Natalie said her favorite scene in Rebel Without a Cause was one she shared with James Dean that was cut from the film.

“It was in the car. I was waiting for him and he comes up and we talk to each other. There was a section of the scene where I imply that I’ve sort of been around, that I’m not really pure.

I say to him, ‘Do you think that’s bad?’ And he says ‘No, I just think it’s lonely. It’s the loneliest time.’

I thought it was a wonderful lineright on the cutting room floor.”

Happy Birthday Virginia Katherine McMath aka Ginger Rogers!
(July 16, 1911 – April 25, 1995)

“Ginger owes much of her professional longevity to her singular versatility. There are few who can act comedy and drama, as well as sing and dance. Ginger continues to conceive fresh activity and new fields. She is still stagestruck and screenstruck. Further, she retains the nerve of a newcomer, and the courage of a champion. What is a movie star, anyway? Is it magnetism? Well then, what’s magnetism? Or personality, for that matter. The mysterious quality is more than talent. The indefinable has been defined as ‘human warmth’, ‘mass appeal’ and ‘identification’, among other things. Whatever it is, Ginger Rogers had it and has it.” - Garson Kanin

“She was the dance queen of Hollywood … and George Balanchine once remarked that he only came to America because it was a land of girls like Ginger Rogers. Some of the others may have been better dancers; Ginger Rogers was a better star. Only with her did dance in the movie musical become a medium of serious emotion, only with her did Fred Astaire do his very best work, only with her did sophistication suddenly become accessible to all.”Sheridan Morley

"I don’t think there’s ever been anyone like Ginger, never. She was heaven." - Stanley Donen

Dean knew that Wood was jumpy. He tried to get her to relax - albeit in his own teasing way. “You look green,” he said, while they waited to begin the love scene. “And you know how green photographs in color.” But his jab did not break through. “I managed a grin, I think,” Wood said. In his narcissism, Dean may have felt that Wood was nervous about him. But Wood was actually not thinking of him at the moment, which may have been the problem. Instead, her mind was on the technical performance, the mechanics of the kiss. “I felt like a fighter before a match - let’s go in and get it over with. Jimmy was saying something, but all I could think of was: Is this the way - should I do it the way I rehearsed? Maybe that was too smooth. Maybe I should fumble a little.”

The big moment came for the kiss. Their lips met and Ray called cut, but Dean continued to press his lips against hers, and Wood (ever the pro) could tell that the camera was still rolling. “I didn’t exactly know what to do,” Wood said, “but I had no choice. Jimmy held and held and held. ‘Might as well enjoy it,’ he kidded me afterwards as I turned from green to red.” This time, Dean’s audacity worked. According to Wood, “the nervous spell was broken.”
