james-deanJames Dean - the rebel

James Dean invented the role of the troubled teen, serving an an icon to generations of youth. An important symbol of 50s teen rebellion, he burned up the screen. Starring in only three feature films, his defining role was in REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. His other feature films, EAST OF EDEN and GIANT, are well regarded.

Ironically James Dean filmed a public service spot on auto safety shortly before he died in a car wreck in 1955.

James Dean was a major influence on some future superstars, including the young Steve McQueen, and Dean's look and attitude is still reflected in young actors today.

James Dean is part of an American pop culture "trinity", which also includes Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley.
