The Complete James Dean

4

The shockingly brief CV of the iconic Jimmy Dean in one box set: Elia Kazan's moving adaptation of John Steinbeck's Cain and Abel story, East Of Eden, Nicholas Ray's innovative youthquake pic Rebel Without A Cause and George Stevens' melodrama Giant. The latter's lumbering but shows the star ageing from 20 to 60 as ranch-hand turned oil millionaire Jet Rink, revealing Dean's raw, mercurial talent was just beginning to flower when he was tragically killed in a car crash in 1955. He was only 24.
