There is a brief shot of a record player in the apartment just after James Dean moves in with his roommate. It shows a V-M Corporation 1200 series record changer made specifically for General Electric record players. The 1200 series wasn't introduced until around 1955, and this particular model wasn't produced until several years after that, circa 1960. Also, the record player appears to be a stereo. Stereo records and players premiered around 1958. See more »

Well, 2 minutes into this film and you become aware that this is stylized gay porn. Not meaning to be demeaning, because such knowledge should help some to go straight to net-flicks for 93 minutes, and others might look for something else, particularly for a straight-date flick. Whereas there have been a few testimonials that Dean was Bi; much of the evidence suggests Dean was more of a career opportunist than lustful, as regards gay activity. This film illustrates a level of gay activity that could only have been extracted from an autobiography that doesn't exist. Way too much emphasis is placed on Dean's dubious gay connections for career success. We're supposed to take Mishory's word for it. If you really appreciate the level of Dean's work, then avoid this stylized junk.
