About this Episode

I'm completing the DQ-early-roles 1970s-contemplate-the-1950s trilogy with September 30, 1955, an achingly adolescent meditation on how the death of James Dean allowed John Boy Walton to feel his own losses...or something. James Bridges's (The Paper Chase, Perfect) melodramatic tale of a tragic afternoon isn't entirely successful, but it does bring us a Breaking Away pre-union AND our first Dennis Quaid sex growl.
