Photos of Anna Maria Pierangeli who was an actress

There were rumors that she and Dean secretly saw each other up until his death; Joe Hyams, in his 1992 biography of Dean, James Dean: Little Boy Lost, claims that he visited Dean just as Angeli, then married to Damone, was leaving his home. An Order for the Solemnization of Marriage pamphlet with the name “Pier” lightly penciled in every place the bride’s name is left blank was found amongst Dean’s personal effects after his death. She would later say that he was the love of her life: “He is the only man I ever loved deeply as a woman should love a man.” Friends of Angeli have said she never fully recovered from his death.
