East of Eden Upclose by Anthea Slade

East of Eden starring James Dean and Julie Harris is indeed one of my top 10 favourite films of all time. The haunting sensitivity of Julie Harris played beside the emotional vulnerability of James Dean (Cal) a wayward Salinas Valley youth who vies and tries so hard to win the affection of his hardened father (Raymond Massey) is an emotionally overwhelming film that always brings me to tears.

The achingly beautiful sensitivity of Julie Harris to James Dean highlights the heartbreaking desperation and struggle of (Cal) James Dean to wins his fathers approval.

East of Eden based on a novel by John Steinbeck and directed by Elia Kazan is the first of the three major fims that made up James Dean’s movie legacy.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
