Don Corleone meets James Dean’s kitten on this great new website

Shaun Usher’s new website, Lists of Note, launched just a few weeks ago (the first post was a charming to-do list drawn up by Johnny Cash). But Usher‘s already assembled a great collection of artifacts.

You’ll see jottings by Walt Whitman, John Wayne’s list of the best movie stars of all time (Spencer Tracy gets pride of place), Francis Ford Coppola’s casting notes for The Godfather, and other awesome documents. This week, Usher featured the feeding and care instructions that James Dean provided for his kitten, Marcus—a recent gift from Elizabeth Taylor—a week before his death. And when you’re done, you can click over to Usher’s other excellent website, Letters of Note.
