Rebel Without a Cause
James Dean and Natalie Wood star as wayward teens in this cult classic.
Dir Nicolas Ray
With James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo
It’s hard to imagine that James Dean only made three films when you look back at his assured, convincing performance as Jim Stark, a suburban teen with authority issues. Nicholas Ray’s drama was considered shocking at the time by many who feared a rise in juvenile delinquency as a result of its shameless depiction of teen alcohol consumption and criminal immorality.
