Taylor, Dean, Hopper, Hudson

A sprawling family saga, with James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Dennis Hopper and Rock Hudson – what more could you ask for? The performances are outstanding, and the Texas landscape is just plain beautiful.

Let’s not forget the film also deals interestingly with both racial and class differences.

Dean's career ends with a bang...

Hmmm... there were a lot of things that I thought were pure genius about this film. However, in other ways, I was quite disappointed. Where I thought Giant was awesome was obviously the fantastic acting and directing. Also, it had absolutely breathtaking art direction and cinematography. On the other hand where I was slightly disappointed was that the scenes and pretty much the whole film was a bi... read more

Since it was the last movie starring James Dean that I hadn't seen so far, I was really eager to see this flick. Well, even though it turned out to be pretty good, I can't say it really blew me away though. I mean, there was some very good stuff and it could have been a great movie but it didn't completely worked in my opinion. First of all, this movie will be forever remembered for Dean's perform... read more

Description: Sprawling, epic tale of a wealthy Texas rancher and his wife, their descendants and their life together over 25 years. Bick Benedict met his future wife Leslie while on a trip East to buy breeding stock, returning home with a bride. Living on a half-million acre ranch takes some getting used to for Leslie as does the rough and tumble lifestyle. They have children who have their own minds and are apt to disappoint their parents over their life choices. As Leslie says at one point, you can't live their lives for them you can only raise them. Bick Benedict's rival is a former ranch hand, Jett Rink, who inherits a tract of land from ... (more)

gypsyflair posted a review 1 year, 3 months ago

“The wide angle shots of the Texas plains are gorgeous, and the star power overwhelms in this masterpiece of George Steven's distinguished career. The story slowly and methodically unravels the characters and shows their strengths and weaknesses. The performances are nothing short of magnificent. Hudson and Taylor are dynamic and have great chemistry together. The supporting actors are good as well, but the best performance belongs to James Dean, in his final role before dying tragically young. Every scene he is in is so heartbreaking, so painful, and so tender it moves you every time you see him.” read more

First of all, this movie will be forever remembered for Dean's performance and while he was indeed very good, his character was actually the 3rd wheel in this romance.
