LONELY PLACES: A NICHOLAS RAY CENTENNIAL
REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE

Director Nicholas Ray (1911–1979) is honored with a three-night series of his films, starting with this James Dean classic.

REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE
1955, Warner Brothers, 111 min, Dir: Nicholas Ray

Director Nicholas Ray’s mythic saga of teen disobedience and alienation in 1950s America made James Dean and co-star Natalie Wood instant cultural icons. Ray’s use of color and the Cinemascope screen remains groundbreaking, rivaling Hitchcock for striking frame compositions and bold symbolism. Co-starring Sal Mineo, Jim Backus and Dennis Hopper, and featuring the Griffith Park Observatory. "...The film still breathes like a hurt, brooding animal. It's an indelible vision of a pretty 1950s America with a searing crack in it … a movie so audacious it can only be poetry, a kind of cinematic free verse…" - Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
