I'm so grateful to Knoxvicious for creating this labor of love. Each generation as it reaches its teens, generally finds its heroes in the young men and women who are a decade older than them and exploring young adulthood. For my generation James Dean was a hero who we lost way too soon. If I were condemned to have just three movies to watch for the rest of my life, "East of Eden," "Giant," and "Rebel Without a Cause" would suit me just fine. God Bless you Jimmy, you were a rock in our cultural foundation. What a magnificent edifice it would have supported.
