Product Description:

Although his life abruptly ended decades ago at just 24 years old, James Dean remains one of the world's most beloved and celebrated Hollywood icons.

The two-time Award-nominated actor's enduring fame and popularity rests on just three roles as leading man (only one of which was released prior to his death), but the brooding Dean - the personification of restless mid-'50s American youth - also appeared in four other films and on popular television shows of the era.

It was just 1,734 days from Dean's first on-screen appearance to his death. James Dean: The Fast Lane is an unprecedented and comprehensive look at the little-known aspects of the legendary star's spectacularly brief career. Includes rarely seen footage of his on-air debut at just 19 years old, a 1950 commercial for Pepsi, as well as his final work, ironically a 1955 highway safety PSA filmed just 13 days before he died behind the wheel of his Porsche 550 Spyder.

Also includes 10 television appearances (1951-54) on episodes of Armstrong's Circle Theatre, Campbell Soundstage, Family Theater, General Electric Theater, Kraft Television Theater, Tales of Tomorrow and Westinghouse Studio One; and movie trailers from Fixed Bayonets (1951), Has Anyone Seen My Gal (1952), Rebel Without a Cause (1955), East of Eden (1955) and Giant (1956).
