The revolutionary film "Rebel Without a Cause" has had a profound impact on both moviemaking and youth culture -- not only upon its 1955 release but on generations since. In "Live Fast, Die Young," the complete story behind this groundbreaking film is revealed, vividly evoking the cataclysmic meeting of actors James Dean, Natalie Wood, and Sal Mineo and director Nicholas Ray -- all at crucial points in their careers as they grappled with fame, burgeoning sexuality, and increasingly reckless behavior.
Through interviews with surviving members of the cast and crew and firsthand access to both personal and studio archives, Lawrence Frascella and Al Weisel depict the explosive making of "Rebel Without a Cause," complete with never-before-seen photos by famed Dean photographer Dennis Stock. A fascinating look behind the scenes of an unforgettable American film, "Live Fast, Die Young" tells a story that is as provocative as the film itself.
