Pic of the Day: “East of Eden” (1955) revisited

We close the work week with another look at Elia Kazan‘s East of Eden (1955).  Joe the bouncer drags off Cal Trask (James Dean) after the latter’s confrontation with his mother, brothel madam Kate (Jo Van Fleet).

In his earlier scene with Dean, Timothy’s delivery was apparently not to Kazan’s liking. He had Tim’s voice dubbed over by another actor, reportedly Albert Dekker (who also appears in the film). However, you can hear snatches of Tim’s real voice in this scene as he drags Dean out into the hall and starts slugging him.
