Overwrought, often splendid Kazan version of the Steinbeck novel. The movie's chief distinction is the amazing debut of rebellious, romantic James Dean.

In short, there is energy and intensity but little clarity and emotion in this film. It is like a great, green iceberg: mammoth and imposing but very cold.

East of Eden (1955) is an updated telling of the Biblical story of rival brothers, Cain and Abel and a paradise lost.

James Dean is still the main reason why should we enjoy this very good example of 1950s cinema.
