Did You Know?


In her autobiography. "Bittersweet", Susan Strasberg claims she got an urgent call from the director that her husband was acting a little rambunctious with the actresses they were testing. He bit the last one when he kissed her. He was balking at doing the love scenes. They asked her to play the part of the 18 year old girl who defies her father. She replied that she was too old and "did not want to be the oldest ingenue in Hollywood plus I'm 30 pounds overweight" She was told her face was still thin and she could diet. Encouraged by her husband Christopher Jones who agreed she should lose weight and wanted the money, she accepted the role. See more »

Rebel Without A Cause for The 60s...
14 January 2014 | by darrinSee all my reviews

While not as well-made, or as acclaimed, there were obvious similarities between "Chubasco" & "Rebel Without A Cause." Mainly due to its star, Christopher Jones, a self-admitted Dean fanatic who beared remarkable resemblance to Dean. Jones was soon hailed as the "next James Dean" of his generation. Unfortunately, his promising career never rose above expectations. Regardless, all the Deanerisms can clearly be seen in his seminal performance. It also didn't hurt to have the daughter of Lee Strasberg as his co-star. Ultimately lending further credence to the uncanny resemblance/career path of Jones. Can only recommend to Deaners and/or curiosity seekers. Hard to come by outside of commercial t.v.
