Which I saw for the first time in 1955 aged 5 at the Star in Brooklyn, where my mother and I spent that hot summer. I knew no English so I could only view the images, some of them indelible: the opening shot of Dean sitting curbside as a woman garbed in black walked behind him and he turned to watch her; his conversation with the barmaid (Lois Smith!); his confrontation with his mother and her arthritic hands as she threw him out of her room; the Ferris wheel sequence with Abra; but I had no clue what was going on! Not until I saw the film again in 1965, and by then not only did I understand the dialogue in English, but the film was also subtitled in Spanish! This was in my boarding school in Puerto Rico, by the way, where I was programming the films at age 15. I was really surprised by how many scenes had been imprinted in my young memory. I loved the film; the performances; the direction; the music. The Warnercolor hadn't yet faded 10 years later so it was still easy to appreciate the cinematography.I re-watched the Blu-ray disc of East Of Eden yesterday for the first time since I bought the disc in 2013. I've always liked the film and have never complained about it dealing with only one part of John Steinbeck's novel which I also like a lot. Jo Van Fleet was a superb actress! I wished she'd made more films.
