James Dean faked his death? – died at age 95 in Canada

Actor James Dean of Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden and Giant, died in a car crash on September 30, 1955, when he was only 24 years old.

Dean’s untimely death romanticized him into a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement. Hollywood celebrated him by making him the only actor to have had two posthumous acting nominations. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked him the 18th best male movie star of Golden Age Hollywood in AFI’s 100 Years…100 Stars list.

According to Wikipedia:

Dean’s funeral was held on October 8, 1955, at the Fairmount Friends Church in Fairmont, Indiana. The coffin remained closed to conceal the severe injuries to his upper torso and face. An estimated 600 mourners were in attendance, while another 2,400 fans gathered outside the church during the procession. Dean’s body is buried at Park Cemetery in Fairmount – less than a mile from where he grew up on his aunt and uncle’s farm.

Crazy Days and Nights (CDAN) is a Hollywood gossip website that has been described by The Daily Beast as having a track record of accuracy, and by investigative journalist Mark Ebner as “being proven right again and again”.

Yesterday, as a July 4th gift to his readers, CDAN’s Ent Lawyer published a bonanza of Blind Items Revealed, one of which is this mind-blowing reveal that James Dean had faked his death, moved to live a quiet life in Canada, and recently died in a real car accident at age 95.

Below is the Blind Item Revealed:

One of the longest held secrets in Hollywood was known by a handful of people. I was never one of those people. Even as the secret was passed down to a second and then a third generation, I still never knew. It was not until the last week of April that I was told the secret and that it was OK to talk about it now because the subject of the secret had been killed in an auto accident. That was kind of fitting considering that is how he “died,” the first time. He was A+ list that first time. The entire world loved him and adored him and he hated every second of it. He wanted no part of it. So, with the help of a police chief who thought the world of him and a rival studio head who was willing to do anything to not watch those big box office numbers he put up, they got to work. The studio chief got some set designers and stunt people and they created a car wreck. The police chief donated a body from the morgue no one was going to claim, so they could bury a body and it was all set. The studio chief signed a contract with the actor and it basically paid him about $1500 a week for his entire life. And boy did he live a long life. When he was killed north of the border in an auto accident in April he was 95 or 96 depending on whether you used his Canadian or American birth certificate. For much of the past 60 some odd years he had lived in a remote section of that northern country, but in the past few years moved to a much larger city so he and his wife could be closer to medical care. Being 95/96 didn’t stop his love of driving though and his wife loved being with him when he did. She was with him in the car when they were hit by a tractor trailer. His wife is expected to make a full recovery.

James Dean

Some enterprising CDAN readers found news accounts of a fatal car-trailer  collision on April 24, 2018 in Alberta, Canada, in which the 95-year-old driver of the car died.

The collision took place at around 2:30 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 583 and Highway 21 near Three Hills, Alberta. A passenger car carrying two occupants was struck on the driver’s side by a semi-tractor trailer unit. The car entered into the intersection from Highway 583 after the stop sign to make a left, north-bound turn onto Highway 21, when it was struck by the south-bound semi-truck.

The 95-year-old man driving the car, was brought to hospital, where he later died. The passenger of the car, a 96-year-old woman, was airlifted to a city hospital with serious injuries. The semi-driver was not injured.

Names of those involved in the collision were not released by Royal Canadian Mounted Police. (Sources: 660news; Calgary Sun)

There is an obituary for a 95-year-old man, William Jabez Stoness of Trochu, Alberta, Canada, who died on April 24, 2018, at 2:30 pm.

His wife, Reta, died two days later. (Her obituary here)

Stoness and Reta had 4 children, 15 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.

The obit says Stoness “owned several Harley’s”. James Dean‘s hobby was auto racing. He competed in professional auto-racing events. He had been ticketed for speeding 2 hours 15 minutes before he slammed his Porsche into a Ford at an intersection on Route 466, near Cholame, California.

Below are side-by-side pics of James Dean (l) and William Jabez Stoness (r):

  2. Absolutely no resemblance. Look at the nose and mouth. I know cartilage keeps growing but Dean’s nose is slightly upward-tilted, whereas the old gent’s is down-turned. A lot.
    Dean had a small, pouty mouth with a full lower lip—the older man had a very thin-lipped mouth.

Back then maybe but possible and truly the only way to say for sure is to get a DNA of what is in the grave in Indiana, everything else unless you get a paper trail. Now if the money is there should be a paper trail you would be able to prove it but other than that how would you prove it.

    This is the first I’ve ever heard of this theory, and I don’t see any good reason for putting any credence in it. What’s the actual evidence? Just that someone has said it?

