James Dean Ultimate Collection

East of Eden


Quote: Based on John Steinbeck’s novel and directed by award-winning director Elia Kazan,

East of Eden

was James Dean’s breakout big-screen performance, one that will forever be remembered in Hollywood history. The emotionally charged film tells the story of lonely youth Cal (Dean), who vies for the affection of his hardened father (Raymond Massey) and favored brother, Aron (Richard Davalos). The film received four Academy Award® nominations, and Jo Van Fleet won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar®* for her role as Cal’s wayward mother.

James Dean Ultimate Collection

Giant


Quote: Director George Stevens’ sweeping saga of family conflict and social consciousness based on Edna Ferber’s best seller is presented here for the first time on Blu-ray. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards®, with a win for Stevens*, and starring Rock Hudson as rancher Bick Benedict, Elizabeth Taylor as his wife Leslie and James Dean (in his final film role) as nouveau oil baron Jett Rink, this tale of three generations of Texans remains both grand and intimate.

James Dean Ultimate Collection

Rebel without a Cause


Quote: In one of moviedom's most influential roles, James Dean is Jim, the new kid in town whose loneliness, frustration and anger mirrored those of postwar teens – and reverberates 40 years later.
Special Features:
  • Three behind-the-cameras segments from the Warner Bros. Presents TV series (including a "safe-driving" interview withdrawn from airing following Dean's September 30, 1955 death) about

    Rebel Without a Cause

  • A documentary segment exclusive to this Warner Bros. Classics edition contains recently recovered screen tests and outtakes that show intriguing variations on what ended up in the final film.
