Hays’d: Decoding the Classics — ‘Rebel Without a Cause’

For queer viewers, Rebel Without a Cause is seminal for Sal Mineo’s portrayal of Plato — whom he later referred to as the first gay teenager on film — but the entire movie is bathed in a gorgeously gay, Cinemascopic light. From a queer (and queer-friendly) cast and a bisexual director to a possible on-set same-sex affair and the aforementioned pioneering gay teen, Rebel remains one of the most important films in the queer film canon.
