'Rebel Without a Cause'

Why: In Nicholas Ray's 1955 classic, a tortured teen hero wears a blood red jacket, his henpecked father wears a frilly apron, and high-school angst is elevated to the level of opera. At the center of everything: James Dean, who gives a fearlessly hammy performance in his most iconic role. Tonight, Rebel will be introduced by the man who wrote it: Stewart Stern, whose contributions guaranteed the film had enough creepy depth to offset the melodrama. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 8 pm, $6–$9.)
