Pic of the Day: “East of Eden” (1981) revisited

Today’s pic (and don’t forget about clicking for embiggening) revisits the television miniseries East of Eden, first broadcast on February 8, 1981. Based on the epic novel by John Steinbeck, it features a much-too-short cameo by Timothy as a fire-and-brimstone circuit-riding preacher.

As we all know by now, Tim also appeared with James Dean in the 1955 film of the same novel, as the bouncer at Kate’s brothel. It’s nice to see him on the other end of the moral spectrum here.
