James Dean was very much in love with Italian-born and bred actress Pier Angeli. She returned the feeling and the two wanted to get married, but Angeli’s mother didn’t like Dean and denied her daughter he wish to get married to Dean for he wasn’t Catholic. Pier’s mother soon fixed her up with Vic Damone. Shortly before Pier committed suicide in 1971 (she overdosed on sleeping pills) she wrote that Dean was the only man she had ever really loved.
