James Dean & Sara Montiel
Sara Montiel, one of Spain's greatest actresses and singers, died on April 8, 2013. She was the first Spanish actress to participate in Hollywood films with the likes of Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster. During the filming of "Serenade" in 1955, Sara Montiel became friends with Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean, who were participating in "Giant" on the adjacent studio.
The photograph below shows Sara and James Dean sharing a moment of laughter. This was James Dean's last photograph before his untimely death. It has been said that Sara had intended to join him on his Porsche for that tragic journey.
