump on your own collection. If you aren’t familiar with Consani’s work, let me assure you this – they are pure joy and unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
This set would be a gorgeous way to bring the fun of the Golden Age of Hollywood into your own home – they’d also make pretty darn amazing gift ideas for other fans of Marilyn, Humphrey, James, and Elvis.

I would love, love, love to cover our Christmas tree with stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood, as well as characters from Classic TV. The only problem is, a lifetime of Christmas ornament collecting already produces a very full Christmas tree.
The only option is clear… a second tree! I have the spot picked out – right next to my computer desk. This way I can look at my beloved stars of yesterday as I work all day. Problem solved.
The Carlton Cards Heirloom James Dean Christmas Ornament, above, is just the sort of ornament I’m talking about.
Fans of James Dean will want this ornament (as well as the one below). We have to act fast, though, there aren’t many left! Click throgh the image or the link above for more information.
You’ll also want to check out the James Dean Christmas ornament below. This one is the Carlton Cards 10th Anniversary Heirloom Collection James Dean Ornament… and remember how I said fans need to act SOON? There’s only one of these left in stock on Amazon! This one’s obviously a collector’s dream come true.
I’m completely in love with this gorgeous James Dean – Street Distressed Adult T-Shirt In White. It’s more professional and “cool” looking than a lot of James Dean t-shirts out there.

The talented and controversial actor Dennis Hopper passed away recently (April 29, 2010). His career, like most careers marked by drug and/or alcohol abuse, was pretty much a roller-coaster ride – one which left his fans wondering what all he could have accomplished if not for his demons.
The ruggedly handsome Dennis Hopper was born on May 17, 1936, in Dodge City, Kansas. He knew, at a very young age, that he wanted to be an actor and appeared in a lot of 1950s television shows, such as “Medic” (1954), “Cheyenne” (1955) and “Sugarfoot” (1957).
His first film role was in Johnny Guitar (1954), which was quickly followed by roles in Rebel Without a Cause (1955), Giant (1956) and Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957). Dennis Hopper became good friends with James Dean, his co-star in Rebel and Giant. He reportedly was shattered when Dean was killed in the infamous car crash in September of 1955.
Dennis Hopper portrayed a young Napoléon Bonaparte in The Story of Mankind (1957), but, in my opinion, was at his most deliciously entertaining portraying villains in westerns such as True Grit (1969) and Hang ‘Em High (1968).
In 1969, Dennis Hopper and fellow actor Peter Fonda teamed with writer Terry Southern to write a road movie script. Hopper directed the low-budget film, titled Easy Rider (1969), which starred Fonda, Hopper and a young Jack Nicholson. The film was a huge success.
Hopper admitted that during the 70s he seriously abused various substances, both legal and illegal. Naturally, none of this led to anything good. He appeared in a couple of forgettable European films over the next eight years, before pulling himself up by the bootstraps with a memorable performance alongside Marlon Brando and Martin Sheen in Francis Ford Coppola’s Vietnam War epic Apocalypse Now (1979).
He also received acclaim for his work in both acting and direction for Out of the Blue (1980).
In the 80s, Dennis Hopper faced his addictions to drugs and alcohol and enrolled in a rehabilitation program. This effort paid off with Rumble Fish (1983), The Osterman Weekend (1983), My Science Project (1985), River’s Edge (1986) and, of course, Blue Velvet (1986).
Dennis Hopper returned to directing in 1988 with the controversial gang film Colors. He put his acting cap back on for roles in Super Mario Bros. (1993), True Romance (1993), Speed (1994/I) Waterworld (1995), The Night We Called It a Day (2003), The Keeper (2004) and Land of the Dead (2005).
Dennis Hopper died from prostate cancer on May 29, 2010 in Venice Beach, California.
Dennis Hopper’s 1970 marriage to Michelle Philips lasted only a few days.
He was a skilled photographer and painter.
He was married a total of 5 times – with 1 child coming from all but 1 of the unions (Philips).
He was married to his 5th bride at the time of his death.
At one time, Dennis Hopper was blackballed from Hollywood roles for eight years.
He was a member of the Republican Party but voted for Barack Obama.
Named James Dean as the best actor he ever worked with.
He thinks that the worst movie that he has ever done was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.
Received the 2,403th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 26, 2010.
“I’ve been sober now for 18 years. With all the drugs, psychedelics and narcotics I did, I was [really] an alcoholic. Honestly, I only used to do cocaine so I could sober up and drink more. My last five years of drinking was a nightmare. I was drinking a half-gallon of rum with a fifth of rum on the side, in case I ran out, 28 beers a day, and three grams of cocaine just to keep me moving around. And I thought I was doing fine because I wasn’t crawling around drunk on the floor.” (2001)
“I’ve been a Republican since Reagan. I voted for Bush and his father. I don’t tell a lot of people, because I live in a city where somebody who voted for Bush is really an outcast.”
“I should have been dead ten times over. I’ve thought about that a lot. I believe in miracles. It’s an absolute miracle that I’m still around.”
(About James Dean) “Jimmy was the most talented and original actor I ever saw work. He was also a guerrilla artist who attacked all restrictions on his sensibility. Once he pulled a switchblade and threatened to murder his director. I imitated his style in art and in life. It got me in a lot of trouble.”
“There are moments that I’ve had some real brilliance, you know. But I think they are moments. And sometimes, in a career, moments are enough. I never felt I played the great part. I never felt that I directed the great movie. And I can’t say that it’s anybody’s fault but my own.”
“I made a picture called Super Mario Bros. (1993), and my six-year-old son at the time – he’s now 18 – he said, ‘Dad, I think you’re probably a pretty good actor, but why did you play that terrible guy “King Koopa” in “Super Mario Bros.”?’ and I said, ‘Well Henry, I did that so you could have shoes’, and he said, ‘Dad, I don’t need shoes that badly’.”

James Dean is such a wonderful American icon – as recognizable as Marilyn Monroe and Abraham Lincoln. In just over a year, Dean starred in three films and became a representation of the rebellious American youth of the mid-fifties. He still personifies the mystery and restlessness of adolescence today.
The outstanding photographs in this calendar pay homage to the James Dean that fans will always remember and love.
