She produced and starred in her own films in the 1960s to the end of the 1970s. Her movies were big moneymakers making her the highest paid movie actress of her generation and a certified Movie and Box Office Queen. She later starred in productions by Viva Films (My Only Love). She also starred in later Regal Films such as Asawa Ko Huwag Mong Agawin, starring Vilma Santos, Eddie Guttierrez and Gabby Concepcion.

James Dean (1931-1955).
He is remembered as a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause (1955), in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.
He studied theatre for two years at the University of California at Los Angeles. His first professional acting assignment was for a soft drink commercial. He played bit parts in three Hollywood films before moving to New York City on the advice of actor James Whitmore, with whom he had briefly studied. After a series of short-term jobs, he was cast in a key role in the Broadway flop See the Jaguar (1952). More successful was his performance as a blackmailing homosexual houseboy in another Broadway production, The Immoralist (1954).
The Immoralist brought Dean to the attention of film director Elia Kazan, who cast the 23-year-old actor in the leading role of troubled teenager Cal Trask in East of Eden (1955). When East of Eden premiered, Dean was seen as a movie star of the first magnitude and was nominated for an Academy Award.
Dean’s second starring film appearance, as sensitive high-school misfit Jim Stark in director Nicholas Ray’s Rebel Without a Cause (1955), made him into the embodiment of his generation. Dean’s performance spoke eloquently on behalf of disenchanted, disenfranchised teenagers and gave them a hero they could respect and admire.
Dean was next cast in producer-director George Stevens’s Giant (1956), a drama set on a Texas ranch that also starred Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor. Shortly after completing the film, the restless Dean drove off in his silver Porsche to compete in a sports car rally in Salinas, California. Speeding down the highway, he crashed headlong into a Ford sedan and was killed instantly. Almost immediately an intensely loyal cult was established, and within days of his death he became a film icon. Both Rebel Without a Cause and Giant were released posthumously, and he received an Oscar nomination for the latter film.
While at UCLA, Dean dated Beverly Wills, an actress with CBS, and Jeanette Lewis, a classmate. While in New York, he then dated Barbara Glenn for two years.
Dean’s best-remembered relationship was with young Italian actress Pier Angeli. He also dated actresses Liz Sheridan and Ursula Andress.
