Ronald Reagan and James Dean: Rare 1954 footage

Posted on August 13, 2010 by in Movies

Ronald Reagan and James Dean acting together on a live program less than a year before Dean died. I found this in The Atlantic Magazine. Check out the live video below.

“The icon of modern American conservatism, whose rise to political prominence was galvanized by the cultural rebellion of the 1960s, fighting off an attack-at-gunpoint by the quintessential modern American rebel. But when “The Dark, Dark Hours” episode of General Electric Theater aired live from Hollywood on December 12, 1954, Ronald Reagan and James Dean were just two actors yet to find the roles that would define them.”
