Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 06/23/1993
"...[An] early Scope masterpiece....The third Oscar-winner for cinematography..."
Total Film - 03/01/2001
"...With Dean's frowning charisma intact as misunderstood new kid Jim Stark, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE has life in it yet..."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/11/2002
"James Dean's good looks and devilish charm were trumped only by his affinity for fast living..."
Premiere - 12/01/2003
"REBEL was remarkable in telling its story from the point of view of the kids, exploding the image of the juvenile delinquent."
Uncut - 06/01/2005
"All three compelling core performances, director Nicholas Ray's symbolic, vivid use of colour and the film's pace make REBEL a still-cogent depiction of alienated kids and dysfunctional families."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2005
"The film that consecrated James Dean's teen-idol image..."

Product Description:

The age-old theme of teenage violence and delinquency is given distinctive insight by the well-cast Dean-Wood-Mineo trio. Perhaps the best teen-age drama of the 1950s. Academy Award Nominations: Best Supporting Actor--Sal Mineo, Best Supporting Actress--Natalie Wood, Best Motion Picture Story.

Description by Warner Home Video:

In one of the most influential performances in movie history, James Dean plays the new kid in town whose loneliness, frustration and anger mirrored those of postwar teens - and still reverberate 50 years later. Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo were Academy Award nominees* for their achingly true performances. Director Nicholas Ray was also an Oscar nominee for this landmark chosen as one of the all-time Top 100 American Film by the American Film Institute.

Plot Synopsis:

The classic film about alienated and rebellious youth that made James Dean an indelible icon.
"Rebel without a Cause" focuses on a teenage social outcast searching for his identity. His dysfunctional parents (a milquetoast father and a cantankerous mom) can't help him and he shuns any form of authority. The young man only finds solace in the company of two fellow teenage misfits, but even they aren't able to prevent tragedy from befalling this reckless and uncontrollable anti-hero.
