Nicholas Ray’s (They Live By Night) vivid portrait of the struggles of 1950s teenagers defined James Dean (East of Eden) as an actor in what would become the most memorable role of his tragically short career.

Expertly shot in CinemaScope with a wild palate of bright colors, Rebel without a Cause is a yearning exploration of disillusioned youth and where they hope to belong within a dysfunctional suburban America.
