"I wanted to give him an uppercut for his arrogance and to get him to lift his head. He was still looking at his boots. He'd lit the cigarette and smoke was drifting past his face. It's hard to tell from the top of someone's head, but I was sure that I know him from somewhere..."

And that's how Browning meets James Dean.

Browning's almost past it, teaching punk would-be actors to fall off horses. When the "toxic little son of a bitch", Jimmy Dean, roars in on his "sickle", it's the beginning of an odd-couple alliance: they're both in trouble and needing help. In Marfa, Mexico, where Dean, Rock Hudson, Liz Taylor - and Browning - are on location, the movie's not the only thing being shot.

Is this the end for Browning?
