Director George Stevens' sweeping saga of family conflict and social consciousness based on Edna Ferber's best seller is presented here for the first time on Blu-ray. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards®, with a win for Stevens*, and starring Rock Hudson as rancher Bick Benedict, Elizabeth Taylor as his wife Leslie and James Dean (in his final film role) as nouveau oil baron Jett Rink, this tale of three generations of Texans remains both grand and intimate.
Based on John Steinbeck's novel and directed by award-winning director Elia Kazan, East of Eden was James Dean's breakout big-screen performance, one that will forever be remembered in Hollywood history. The emotionally charged film tells the story of lonely youth Cal (Dean), who vies for the affection of his hardened father (Raymond Massey) and favored brother, Aron (Richard Davalos). The film received four Academy Award® nominations, and Jo Van Fleet won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar®* for her role as Cal's wayward mother.
As an actor who spoke for an entire generation, James Dean brought his explosive presence to the screen in Nicholas Ray's "tense, exciting melodrama" (Variety). Oscar-nominees and Golden Globe-winners Natalie Wood ("Splendor in the Grass") and Sal Mineo ("Exodus") both earned Oscar nominations for their powerful performances in this realistic journey through a turbulent teenage universe of violence and delinquency. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing. The Library of Congress honored this classic by including it in the National Film Registry. Recently selected by the prestigious American Film Institute as one of the 75 greatest American films of all time.
