Abstract:

Sal Mineo is probably best known for his Academy Award-nominated turn opposite James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and his tragic murder at age 37. In this new biography filled with candid interviews with both Mineo's closest female and male lovers and never-before-published photographs, Michael Gregg Michaud tells the full story of this remarkable. One of the hottest stars of the 1950s, Mineo grew up as the son of Sicilian immigrants in a humble Bronx flat. On Broadway from age eleven, his life offstage was just as exhilarating. But by the 1960s, a series of professional missteps and an increasingly tumultuous private life reversed his fortunes. In the late sixties and early seventies, struggling to reinvent himself from an aging teen idol, he began directing and producing controversial off-Broadway plays and found happiness with male actor Courtney Burr. Tragically, on the cusp of turning a new page in his life, Mineo was killed in a botched robbery.
