Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

Rebel Without A Cause
In one of the most influential performances in movie history, James Dean plays the new kid in town whose loneliness, frustration and anger mirrored those of postwar teens - and still reverberate today. Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo were Academy Award nominees for their achingly true performances.

East Of Eden
A wayward Salinas Valley youth (James Dean) vies for the affection of his hardened father (Raymond Massey) with his favored brother (Richard Davalos). Julie Harris and 1955 Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner Jo Van Fleet costar in this adaptation of John Steinbeck's novel.

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof
Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize play thunders across the screen in a powerful film adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor as frustrated Southern belle wife Maggie the Cat and Paul Newman as her disillusioned ex-athlete husband.

A Streetcar Named Desire: The Original Director's Version
Four Academy Awards - including three for acting! Elia Kazan directs the landmark movie of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize play about the clash between brutish Stanley Kowalski (Marlon Brando) and his dreamy sister-in-law Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh).

      Comments about this product:

      These two disks contain 4 of the best dramas, period, from the 1950's. They also contain 4 of the best dramas ever made regardless of time period. Classic casts, fantastic scripts that could well be renade for modern times, the perfect directors for each as made. These films are still used as reference materials and study in film schools today. The posted cost is a true pittance as the contents are so very rewarding to even casual viewers for such actors as Taylor, Newman and Dean. Come see what the big deal is about James Dean, Liz Taylor (so young yet so mature) and Paul Newman's eyes. You could not find a better reward for your hard earned money than this package. Get it today.

          I am so glad that TCM has put 4 movies together. I have only watched Rebel Without a Cause, but I really badly want to see the others. I can't wait to watch them.
