Was James Dean's Final Scene In "Giant" (1955) Voiced By Another Actor? (video)

Days after completing his final scene as aging, drunken oil tycoon Jett Rink in "Giant"...

...James Dean was tragically killed in an auto accident.

Some of his slurred speech in that scene was later deemed difficult to understand.

Sadly, however, Dean was no longer available to re-record it.

So some of his lines in this last scene were dubbed by his actor friend, Nick Adams.

Therefore, we hear both Adams and Dean speaking during Dean's final filmed performance.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
