I saw "Giant" a few years ago on AMC. "Giant" was a powerhouse of a movie when it was release in 1956. It's a film as big as Texas. It's about a family who moved from Maryland to Texas and see their lives changed for either thge better or worse. Rock Hudson plays Bick Benedict who is the leader of the clain fighting against his rival Jett Rink. He is played by James Dean, who died after this film was made. Oil wasn't the only thing that the clan was fighting for. They were divided over racial issues. Bick's son Jordan (Dennis Hopper) married a latino woman, further spliting the family apart. When I saw "Giant" a few years ago, I din't know whatever to like the film or love it. But toward the end of the film, and I won't reveal the ending, Are the most powerful 15 minutes in film history. This is one of the best film that came from Director George Steavens, which won an Academy Award for Best Director. It was also nominated for Best Picture, but "Around the World in 80 Days" won. If you got three hours to spare, why not see "Giant." You glad you did.
