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 »
I was lucky enough to be at the premiere of this film in Seattle... Wasn't expecting much from yet another James Dean movie but this one kind of blew me away. All of the shots are very pretty and the black and white really enhanced everything. The music was great, too, it really felt like it was in the 50s. I don't know if they were trying to suggest that James Dean was definitely gay or not but I think the point came across pretty well that he wasn't the heterosexual male sex icon that everybody thought he was. I also really enjoyed the random literary references throughout the movie. It made me feel kind of smart and classy to watch it. I really appreciated the frank way that it dealt with the sex scenes, too. It really bothers me when movies act like sex is some horrible thing even when they're showing people having sex... Anyway, I really recommend this movie. I don't know if it's going to ever be in theaters or not but if it is, you should all see it!
