* AuthorExistenceFailure: Not all of his work on ''Giant'' had been completed prior to his death.



* DawsonCasting: Cast as 16 year old Jim Stark in ''Rebel Without A Cause'' despite being 23 at the time. Made more obvious by the fact that Sal Mineo and Natalie Wood were the right age.



* ShortLivedBigImpact: He starred in only three Hollywood films and died in a tragic car crash shortly after finishing the third one, but his performances in ''East of Eden'' and ''Rebel Without a Cause'' (especially the latter) pretty much defined the "misunderstood bad-boy teen" image of the era.
