"Jim Stark...a kid from a 'good family' - what makes him tick like a bomb?" James Dean stars in the definitive story of teenage angst. From the first UK release in 1955. N.B. There are high quality bootlegs on this version that date from the 1970's and are often mistaken for originals. This is guaranteed original. After moving to a new town, troublemaking teen Jim Stark (James Dean) is supposed to have a clean slate, although being the new kid in town brings its own problems. While searching for some stability, Stark forms a bond with a disturbed classmate, Plato (Sal Mineo), and falls for local girl Judy (Natalie Wood). However, Judy is the girlfriend of neighbourhood tough, Buzz (Corey Allen). When Buzz violently confronts Jim and challenges him to a drag race, the new kid's real troubles begin.
