buzz gunderson

not exactly a household name. however, it was buzz who antagonized then befriended the new kid in town, jim stark. j.d. played 'jim', corey allen played 'buzz' and the rest is nothing less than the iconic red jacket.
corey still acts and he has over 70 credits as a director. i thought he was totally happening in 'rebel without a cause.' perfectly uncomfortable and very real.

photos: 'where's buzz?' natalie wood, dennis hopper and james dean/james and corey deliver dialogue that created an eternal echo:
Buzz Gunderson: You know something? I like you.
Jim Stark: Why do we do this?
Buzz Gunderson: You've gotta do something. Don't you?
