House Without A Cause
It's not surprising that this home located near Hollywood Boulevard doesn't look very familiar; even though it can be seen in one of the most classic 1950's melodramas, it was relegated to the background. At the beginning of "Rebel Without A Cause," a drunken Jim Stark (James Dean) can be seen laying down on the street playing with a toy monkey.
The house in the background is none other than the one you see here.
One of these days I'll try to match the shot at night; first I'll need to find the toy monkey.
This fence which was once on display at the now defunct James Dean Gallery in Fairmount, Indiana was also seen in "Rebel":
A closeup of the display which shows the scene with James Dean and Sal Mineo that turned this plain old wooden fence into something that was museum quality:
