We remember star James Dean, who died on this day in 1955.
Director Nicholas Ray’s mythic saga of teen disobedience and alienation in 1950s America made James Dean and co-star Natalie Wood instant cultural icons. Ray’s use of color and the CinemaScope screen remains groundbreaking, rivaling Hitchcock for striking frame compositions and bold symbolism. Co-starring Sal Mineo, Jim Backus and Dennis Hopper, and featuring the Griffith Park Observatory.
