    Two Photos, One Copy, and One Contact Sheet for James Dean from "Rebel" with Negatives. It was a scene that resonated with countless disillusioned teens in 1955, when James Dean as Jim Trask confronted his weak-willed father (Jim Backus) and emasculating mother (Ann Doran). Two photos (with original time/date stamp from the developing lab), a contact sheet proof, and a photocopy show the agony of this epically dysfunctional filmic family. The photos have tears in the upper right corners, but all four shots come with their negatives. Modern drama tragedy at its most excruciatingly real.
