From a letter James Dean wrote to Barbara Glenn, while filming East of Eden:
Was very pleased to hear from you. That’s putting it mildly. Gadge Kazan and Williams are nice but I wouldn’t trust the sons-a-bitches far’s I could throw em. They can take advantage of you like anybody else.
Honey!!! I’m still a Calif. virgin, remarkable no. I’m saving it - H-bomb Dean. A new addition has been added to the Dean family. I got a red 53 MG (milled head etc. hot engine). My sex pours itself into fast curves, broadsides and broodings, drags, etc. You have plenty of competition now. My motorcycle, my MG, and my girl. I have been sleeping with my MG. We make it together. HONEY.

The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death
Frances Glessner Lee, a millionaire heiress, revolutionized the study of forensics and crime scene investigation. She believed that crimes could be solved by a detailed analysis of visual and material evidence.
She used newspaper reports, and interviews with policemen and morgue workers to create miniture crime scenes(which were extremely detailed) such as suicides, accidental deaths, accidents as homicides and homicide, potentially, as suicides. Of the twenty she made, eighteen have survived and of those eighteen, eleven show violent deaths of women. Everything from the wallpaper to the presence of alcohol and drugs was added to the miniture crime scenes.
This helped investigators train to identify crimes and clues found at crime scenes and left a big mark on the field as we know it today. They were also used in Harvard Associates in Police Science (HAPS) seminars. She called them nutshell cases, a name that was inspired by a detective who told her this:
As the investigator, you must bear in mind that there is a two-fold responsibility—to clear the innocent as well as expose the guilty. Seek only the facts—Find the truth in a Nutshell.
There is a documentary about this on Netflix called Of Dolls and Murder.
If she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will.
