1959, the first Barbie Doll goes on display at the American Toy Fair in New York City. The eleven inches tall, with a waterfall of blond hair, Barbie was the first mass-produced toy doll in the United States with adult features. The woman behind Barbie was Ruth Handler, who co-founded Mattel Toys Inc. with her husband in 1945. After seeing her young daughter ignore her baby dolls to play make-believe with paper dolls of adult women, Handler realized there was an important niche in the market for a toy that allowed little girls to imagine the future.

James Dean Porche Spyder, James Dean PorcheOn this day in 1955, movie star James Dean dies at age 24 in a car crash on a California highway. Dean was driving his Porsche 550 Spyder, nicknamed "Little Bastard," headed to a car race in Salinas, California, with his mechanic Rolf Wuetherich, when they were involved in a head-on collision with a car driven by a 23-year-old college student named Donald Turnaspeed. Dean was taken to Paso Robles War Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 5:59 p.m. Wuetherich, who was thrown from the car, survived the accident and Turnaspeed escaped with minor injuries. No charges were ever filed against him.

It started out as an assignment and become a legacy. In 1955 the young Magnum photographer Dennis Stock accompanied James Dean in New York. The  photograph would prove to be the best and the most intimate portrait of James Dean.

In Hollywood, the suicide toll has been great. Avid James Dean fans still speculate that his fatal car accident was never an accident but a self destructive reaction to the pressures imposed by fame.

Having become sullen after losing his lover Pier Angeli to Vic Damone. "Live fast, die young and have a good-looking corpse," said Dean who was dead within a month of predicting his own demise.

Pier Angeli never really adjusted to Hollywood or to the death of James Dean. A year later, Pier Angeli was found dead. Her suicide induced by a barbiturate overdose was blamed as she told an interviewer, "I am still in love with Jimmy" and then blamed Hollywood for the dead of their teen idol
