"Memeories of the past when James Dean was HOT."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This movie is a little dated now but still carries the essence Steinbeck's story with all the emotions of a bewildered teenager longing to find some personal identity within his family and to have the love he deserves from his parents.


Based on John Steinbeck's novel and directed by Elia Kazan, East of Eden is the first of three major films that make up James Dean's movie legacy. The 24-year-old idol-to-be plays Cal, a wayward Salinas Valley youth who vies for the affection of his hardened father (Raymond Massey) with his favored brother Aron (Richard Davalos). Playing off the haunting sensitivity of Julie Harris, Dean's performance earned one of the film's four Academy Award nominations.* Among the movie's stellar performances, Jo Van Fleet won the Oscar as Best Supporting Actress.

Best Picture (Drama) Golden Globe Winner 1955.
