James Dean – A Public Service Announcement on the stupidity of driving fast on the highway. Filmed during the making of Giant. 9and shortly before his death.

UPDATE: According to James Dean Historian Lee Raskin (see Comment below)” Dean’s mechanic, Rolf Wutherich, said the Spyder was in 4th gear traveling minimally at 75 mph”
