Biography of the young American icon and actor James Dean, tragically killed on the verge of a meteoric career in a sports car accident in September, 1955. Film includes rare archival footage and candid interviews with close friends like William Bast and Betsy Palmer, as well as Dean's family members. Dean is portrayed as a person capable of great charm, but prone to mood swings and rages. Sexually ambivalent and single minded about his career, he is seen as vastly talented, mercurial, though ultimately a profoundly loyal friend. Written by Paul Huson