    The two famous people I know the most about are Senator Joe McCarthy and James Dean. When I was a young, wannabe actor, I idolized James Dean. I thought he was the most naturally gifted and imaginative actor I’d ever seen, and I still feel that way, although I no longer idolize any human beings.

    In fact, for a few years, I even suspected I may have been James Dean reincarnated. (I no longer believe that, either.) I’ve been to his gravesite a few times; I’ve been in his childhood bedroom and tapped his bongo drums; I’ve seen his black leather motorcycle jacket and one of his motorcycles parked in the family barn; I met and spoke with his aunt who raised him and his high school drama teacher (both of them have since passed on).

    Dean loved the limelight and attention, and he had a very real dream of becoming a director. (And I feel certain he’d have been an extraordinary director!) Dean was full of energy and ambition and he was living the “Carpe Diem” life like few do. Again, there is just no good reason to think he’d have faked his death. It’s even almost comical for me to contemplate that idea, knowing all that I do about him.

    • “it’s even almost comical for me to contemplate that idea, knowing all that I do about him.” Totally agree (1000% agree). For people who read many books about him and knowing things about him, the theory it’s almost comical (no offense).
      That’s why when a guy posted that in a comment on a facebook group of James Dean fans (some of these people are so obsessed with him like me and you, apparently), one of fans answer “please (…)” and nobody else in that group cares about the theory. In fact, I think the comment was deleted because I can’t find the comment now.

      He looked older in pics cause he was an insomniac and smoked a lot. In fact, in old hollywood many of the actors/actress looks older. Some people who met him said he looked “boyish” in person.

      Bill Hickman said Jimmy died in his arms. There was lot of witness, the mechanic,Roy Schatt, the doctor, the police, Donald,etc. Why these people and Hollywood would they enter into a theory for an actor who was not even very famous? He had already signed a contract with the studio for several films. (and he was already worked for some of that roles) Acting was his passion (and he went through a lot to porsue that passion) and he wanted to be a director. All his closest friends said the “death wish thing” (there was also that theory) makes no sense cause he talked about a lot about the future and about directing. And it was almost impossivel to survive to that crash in that car (unfortunately, the impact was all in Jimmy’s side).

      Apparently, Roy Schatt took pics of him dead but he never published due to respect for Jimmy’s family. It is said that he sold the pics to a Japanese guy obsessed with Jimmy.

        HiYa, Susane. James Dean’s very real desire to direct and his overwhelming passion for racing — knowing of those things, alone, makes this an unbelievable story. He had every reason to want to live and NOT disappear into Everyday Life just as all his dreams were coming true. It’s just not a credible story for anyone who knows a bit about Jimmy’s personality and his wishes.

        I was indeed obsessed with Dean in my youth, because of my desire to act. He was the guy I looked up to most because of his astounding God-given gift. I could sit with a person and watch ‘East Of Eden’ (my favorite of his films) and point out countless things that Jimmy invented for his character which were NOT in the screenplay. He was amazingly inventive.

        I was pretty sure I would never equal Jimmy’s inventiveness and ability to disappear into the character, but I wanted to try. I studied acting professionally and got a few minuscule parts in Hollyweird (MAS*H, Hill Street Blues, etc.)

        But, interestingly, after awhile, I started to discover who I really was and became comfortable in my own skin and with my own personality. And right about then, I began losing my interest in pretending to be other “characters”. The character I naturally was seemed to be enough.

        However, I still have the same respect for Jimmy’s art and talent that I always did and from time-to-time, I get into another James Dean phase and revisit his movies and the few books about him that I decided to hold onto. (Most of them I eventually gave away.)

        A friend of mine bought me the ‘LA-LA-LAND’ movie, knowing I’d appreciate the several James Dean references. And she knew I’d never see that movie unless she got me the DVD. (I can’t stand most of what Hollyweird does today. That town is almost completely out of ideas… and out of its mind, too!)

    Study old photographs of James Dean from his high school days to the various and sundry pictures from his movie star heyday with a critical eye. Note his small slight physique, narrow sloping shoulders, oval face, lack of discernable brow ridges, not much prominent high wide cheeks, small mouth, fat lips and a more rounded then squared jaw. The decision is yours! Mind you “Skull and Bones” isn’t just a name for a Yale fraternity of university students romanticizing themselves as pirates and flying the jolly Roger. Skull and bones means something, it means skull shape and bone structure. Skull and bones do not lie, bones men do indeed so lie. Now, I’m not 100 percent certain that the photo of the older man is James Dean or not without first superimposing or overlaying the old man’s image over young James.Dean’s image and checking the alignment of the two images. With that said, if James Dean was a demonically transgendered entity as may well have been the case, she would be the perfect candidate for taking her own death so that she might keep her secret. As they age some of them struggle to maintain the subterfuge as they are ravaged by decades of hormone abuse. Their true self constantly struggles to reimerge. That older individual may well be Jamie Dean, somebody with the right software needs to overlay the images and check for a match.

