Rebel Summary

Rebel: Life and Legend of James Dean by Donald Spoto

James Dean starred in three great movies before his fatal motor accident: "East of Eden", "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Giant". More than any other male star, he combined the teen fantasy of rebellious non-conformity with the American dream of financial success, and in doing so he continued to maintain a tight grip on an important international fantasy. He represented to perfection what was beautifully imperfect - the damaged, vigorous, dangerously sexy, frightened soul of American boyhood.
