GUCCI, THE FILM FOUNDATION AND WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT EXTEND COMMITMENT TO PRESERVING CINEMA HISTORY WITH THE RESTORATION OF NICHOLAS RAY’S REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE

MILAN, Italy and LOS ANGELES, California – Gucci, The Film Foundation and Warner Bros. Entertainment are pleased to announce the 2013 restoration of Nicholas Ray’s Rebel Without a Cause (1955).  The new 4K digital restoration, which was restored by Warner Bros. in association with Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation, and funded by Warner Bros., Gucci and The Film Foundation, will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Bing Theater on November 1, 2013. The film will be introduced by Martin Scorsese, who will be joined by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini and LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director Michael Govan as co-hosts of the evening.

The following evening, LACMA will honor Scorsese along with David Hockney at the third annual Art Film Gala, co-chaired by Leonardo DiCaprio and Eva Chow.  For the third consecutive year, Gucci continues its longstanding commitment to LACMA as the presenting sponsor of the Art Film Gala, with Creative Director Frida Giannini serving as Gala Host Committee Chair.

NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION
Nicholas Ray’s iconic film tells the story of a troubled teen, Jim Stark (James Dean), who moves to a new town and quickly makes enemies with the local high school gang. Set within a 24 hour timeframe, the audience follows Jim, Judy (Natalie Wood) and Plato (Sal Mineo) as they struggle with friends, families and authority.  A series of emotional and violent events bring the teens together, and they find in each other the family they've been seeking.
The film immortalized James Dean; launched the Hollywood careers of Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, and Dennis Hopper; and captured the zeitgeist of the 1950s through the prism of teenage angst.

RESTORATION NOTES
The restoration was completed from an 8K scan of the original CinemaScope (widescreen 2.55:1) camera negative at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI). Due to color fading and the heavy physical damage the original camera negative sustained as a result of its popularity and numerous theatrical re-releases, it could no longer yield an acceptable photochemical print. The camera negatives for reels 3 and 4 were discarded by the studio many years ago as they had been entirely damaged in printing. Reels 7 and 8 were extremely fragile and had sustained heavy damage in the perforations throughout the reels. For the restoration, Warner Bros. scanned and recombined YCM separation master positives for the missing camera negative sections.
They also used the YCMs to replace sections of damaged picture negative in reels 1, 2, 6 and 7. The original Technicolor dye-transfer answer print was used for color reference.

The stereo soundtrack was reconstructed at Chace Audio by Deluxe from the magnetic soundtrack stripes of release prints. The original stereo soundtrack master had been erased for re-use by the studio. (This was a common practice for most studios at the time, as it was difficult to obtain good quality magnetic stock.)
