I taped this film off of a PBS affiliate in Upstate New York in 1991 and have kept the movie for all these years. This film looked rather low-budget (for a film that was 16 years of age in 1991, the color was clearly faded and the quality of the film used seemed to have degraded), but was pretty effectual in showing Dean's life. The interviews with those who worked with Dean are interesting and the music used in the film (mostly 1970s rock) adds a nice element to the movie. I would have liked to have seen interviews with people who may have known Dean in Fairmount, Indiana (whether it be relatives or others who knew him). Most of the people interviewed in this film were involved with Dean in his acting days. However, overall this is not a bad film.