      You are entirely right, STEVEN. Dean was just starting to achieve his goals and starting to get the things he’d been striving for. He had everything to live for and no real reason to try disappearing right at the moment when things were coming together for him.

      And as Susan said below, at the time he died, he was not yet so famous that, like Elvis, he would need to privately rent an entire bowling alley if he wanted to go bowling some night. He was really just on the cusp of stardom, and it was his sudden death that propelled him to super-stardom. He was already dead before the public even got to see 2 of his 3 movies; ‘Rebel Without A Cause’ and ‘Giant’ were both released posthumously.

      George, I see no reason to believe this story about James Dean, because I see no evidence of any kind. Not even a list of odd “coincidences”. It’s just one person (whom I don’t know) from a website (which I know nothing about) making a wild claim.

      Why should I believe this old man who died in Canada was James Dean, as opposed to believing it was some old man who died in North Dakota, or San Diego, or London, England or… [name any place]? I mean, I don’t see a hint of evidence beyond “someone said it”. Anyone can say anything. I need verifiable reasons to believe something.

      The Moon Landings / Moon Walks, on the other hand, were completely bogus, and just one hour of objective, open-minded research should be enough to sufficiently prove that to anyone willing to know the truth.

      I can’t decide which was the bigger hoax, Evolution or the Moon Walks, but both are lies!!

                  The UFO subject is actually one of my specialties, as I developed an interest in it as early as 5th or 6th grade. (That was way back when it was really much more of a fringe topic than it is today.) By the time I entered 7th grade, I had read every book on UFOs contained in my local library. And, of course, I went right on reading about them in the ensuing decades.

                  In fact, I even had a couple UFO experiences of my own during the time I was living in Arizona.

                  It took quite a long time and a lot of study, but I eventually came to a conclusion of near certainty that UFOs and their occupants are not at all extraterrestrial space travelers, but rather interdimensional demons. And I strongly suspect they may play a major role in Biblical End-Time events, which we are now just beginning to enter into.

                  Therefore, the idea that these demons may be interacting with agents of Uncle Scam, having deceived government officials into thinking of them as originating from other planets or galaxies, would fit right into the concept I currently hold about what lies just ahead.

                  It seems we’re both in agreement that the evidence NASA has shown to We The People is utterly bogus. It would take a pretty large amount of solid evidence to convince me that we really have walked on the Moon in the past. I don’t think we have that technology even now, let alone back in the late 1960s. But I’m always willing to keep an open mind while investigating evidence that someone presents to me in support of their own beliefs.

                  So, again, I apologize for that first snarky reply, and thank you for your response. In time, I will check into those sources you mentioned and see what conclusions I reach.

                  Bless And Be Blessed!

                      Thanks, GEORGE. I read your two blog posts, and some of that info, regarding the Nazis and their work on the designs of flying machines, I had encountered before. But I haven’t really looked deep enough to determine the validity of it all. And, of course, the importing of some Nazi scientists into NASA is well known fact.

                      I’m a real stickler when it comes to evidence and I need genuinely verifiable facts before I jump onboard a cause and/or promote the disseminating of ideas and accusations. But when I find the time to look into these things further, I will indeed let you know what sort of conclusions I reach.

                      A lot of things that seem outlandish are in fact reality. And then again, a lot of outlandish ideas are false, and are often thrown into the mix by Uncle Scam agents for the sole purpose of muddying the waters and tarnishing the reputation of truth by associating it with blatant falsehoods in the mind of the general public. So, as I’m sure you’re already aware, great caution must always be exercised in order to separate the wheat from the deliberately mixed-in chaff.

    Jabez Stone is a character a farmer who sold his soul to the devil. William Bast was Dean’s friend and eventual biographer. Thus William Jabez Stoness is William + Jabez Stone + ss. Dean seems to have been concerned with being corrupted by Hollywood, and thus perhaps saw himself as a man who sold his soul to the devil.

  26. The California Death Index states the Social Security number for James Byron Dean (DOB 2/8/1931) as 310281959. Inputting that SSN into the Social Security Death Index brings up nothing–which would be expected now that one must wait until three years after a death to find it in the SSDI.

