James Dean in East of Eden
East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, Giant
. That's what you call a Complete James Dean Collection, I guess. In each film, he performs a variation on the same outsider identity—perpetually tormented, John Donne style, by an internal good v. evil battle. Red jacket, white t-shirt, blue jeans—I watched Rebel for the first time seven years ago (I know, I know. What took me so long?) and I swear that's all I wanted to wear. You too? Awesome.
