Description by OLDIES.com:

SENTENCE OF DEATH
From 1953, this Studio One live broadcast proved to be one of James Dean's major breakthrough roles in an already rising career. Dean is a down-on-his-luck ex-con who somehow gets fingered for a robbery/murder at a sleazy diner. With original Westinghouse commercials.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN
Live Studio One broadcast from 1952. An ambitious epic rendering of the Lincoln saga, from the election through the tumultuous Civil War years. James appears near the end of the program in the crucial role of William Scott, an exhausted "everyman" soldier court-martialed for falling asleep on duty. His personal encounter with Lincoln lays the foundation for the show's finale.

THE JAMES DEAN STORY
In the wake of Dean's sudden death, this project was originally envisioned as a major studio bio-pic. No less than Elvis himself lobbied and campaigned endlessly for the lead role. Director Robert Altman wanted Marlon Brando for narrator. A fascinating "study in pictures" and lots of interviews with family members, Dean's favorite bartenders, and some behind the scenes outtakes from Dean's major features. The focus here is more on the "human being," his original paintings and sculptures and a letter Dean wrote to his 10-year-old cousin a few months before his death.
