Editorial Reviews

A brief career. A timeless stardom. In just three major movie roles, James Dean became an icon for the ages. Now his legacy shines even brighter thanks to this fascinating film that, filled with an astonishing treasure trove of newfound or rare glimpses of Dean's TV performances, is like a road map to his meteoric success. Michael J. Sheridan directs and Martin Sheen narrates this revealing documentary showcased at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. Movie clips, romances, photos that are part of our national DNA (and the stories behind them) and the small-screen work that paved the way to the big screen are all part of the James Dean you couldn't see until now. Forever young. Endlessly fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars I saw this film at James Dean Fest!! August 18, 2005
By Lisa
I was lucky enough to see this documentary at James Dean Fest in Marion,IN, in June 2005. It is a moving, beautiful film that I can not wait to own on September 20th. The only thing I can say to fans of James HAVE to own this film!!! It is as vital to your collection as East of Eden, Rebel, & Giant. In this film are clips of Jimmy in all of his small film roles and all his television roles. This is the complete collection of his work as an actor and a celebration of his life, put together by TRUE fans. An absolute must for any James Dean it now!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive James Dean Bio August 20, 2008
This film tells the definitive story of how Dean became the overnight sensation that he was in EAST OF EDEN. The documentation and research is impressive as well as Mr. Sheridan's tenacity in finding all of these lost gems. When will they be available on DVD?

3.0 out of 5 stars Informative but not the full story August 14, 2013
By Swas
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The documentary is mostly about James's movies and his career and less about his life. The director seemed to shy away from the stars personal life, which is a pity. The documentary is therefore not the full story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great video July 16, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video on the iconic Jimmy Dean. It shows some rare footage of him in shows/movies you wouldn't know unless you see the dvd or have read a good book on him. I love how different he was in acting, as well as a photographer and vdeo person. Had James Dean been alive today, he would have done some great director work, and photo shows. Its such a shame he had to go when he did.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive James Dean September 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
JAMES DEAN: FOREVER YOUNG is the definitive look at the life of James Dean. There are no talking heads. It is all Dean and it's a complete look at how he rose from a Pepsi commercial to his roles in EAST OF EDEN and GIANT.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have in addition to his 3 CLASSIC FILMS! September 24, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD tells his life story better than any other. Has all his short cameo clips from his early work...SAILOR BEWARE and even color footage at a SODA BAR from another film. It has a pair of COKE COMMERCIALS. Re-mastered home movie footage of JIMMY at one of the car races he entered. This footage and the way it is presented is just amazing! Looks like MARKY WINSLOW was on of the co-Producers of the film as well. This just can't be beat! MARTIN SHEEN also does a GREAT job as the narrator!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Clips, But.... August 18, 2006
JAMES DEAN -- FOREVER YOUNG is essential viewing for anyone interested in the actor; the writer/director's done a wonderful job of assembling hard-to-find film clips, particularly from Dean's early days in live tv. The screen tests with Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman are fascinating, too. (On the strength of this scene, she'd have made an interesting Abra.) My major problem with this overview? No mention of Dean's bisexuality. True, the production team needed cooperation from the Dean estate, and many of his fans probably don't want to think closely about that side of his life. But Dean's proclivities have been extensively documented in print by now, and Liz Sheridan and Pier Angeli definitely weren't the entire story. Given that much of Dean's appeal (like that of his contemporaries Brando and Clift) tempers traditional notions of American masculinity with a feminine side, seems a terrible pity to continue mythologizing a complete heterosexuality that apparently never existed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy for James Dean fans... February 10, 2006
James Dean - Forever Young is a fascinating documentary into the life of James Dean, a lot of thought & effort has obviously gone into the production of this short (around an hour in length) documentary.

My advice? Ignore any negative remarks about Forever Young from people who haven't even seen a Jimmy Dean film before (why would anyone watch a documentary on his life if they have never seen one of his films before!?)

In short, all James Dean fans need to pick both "James Dean - Forever Young" and "James Dean - Sense Memories" as they're both a fascinating watch and a wonderful compliment to the new special edition releases of "Rebel without a Cause" and "East of Eden".
