Michael Parks/Christopher Jones: A Photo Montage Of Two James Dean Wannabes
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.
Michael Parks in "The Bible." Brings me to my knees every time.
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.
Michael Parks at his finest Parks and recreation. Even when well dressed--or dressed at all--Michael looked fine. A comeback in "Kill Bill Vol. 1" Christopher Jones as an attitudin' dude in Three in the Attic, with my favorite actress, Judy Pace. Jones matching wits with Shelley WInters in the youth fantasy Wild in the Streets, as a hipster dryly looks on Me and Mr. Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones... Jones with then-wife Susan Strasberg in the tuna fishing adventure "Chubasco." No joke.