    So this supports Eowyn’s thesis.

    • Wow!!!

      Thank you, dinophile, for that very important information that James Dean is not in the Social Security Death Index although he supposedly had died 63 years ago in 1955!

      • It means either that a fake number was placed on the death certificate or he is not dead (i.e., the number is still in use).

        I have run into this in other research and am coming to believe that there must be a pool of fake Social Security numbers held by the government specifically for psy ops.

  28. With Hollywood, the government and MSM involved, anything is possible. It’s almost always lies and ALWAYS about the money. The pictures of James Dean aren’t a visual match to me, but have you ever gone to a high school reunion and notice how your classmates look almost nothing like the 18 year old friend you graduated with? While a number of people still look the same, only more gray and wrinkled, some have lived very difficult, stressful lives which changed their looks substantially. James Dean could have had some plastic surgery after his faked death to save him from being recognized which would explain the older picture of him .

  29. Someone else echoed my thoughts. I thought that he was supposedly a big time homosexual. Could he really have gotten it up enough to be with a woman and have that many kids? I’m not trying to be crude; it’s an honest question. Are there any rumors of this old man living a secret gay life? Sorry, I just don’t buy this story. I think it makes other stories that are actually true be tarnished because people are going to lump this story in with those.

      Hello, SANDY. Although I’m not buying the story, James Dean being “a big time homosexual” is NOT one of the reasons I’m putting no credence into the rumor.

      Dean was not a homosexual. At the very most, a person might be able to accuse him of being bisexual, or of having a homosexual encounter or two, but not of being a homosexual. Dean dated a number of women, and the real love of his life was Pier Angeli. He was crushed when, due to family pressure, she eventually chose Vic Damone over him and married a “respectable Italian Catholic” rather than a scruffy Quaker.

      There are rumors that Dean had a homosexual affair or two, but they are far from proven. And something Dean himself once said about “not going through life with one hand tied behind his back” has helped fuel the rumors.

      But knowing Dean to the extent I do, I know it’s possible that a remark like that was said in jest, just to see how people would react to it. (He did and said a lot of things just to observe the reactions of others. He was ALWAYS studying human behavior.)

      Whether or not he really did have any homosexual encounters, I know that he was primarily heterosexual and he was genuinely hurt when Pier Angeli succumbed to family pressure and dumped him in favor of Vic Damone.

  30. You sound like one of these people who say, “Men in prison who have sex with other men are not homosexual; they simply have no access to women.” That aint normal, no matter what they teach in Women’s Studies class. I will stand only slightly corrected. Yes, by most accounts he was bisexual and not strictly homosexual. Homosexuality is a learned behavior and people are not born that way. It is also very addicting and people often engage in in for quite some time and often give up natural sex. Granted, not always, but often.

      SANDY, I am drawing a distinction between men who are normally attracted to the opposite sex but may have “experimented” a few times with homosexual affairs, and those men who are attracted to the same sex as a matter of course. The latter being true homosexuals.

      BTW, all of it — whether homosexual, bisexual, or heterosexuals who have occasionally experimented with homosexual affairs — is abnormal and I personally find it cringe-worthy, incomprehensible, and very un-Biblical. So, don’t mistakenly think I’m condoning ANY of it.

      However, I, to some degree, disagree with something you’ve written. In my nearly 59 years, one of the very most important lessons I’ve learned in life (and one which I often attempt to pass on to others) is this:

      It seems to be human nature to want to label things as black or white. People naturally approach most scenarios with an “EITHER THIS or THAT” kind of mindset. But I have learned that far more often — in fact, the vast majority of the time — the real answer to a situation is not THIS OR THAT, but rather, BOTH. Meaning that situations alter cases, and in some scenarios the answer is This but in other scenarios, the answer is That. It’s not always Either / Or.

      Homosexuality is a perfect example, and it may even be the question that first made me aware that BOTH is the better starting point than is a THIS or THAT assumption.

      I have known and worked with many homosexuals (men and women), and spent 7 years working in Hollyweird, which is loaded with them. And in many cases, I spoke with them and got their “life stories”. As a result, I became completely convinced that some of them truly were born predisposed to a sexual attraction to the same sex, while for others, it was a conscious decision, or a “lifestyle choice” (as they like to call it). In all of the latter cases that I am familiar with, it seemed to me that the decision to have sexual encounters with the same sex was actually a form of rebellion against someone (often parents) or something.

      Bottom Line: I am convinced it is a mistake to automatically assume that in ALL cases of homosexual activity, it was a choice the person made. I’m certain that some percentage of homosexuals were born inclined that way.

