WHO IS JAMES DEAN?
Here’s a clip of the highway safety promotion James Dean made with actor Gig Young in which Dean says: “I find myself being very cautious on the highway. I don’t have the urge to speed on the highway. People say racing is dangerous but I’ll take my chances on the track any day than on the highway.” As he left, Dean turned around and gave this one last piece of advice: “Take it easy driving. The life you might save might be mine.”. The longer version begins with a drag-racing scene from “Rebel Without a Cause”, the 1955 “troubled youth” film that made Dean a star.
Chip bet $9,201 and finished with $21,601.
Eric bet $12,600. That brought him up to $30,000.
Greg bet $7,000 so he won this match with $35,200. His 2-day total is $60,601.
During the chat, Greg told Alex about his 6-year stint as an apprentice chef at two ski resorts in Europe. They were run by the U.S. military and he was making American food.
