(From Joe Bob's Ultimate B Movie Guide)|
This is the film that defined
the culture of an entire generation, representing the bonds that
unite all troubled and troublesome teenagers, and the divisions
that separate them from the world of adults. James Dean is the
most charismatic fifties loner of them all, surpassing even
Brando (the actor he imitated), on the strength of this one
performance as the vulnerable, self-destructive, aimless outcast
Jim Stark. Also great performances by Natalie Wood, as Dean's
sensitive girlfriend, and Sal Mineo, as his confused, admiring
sidekick. One of the first great films about American young
people. With Corey Allen, Jim Backus, Dennis Hopper.
