‘Rebel Without a Cause’ Movie Summary

Jim Stark is a troubled youth with a lot on his mind. We meet him on his first night in a new town; he and his family moved because Jim had gotten himself into some kind of trouble back at the old place. Unfortunately, he seems to be starting right back where he left off when the police pick him up for public intoxication. When he starts school the next morning, Jim meets a gang of teens who challenge him to a game of chicken. When that leads to an accident and a death, Jim wants to go to the police to confess. However, his parents refuse to let him do so. Meanwhile, the remaining gang goes looking for Jim to get revenge for their fallen leader.

  1. No one mentioned it, but East of Eden is pretty great, and maybe Dean’s best film. Directed by Elia Kazan, director of on the waterfront. rebel was directed by Nicolas Ray, who’s a pretty highly regarded director today. He did They Live By Night a few years before this film, which I think is a pretty great film. There are some similarities to rebel as well I think, even though that was a film noir.

    1. I do not believe I have watched East of Eden all the way through yet. I do not think Rebel is Dean’s best work; his “tearing me apart” line is just his most iconic line.
