Federal Chicken Run


Rebel Without a Cause (1955), dir. Nicholas Ray

“Buzz” Reid in his beige 1941 Chevrolet Special DeLuxe Coupe has challenged “James Dean” Boehner, driving a distinctly cooler black 1949 Mercury Club Coupe, to a Chicken Run straight at the abyss of financial default.

Which political leader will jump out his car first? Doesn’t Buzz realize that Jimmy Dean is the hero and is bound to win? Watch out for the cuff strap of your leather jacket on the car door handle, Senator Reid!

One Feedback on "Federal Chicken Run"

Wendell Dowling

Dean’s car is a ’46 Ford Coupe, not a ’49 Merc. And the park lights above the grille distinguish it from a ’47 or ’48 Ford.
