Nicholas Ray "wanted a Romeo and Juliet feeling about Jim and Judy, and their families. Romeo and Juliet has always struck me as the best play written about juvenile delinquents."

Rebel Without a Cause was released in France as La Fureur de Vivre (The Fury of Life) and in Germany as Denn Sie Wissen Nicht Was Sie Tun (For They Know Not What They Do).

Rebel Without a Cause gave birth to a whole movie subgenre- the juvenile delinquent film, which includes such colorful titles as Teenage Doll(1957), T-Bird Gang (1959), High School Confidential (1958), and even I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957), in which an angst-ridden Michael Landon seeks help for his uncontrollable anger through hypnotherapy, unwittingly unleashing the beast within.

Director Tony Richardson's 1962 British drama The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner is also known in Europe as Rebel With a Cause.

In addition to James Dean's premature death, Sal Mineo and Natalie Wood all met tragic fates. Sal Mineo was murdered in West Hollywood in 1976, while Wood mysteriously drowned in Catalina Bay near her yacht in 1981. Nick Adams died in 1968 at the age of 41 from undisclosed reasons.
