Okay, what was James Dean doing hanging around with Morticia Adams? And did Gomez know?

Actually, I believe that's Vampira, trying to convince Dean that he could really stretch out as an artist if he worked with that radical, new wave director Ed Wood Jr.

That is indeed Maila Nurmi (aka, Vampira) and I recall years ago reading an interview with her where she talked about James Dean and what a lousy lay he was (though wasn't it Kenneth Anger who called him 'The Human Ashtray'?).

But then, I've never seen an interview with her where she wasn't complaining about something.

I love Vampira, but you are very correct: she does tend to complain a lot.
