EAST OF EDEN
1955, Warner Bros., 115 min, Dir: Elia Kazan

James Dean is brilliantly cast as shy Cal, a pre-WWI teenager who can’t escape from the shadow of his perfect brother, Aaron (Richard Davalos). Cal is also a rebellious black sheep who will do almost anything to gain the love of his strict father (Raymond Massey), a desire that may destroy those around him but may also, in the end, offer him his last chance at redemption. With a great cast that includes Julie Harris, Albert Dekker, Burl Ives and a cameo by Timothy Carey. In CinemaScope!
