Although Jean Dean never became a big star, there was another aspect of her career that granted her another kind of immortality.
Jean Dean modeled for Vaga, who was one of the most famous pin-up artists of his day.
She replaced his wife ( who had been his original model ), and was his favorite model of the early forties.

Another Varga pinup.
Jean Dean's likeness was later reused by "Virgin Atlantic Airlines".
The "Virgin Galactic" logo is a variation of the Virgin Atlantic logo.
And so in a way, Jean Dean is still with us today, and is part of the space age.
Watch "The Star Of Fate".
