James Dean: The brief, but mythical, life and career of film acting legend James Dean is dramatized in this biographical 2001 feature, originally produced for cable television. Dean is portrayed here as a hard worker and wild man, yet a sensitive lost soul whose own turbulent life mirrored the roles he took on his short, but greatly influential career. Dean is played by James Franco under the direction of Hollywood veteran Mark Rydell, a friend of Dean during his life. Rydell's insights provide an especially insightful look at studio politics and procedure in the 1950s.

The person who directed this was a friend of James Dean and why would he change a well established fact that the other automobile in the accident was a truck...NOT A CAR !!!!!! I will never understand why they do that in the film industry. Artistic license my ass !!!!!

I thought this was going to be way better than i thought. Plus the movie was made on educational guess....really???? that's the dumbest thing ever. They could've done a lot more with this film than they did.

love James Dean but this was too short.The story could have been much better the "get rid of the the bike don't buy the car" not a lot about James Dean and also sorry his films I have seen not used to him being a ginger.Franco looked like him with out the ginger hair sorry just used to him having brown hair( James Dean) and eye's and him only doing the one film this makes his life seem less then it was :(

Really good movie. James Franco in my opinion is highly underrated. His performance as James Dean was great, he made it seem so real. All in all a great movie.
