James Dean has had more biographical films made about him than almost any other actor in Hollywood. This is a Iworthwhile documentary for the wealth of unseen early television shows in which Dean learned his trade. Well researched and edited, it took Sheridan almost 10 years to make.Narated by acclaimed actor Martin Sheen who has always been a huge Dean fan, once quoting: "There were only two people in the fifties: Elvis Presley who changed the music, and James Dean who changed our lives". The rare archival early television performances showcase Dean's acting prowess before his meteoric success arriving on the big screen in his iconic roles, first in 'East of Eden' then 'Rebel Without a Cause' and culminating in his final role in 'Giant'. Filming had just finished before his tragic automobile accident. Also featuring well sourced photographs from his early years raised on a farm in Fairmount Indiana and as a struggling actor in New York. A 50th Anniversary Tribute, the documentary showcased at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.
From small-screen to big-screen, a revealing documetary!
