Small But Mighty Rebels!

Rebel Cause – We should all have one!

Today the Raleigh/Cary TCM Backlot Chapter had its first official outing. We met up to see Rebel Without A Cause (1955), labeled Rebel Cause on the theater marquee. (We had a chuckle about that one.)

It was good to see the film on the big screen. For me, I think my appreciation of James Dean’s emotional range was enhanced by it.

After the film, a very lively, coffee-driven post-movie discussion ensued among our small but mighty group of classic movie loving rebels. From our impressions of the film to our stories from TCM cruises and festivals, it’s clear we have found “our people.”

Looking forward to our next get together!
