Michael Parks/Christopher Jones: A Photo Montage Of Two James Dean Wannabes
Michael Parks in "The Bible." Brings me to my knees every time.
Two '60s answers to James Dean, Michael Parks and Christopher Jones, had great cheekbones, carefully tousled hair, and just the right 'tude for a generation looking for hot new heroes to lead the counterculture.
Parks was one of the first faux Deans, and then Jones became a sort of faux Parks, but both made their mark and are still alive to tell incredible stories full of triumph and despair.
A toast to them via these scintillating photos.
Parks and recreation.
A comeback in "Kill Bill Vol. 1"
