Theatrical Show produced by Dean Ghaffari
Dean Ghaffari presents a one man show that introduces one of Hollywood's forgotten rebels in Rebel With a Cause - The Life and Times of Sal Mineo. Dean takes the audience on Sal's journey through the Golden Age of Hollywood from working with the late Yul Brynner on Broadway in The King And I to eventually landing a role opposite James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause which earned him an Oscar nomination. Mineo became an overnight sensation, at one point getting more fan mail than Elvis Presley. Subsequently, however, he began to see his life unravel. The Hollywood that once welcomed him with open arms was no longer and so it goes, the bigger they are the harder they fall. But through all his trial and tribulations, he always followed his heart by doing what he loved. In essence, Sal Mineo was one of the most mysterious and misunderstood actors of his generation.
