JOSHUA TREE, 1951 is an intimate portrait of James Dean on the cusp of achieving notoriety as both a great actor and an American icon. Set primarily in the early 1950s and focusing on Dean's experiences as an up-and-coming actor in Los Angeles, the film is a series of revealing and sometimes dreamlike vignettes that blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present a pivotal moment in a remarkable life. Written by
Co-star Edward Singletary, Jr., prepared for his role as Roger (based on Rogers Brackett) by spending weekends in Laguna Beach with a surviving long-time friend of Brackett's. See more »
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 »
This movie is simply horrendous! From start to finish, I had trouble staying focused on what was going on. The dialog, and the story in general was boring and unbelievable. Add that to the fact that the actors were terrible, and you get a real mess. James Preston, while handsome, was no James Dean, by any stretch of the imagination. His hair is too long, he looks nothing like Dean in the face, and his mannerisms are deplorable. And it is not sexy, if that was the intent. The movie features long lustful looks at naked and half naked men and women, but hasn't one ounce of sensual appeal. A waste of 93 minutes. You've been warned. This movie is not recommended by me.
