5.0 out of 5 stars James Dean at his best as always, 8 Dec. 2003
This review is from: East Of Eden [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I was 14 when i looked at a saturday matinee film and became struck by a scene on a ferris wheel in which a handsome man showed his pent up feelings for his brother's girlfriend. After that i became hooked on James Dean who seemed the most beautiful,sensitive man ever. I sought out his films (sadly only three), books about him and his television work. While looking over his career i saw his talent was always outstanding. However, it was this role as Cal Trask (the Cain character in a modern update of the Cain and Able story) that was him at his best. It was a crime he did not get an oscar for it and his premature death meant he was unable to see the sucess of 'Rebel without a cause' and 'Giant'. What makes this film more meaningful is how the director, Elia Kazan, described the role of John Steinbeck's Cal being made for Dean. Jimmy being a man who had a troubled relationship with his dad as well as the actor who played his father in the film. It is an amazing film that shows how having quality actors can make a film.
