View the Oscar winning film Giant (1956) at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 25 at the Allen Public Library. Directed by George Stevens, starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean, Giant captures the essence of Texas on a staggering scale as it chronicles the life and times of cattleman Jordan "Bick" Benedict, his young society wife, Leslie, and three generations of land-rich sons.
Giant was the last of James Dean’s three films as a leading actor, and earned him his second and last Academy Award nomination. He was killed in car accident before the film was released. In 2005, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
The film’s director George Stevens garnered an Oscar for this cinematic masterpiece.
