Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Though he enjoyed a nearly three-decade, award-winning career as a television director, a single film - 1955's "Rebel Without a Cause" - assured Corey Allen's lasting fame. Allen played Buzz Gunderson, the picture's smirking heel, whose bullying of James Dean's Jim Stark culminated in a lethal hot rod race. The film's iconic status ensured Allen work in later years, but he turned away from acting to direct and produce for television from the late 1960s through the mid-1990s, most notably on "Hill Street Blues" (NBC, 1981-87) and "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (syndicated, 1987-1994). Allen's passing in 2010 was mourned by "Rebel" fans who paid tribute to one of the last surviving cast members of that defining youth culture film.
