In one of the most influential performances in movie history, James Dean plays Jim, the new kid in town whose loneliness, frustration and anger mirrored those of postwar teens—and still reverberates more than 50 years later. As an actor who spoke for an entire generation, James Dean brought his explosive presence to the screen in Rebel Without a Cause, a realistic journey through a turbulent teenage universe of violence and delinquency. Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo received Academy Award nominations for their achingly true performances and writer/director Nicholas Ray was also an Oscar nominee ("Best Writing"). Not surprisingly, the landmark Rebel Without a Cause was chosen as one of the all-time Top 100 American Films by the American Film Institute.
