East Of Eden

Based on John Steinbeck’s novel and directly 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 with his favoured brother Aron. 

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.
