"In the stressful final weeks of finishing Contra, Ezra was anxiously walking to the studio when a complete stranger stopped him, smiled and said “You take your time, young lion.” When he met Rostam at the studio, he told him about this strange encounter. Shortly thereafter, Rostam wrote this song. It’s now the coda to MVOTC —a final message of hope."
I LOVE THIS STORY SO MUCH
In sixteen months of acting, he left a more lasting impression on the public than many stars do in thirty years. - Henry Ginsberg
His film career was one of the most brilliant and one of the most spectacularly brief in history. He was more like a comet than a star. - Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
To me, the only success, the only greatness for a man is immortality. To have your work remembered in history, to leave something in this world that will last for centuries… that’s greatness. - James Dean (Feb. 8, 1931 - Sept. 30, 1955)
September 30, 1980.
Happy 34th birthday Emily Camille Kokal!
