Dean Ghaffari plays Sal Mineo, one of Hollywood’s forgotten rebels. Dean takes the audience on Sal’s journey through the Golden Age of Hollywood from working with the late Yul Brynner on Broadway in “The King And I” to eventually landing a role opposite James Dean in “Rebel Without A Cause,” which earned him an Oscar nomination. Mineo became an overnight sensation, at one point getting more fan mail than Elvis Presley. Subsequently, however, he saw his life unravel. The Hollywood that once welcomed him with open arms was no longer. So it goes; the bigger they are, the harder they fall. But through all his trials and tribulations, he followed his heart by doing what he loved. In essence, Sal Mineo was one of the most mysterious and misunderstood actors of his generation.
