Marlon Brando screen tests for "Rebel Without a Cause" (1947)
From Open Culture: "During the 1940s, Warner Brothers bought the rights to Robert Lindner's 1944 book, "Rebel Without a Cause: The Hypnoanalysis of a Criminal Psychopath," and began turning it into a film. A partial script was written, and a 23-year old Marlon Brando was asked to do a five-minute screen test in 1947. For whatever reason, the studio abandoned the original project, and eventually revived it eight years later with a new script and a new actor — James Dean, of course. Dean's own screen test for "Rebel Without a Cause" appears here.
