Two-disc collector s set includes 10 rarely seen television appearances; archival footage; interviews with family and friends; Academy Award-winner Robert Altman s documentary The James Dean Story (1957/40 minutes); and more.

'J.D.: The Fast Lane' is a nice, worthy set to showcase his TV Years. It may not have all of his TV works on it (some were lost and are not available in the archives for footage), but we get 10 full-length TV studio episodes on this set. I will say that some of the earlier episodes (such as Hill Number One) have this sort of blurry factor to it that make it slightly feel like you're watching it through a screen, and not every episode available is in restored, pristine condition (there are a few that have small jumps and white flicker/lines on the screen at times). Overall though, the presentation quality of these episodes are decent to good (for the time they were made, it's okay to give slack for them not being of a high-quality transfer).

**** The episodes available on this set, in order on both discs, are as follows:
- Hill Number One
- 10,000 Horses Singing
- Abraham Lincoln
- The Evil Within
- Something for an Empty Briefcase
- Sentence of Death
~Disc 2
- A Long Time Till Dawn
- The Bells of Cockaigne
- Harvest
- I'm a Fool
**** Included extras are:
- Pepsi commercial
- Highway Safety PSA
- The James Dean Story
- Trailers to his 3 feature films, as well as Fixed Bayonets, Sailor Beware, Has Anybody Seen My Gal, and Trouble Along the Way (all of which he had bit parts/cameos in)

> It is of important note* that 'The James Dean Story' (Robert Altman documentary) is a truncated, hops-to-the-next-scene-abruptly version, and is missing around 40 minutes from its overall runtime for unknown reasons (my guess is it was trimmed for time/space allotted on the disc).

Researched this dvd. Despite the comment of the other reviewer, was led to believe that the Robert Altman documentary "The James Dean Story" WAS in fact, the full 80+ minute version.
Received it today via Amazon who sent it to me on behalf of one of their sellers.
1. "As new" was NOT how I received it. The dvd case was broken, the 2 dvds were SIGNIFICANTLY scratched/scuffed. NO liner notes. That alone merited it being returned to Amazon.
2. More importantly (and this is why Amazon should remove it from their listings) - even though the dvd outer notes boast "includes the full-length Robert Altman documentary" - NOT !!! The version here is 40 minutes - the original was somewhere in the region of 80+ minutes.
Thanks to the original reviewer who posted here - I should have heeded the warning.
