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.

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've always considered myself a huge fan of James Dean, so I had to see this movie. I guess I have pretty much ignored the rumors of him being gay, not because I'm homophobic but just because I didn't care that much. But this movie made me realize that that was a huge part of his life that affected everything he did and that he had to hide. James Dean had to pretend to be somebody else, and that is really sad. However, this movie wasn't sad. It wasn't exactly happy, either, but it did have an optimistic tone, probably because of the jovial music. However, this was balanced out by the color scheme. I thought the acting was superb, as well. I couldn't believe how much the main character looked like James Dean. And the girl really looked like she could have been from the 50s. If it wasn't for the great quality and modern perspective, I would have thought I was watching something old.
