Quotes: The Celluloid Closet
I look back on The Fifties now and think it was halcyon. People were still being educated, there wasn't a race war on...it seems like a kind of paradise. But at the time that we were living through it, we thought that we were in a decade of such towering dullness and stupidity.
Jay Presson Allen

Richard Dyer on Rebel Without a Cause
