Some people think he is overrated, as he only made three films and is considered an icon. But in those three films he defined himself- It is not his fault that he died..
For me, the parts he played in East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause, relate to some of the pain some teenagers go through- I know I can relate to him.

    He was an icon in his day but I'm not sure he would be today.

    I think he was a work in progress as far as acting. He showed a lot of promise. It may have been his own fault that he died. He was ticketed shortly before his car crashed.

    He was good but I think he was overrated as an actor. I would have liked to see more of acting.

    I read he was ticketed for speeding shortly before his crash. So it's likely to me he may have been at the time. If he was the one driving that is. Don't really know and there was another person in the car. Does't make it any less tragic to me but I felt like pointing it out.@"Not his fault he died."

    I read that but still, he did not know he was going to die. Any way you see it, I still find it tragic.

    But to say not his fault when you yourself do not know what really happened as if it was fact.

    Rebel Without a Cause was a good film.
