In October 1956, Lee Strasberg stood before his class at the Actors Studio and talked about his former student. The session was audiotaped:

I saw Jimmy Dean in Giant the other night, and I must say that… [Strasberg breaks down, crying] You see, that’s what I was afraid of. [Long pause] When I got out of the cab, I cried. And it was funny, because, actually, I was crying out of two reasons. It was pleasure and enjoyment, which is odd, but I must say I cried from that, too. And the other thing was seeing Jimmy Dean on the screen.
I hadn’t cried when I heard of his death. Jack Garfein called me from Hollywood the night it happened, and I didn’t cry. It somehow was what I expected. And I don’t think I cried from that now. What I cried at was the waste, the waste.
