Dom's Video Pick of the Week
Here's a classic from 1956 that just barely missed winning the Best Picture Oscar over "Around the World in 80 Days."
"Giant" is a sprawling epic covering the life of a Texas cattle rancher and his family as they cope with the influx of oil prospecting throughout their region.
Starring big screen legends Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson, "Giant" was also the swan song of James Dean (Dean died in a car wreck just after filming commenced).
Check this one out to get a great taste of what the Golden Age of Hollywood was really about. The sets are magnificent, the acting top-notch, and the story full of emotion and heart.
