A young and very intense Sal Mineo
21 July 2016 | by som1950See all my reviews

Sal Mineo was born in 1939, and in 1956 was the right age for the Studio One original of "Dino." (also written by Reginal Rose, directed by Paul Nickell). He had a lot of emoting to do, wound up very tight from surviving reform school (where he was placed at the age of twelve) and a brutish father (Rudy Bond). A year after "Rebel without a Cause," for which Mineo received an Oscar nomination, he took on a role more like that James Dean played than the one he had played, with Pat DeSimone being the younger boy looking up to Mineo's Dino. Also, Dino connected with a girl, albeit Toni Halloran was considerably less glamorous than Natalie Wood. Ralph Meeker played the therapist Dino resists. The teleplay is quite upbeat, for all the stürm und drang of the needy but prickly parolee.

Mineo was nominated for an Emmy and reprised the role in a 1957 movie version with Brian Keith as the therapist and DeSimone reprising the role of the younger brother and gang member.
