Before the word 'cool' was part of the American vernacular James Dean defined it. Rebel Without a Cause was the antidote to the clean-cut, cardigan wearing teenager of the '50s, and became an icon to all those who opposed the establishment. With the help of archival photographs mixed with rare screen and wardrobe tests, this video shows a private side of the Hollywood legend who died far too young. Highlights include home movies and interviews with such famed actors as Eli Wallach The Magnificent Seven Joanne Woodwardhe Three Faces of Eve and Giant co-star Dennis Hopper.
