On Sunday 12 November at 12:30PM, the Reel McCoy Film Group will screen Robert Altman’s 1982 classic “Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean”. Members of the James Dean fan club gather on the 20th anniversary of his death. The small Texas town with the faded 5 & Dime store is close to the town of Marfa where Dean died while filming “Giant”. Tensions build among the fan club members as their reminiscences reveal confronting truths long hidden. The Jimmy Dean of the title is the reputed love child of one of the fans and Dean himself.
