This less-than-a-minute basically newsreel really doesn't need any type of star rating as it simply doesn't do enough to warrant that. What we basically get is some quite footage of what appears to be a party thrown for the cast and crew of GIANT before they left for filming. We get to see Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Jack Warner, George Stevens and James Dean quickly and that's pretty much it. You're certainly not going to learn anything new by watching this but at the same time it's really irresistible because you get to see these legends. Just take a look at the scene where the three stars are cutting a cake. Hudson and Taylor appear to be game but poor Dean looks as if he's bored out of his mind and wishing he was somewhere else. At less than a minute there's certainly nothing here that will educate you on the film but I'm sure the attractive cast at least got people's interest started early.
