Movie set of Giant, filmed on a ranch outside of Marfa, TX. The movie starred Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean, who died before the movie was released. The movie was released in 1956. I took the pictures in December of 1995 and was going to use them in my third issue. The movie set, crumbling, was the frame work for the front of the house in the movie. The pictures across the highway were where Jett had his small spread and discovered oil. The coral is still there where Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean had a great scene together.
