The James Dean Story: The Early Documentary by Robert Altman




On James Dean’s 80th birthday, this film probably deserves its own little mention. The James Dean Story, a 79 minute documentary chronicling the life and times of Jimmy Dean, came out two years after the young actor’s death in 1955. Most notably, the film was directed by Robert Altman, a young director who would eventually make MASH, Nashville, The Player, Gosford Park, etc. It’s also catalogued in our collection, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, Documentaries & More.
