One thought on “The James Dean Story (1957)

  1. Lee Raskin says:

    The James Dean Story, directed by the late Robert Altman, was the first documentary — with family, friends, actor interviews just a year after James Dean’s tragic death. It portrays Jimmy as he was…just 24 years old at death and just becoming known for his unique acting ability on the BIG screen. There’s wonderful archival footage of Jimmy with interviews from family members and close friends from Fairmount, NYC, and LA. Over fifty-five years later, this B&W documentary still lives on along with James Dean’ s iconic legend. Should also see an updated documentary that especially depicts James Dean’s passion for speed and his racing endeavors….James Dean At High Speed, (SpeedTV documentary video, 1997).
