1955 Classic "Rebel Without a Cause" Restored

Feb 10, 2014

The 1955 film “Rebel Without a Cause” directed by Nicholas Ray was instantly elevated to cult status when its heartthrob lead, James Dean tragically died in a car crash three weeks before the movie opened. Now almost 60 years later, the classic film is being digitally restored thanks to Italian luxury brand Gucci, Martin Scorsese’s esteemed Film Foundation and Warner Bros.

The digitally restored version will be unveiled November 1st, 2013 at the annual Art + Film Gala held by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). It will be introduced by Martin Scorsese, Gucci’s Creative Director, Frida Giannini and the Chief Executive of LACMA, Michael Govan.

James Dean is one of the timeless icons of American culture, and an individual we hold in high reverence at Man of the World. This new restoration should go a long way in creating a new generation of loyal fans for this monument of American film.
