Plot & Details

James Dean starred in only three motion pictures before he died in an auto accident at the age of 24, but he created such an indelible image in those films that he's still considered one of the great Hollywood icons of the '50s and remains a role model to rebellious youth to this day. The Real James Dean: From Indiana Farmboy to Hollywood Legend is a documentary which explores both the public and private lives of this great star, including readings from his journals, rare footage from screen tests and wardrobe tests for his pictures, behind-the-scenes home movies from the making of East of Eden, and interviews with fans, friends, and co-workers. Interview subjects include Dennis Hopper, Dick Van Patten, Rod Steiger, and more.
