The Legend of James Dean - 3 VHS box set PG

£9.99

Product description

This 3-VHS box set contains all three of the films starring James Dean (1931-1955).

East of Eden
Elia Kazan's classic adaptation of Steinbeck's novel, set in a small farming valley in California in 1917. Two brothers rival for the love of their stern, overbearing, widowed father (Raymond Massey). However, when Cal (James Dean), the rejected 'rebel' son, discovers that his mother (Jo Van Fleet) is not dead but running a nearby brothel, he decides to tell his brother (Richard Davalos). This spiteful decision soon leads to the destruction of his relationship with his brother, who in a drunken frenzy runs off to enlist in an army unit being shipped overseas to the battlefields of France. Unable to bear the loss of his favourite son, Cal's pacifist father breaks down completely. The film was nominated for four Oscars with Van Fleet winning for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Kazan also won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Drama, and Dean was posthumously given a Golden Globe Special Achievement Award for Best Dramatic Actor.
Also starring Julie Harris, Burl Ives
Produced and directed by Elia Kazan

Rebel Without a Cause
Director Nicholas Ray's classic drama about juvenile delinquents starring James Dean, Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo. The storyline takes place over a 24-hour period and follows Jim Stark (Dean), a restless teenager always in trouble with the law. His mother smothers him, while his father is weak and ineffectual and the family has only recently moved to Los Angeles to try and save Jim from a life of crime. However, when Jim is picked up for being drunk and disorderly he notices Judy (Wood) at the police station and determines to ask her on a date at high school the next day. This leads him into conflict with Judy's boyfriend, Buzz (Corey Allen). He is determined to prove himself with his new-found 'friends' by taking part in switchblade fights and a 'chickie' game where cars race to the edge of a seaside cliff. The film was nominated for three Oscars, including nods for Wood and Mineo.
Also starring Jim Backus, Ann Doran, William Hopper, Rochelle Hudson, Edward Platt, Frank Mazzola and Dennis Hopper.

Giant (Stereo Hi-Fi)
Giant was nominated for 10 Academy Awards with director George Stevens winning his second Oscar for this ambitious, grandly realized epic of the changing socio-economic (and physical) landscape of modern Texas, based on Edna Ferber’s best-selling novel. Triple Academy Award winner Elizabeth Taylor (Butterfield 8, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) stars alongside 4-time Golden Globe winner Rock Hudson (Oscar nominated for his role in Giant) and Golden Globe winner James Dean (Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden).

Living up to its title, everything in this picture is big, from the running time to the sprawling ranch location and the high-powered stars. Rock Hudson stars as the confident, stubborn young ranch baron Jordan ‘Bick’ Benedict, who woos and wins the hand of Southern belle Leslie (Elizabeth Taylor), a seemingly demure young beauty who proves to be Bick’s match after she settles into the family homestead. The film sees James Dean’s final performance before his tragic death, as poor former ranch hand Jett Rink, who strikes oil and transforms himself into a flamboyant millionaire playboy, earning a second posthumous Academy Award nomination. The talented supporting cast includes Mercedes McCambridge as Bick’s frustrated sister, put out by the new woman of the house, and with Carroll Baker and Dennis Hopper as the Benedict’s rebellious children.
Co-starring Jane Withers, Robert Nichols and Chill Wills.
