Three features; 'East Of Eden' finds an American youth driven to desperation trying to win his father's love. Based on the classic Steinbeck novel ... a modern story of Cain and Abel set against the approach of World War One. Also 'Rebel Without A Cause' and 'Giant'.

This DVD Box Set includes all 3 of James Deans major film roles: East of Eden (available for the first time on DVD), Rebel Without a Cause (new two-disc Special Edition) and Giant (two-disc DVD Special Edition). The DVDs are filled with special features, including new documentaries, commentaries, deleted scenes, Behind the Scenes segments, screen tests and more.

Rebel Without A Cause (1955) - In one of the most influential performances in movie history, James Dean plays Jim Stark, the new kid in town whose loneliness, frustration and anger mirrored those of postwar teens - and still reverberates 50 years later.

Natalie Wood (as Jim's girl Judy) and Sal Mineo (as Jim's tag along pal Plato) were Academy Award nominees for their achingly true performances. Director Nicholas Ray was also an Oscar nominee for this landmark chosen as one of the all-time Top 100 American Films by the American Film Institute.

East of Eden (1955) - The 24-year old idol-to-be plays Cal, a wayward Salinas Valley youth who vies for the affection of his hardened father (Raymond Massey) with his favored brother Aron (Richard Davalos). Playing off the haunting sensitivity of Julie Harris, Dean's performance earned one of the film's four Academy Award nominations.

Giant (1956) - Based on Edna Ferber's best-selling family saga about a Texas family of ranchers and oilmen, Giant stars Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and Dennis Hopper. In his final film role, Dean stars as wrangler turned oil baron Jett Rink.

Directed by the legendary George Stevens, this sprawling epic received ten Academy Award nominations including a Best Actor nod for Dean. Giant held its place as Warner Bros.' top-grossing feature film for more than 20 years following its initial 1956 release.