      • Agreed. I think pedophilia has a huge correlation with homosexuality- when a child or adolescent is molested, their first sexual arousal comes from their abuser. If it’s a little boy being abused by a man he equates those feelings with males, and it’s the same for girls. (see “Chaz” Bono’s first encounter with Cher’s [I would put money on] FEMALE best friend that you wrote about the other day). The damage that that did to young Chastity is right in front of our faces.
        It’s sick but predators do try to arouse their victims.
        And after reading about Kevin Spacey and his ilk I learned that they have an interest in “turning” young, tween, teen boys into homosexuals like them.

  31. I have several friends who are homosexual, or “gay” as the common nomenclature goes. They are good people and I enjoy spending time with them. However, this does not mean that I have to condone unnatural sexuality. Many (most?) homosexuals are that way because of abuse, and that is not their fault.

  33. James Dean was born in 1931. If he was alive in 2018 he wouldn’t be 95years old yet… he wouldn’t turn 95 until the year 2026… so the age of the accident victim doesn’t match up with the age James Dean would be.

  34. Stephen, thank you for the interaction. I appreciate your posts. (I hope I didn’t appear snarky, that was not the intent.) I agree with much of what you said. I know that my point of view is certainly not the majority, but knowing several homosexuals and being friends with many over the course of my life, I still think that the vast majority were neither born that way, NOR did they choose it. In other words, it was presented to them in the form of abuse. They were not born that way to begin with, but neither did they make a purposeful and concerted effort to choose a gay lifestyle, at the age of 11 (or 16 or 18 or whatever) after they were stimulated sexually at an early age by an older boy or a man. The current American culture tells you that about 99 – 100% of homosexuals are born gay, but I think it’s a much, much smaller percentage. Even though I don’t agree with the homosexual lifestyle, I do feel bad for may of them caught up in this system that was thrust on them. I think there are some who do willfully rebel and do make a rebellious choice, but I think they are the minority.

    Homosexuality,like porn, is addicting. If we were to find out that this old man led a closeted gay lifestyle, then I would believe that this story is true. But absent that, I’m not believing this story for a minute.

    (By the way, I have heard of stories of people freed from porn and homosexuality. It is not unheard of.)

      Hi, SANDY and DOC E! ~
      No worries, Sandy. I know from first-hand experience that very often written words don’t always translate a person’s mood and attitude correctly. (Thank God for emojis! 🙂 )

      I was aware of the studies you referenced here, Doctor Eowyn, and I believe and embrace them. In fact, they confirmed what I had been saying for a long time. Namely, that a “Gay gene” will never be found because it’s highly unlikely that such a thing exists.

      I have never believed that homosexuality was a physiological disorder or in any way based in biology. From those “gay” people whom I personally got to know, it seemed to me that the greater number of them had made a conscious (or even subconscious) choice, primarily rooted in a form of rebellion.

      I have no doubt that a good number of them (possibly even the majority) gravitated to homosexuality as a result of unfortunate early experiences forced upon them, such as you’ve mentioned, Sandy.

      In the very early 1980s, a buddy of mine confessed that when he was very young, some homosexual man he knew “seduced” him into a sexual relationship. In the early ’80s, he was part of this group of friends of mine that was rather wild — lots of drinking and no lack of Testosterone. I never betrayed my buddy’s trust in me by mentioning his past to anyone else, ever. And he most definitely had reverted back to his natural heterosexual nature by then. (In fact, he accidentally even stole a girl away from me once. Ha!-Ha!)

      However, I do strongly believe that a small number (much smaller than the number who were sexually abused by homosexuals in their youth, or who are actively rebelling) of homosexuals were born predisposed to it. The reason there’s no “Gay gene” or any other biological indication of it is because I think its origin is more psychological or, that is, based at the soul level of their personality.

      I could explain that in further detail but it would require delving into theological issues that would be very far afield of this post’s primary topic.

        Exactly, the person who tells (made up) the story doesn’t know much about Jimmy but when it was obvious no one was buying the story appeared an “unknower” poster who, allegedly, met a Jimmy’s friend (of course!) and confirmed the story.
        I could also say that xD. In fact, I really found people on facebook who was friend with him/worked with Jimmy.

  35. The one thing I’d add to this is that, for anyone who understands the enormity of the fraud that is the 9-11 operation, they should never doubt the ability of those in positions of power to lie.

    In other words, the default position should not be “belief”. It should always be skepticism. If someone wants us to believe something we must always wonder why. The more dogmatic they become and insistent that we “believe” the more skeptical we should be.
