James Dean: Behind The Scenes Shots

James Dean: Behind The Scenes Shots

As well as having one of the world's most photogenic faces and dying far too young, it's easy to forget that James Dean was the lead actor in three films in the Fifties, earning him two post-humous Oscar nominations and a stellar position in pop culture history in the process.

Now approaching Sixty years since the three pictures - Rebel Without A Cause, East of Eden and Giant - were filmed, this week sees their re-release in as close to their original quality as it's possible to get, having been restored in 4K by Warner Bros.

As director Martin Scorcese said at the first showing of the restored print of Rebel Without A Cause: “There we were, and it was speaking directly to us, the teenagers, the adolescents. It was like a secret language that existed in the film... Seeing it for the first time was overwhelming.”

If you can't catch one yourself, these rarely seen before stills go at least some way to revealing one of cinema's briefest but brightest screen careers.

Park Circus is showing Rebel Without A Cause, East of Eden and Giant at various locations in the UK throughout 2014
