While James Dean is the most notable actor from Rebel Without a Cause, Corey Allen the guy who gets into the knife fight with james Dean has died at the age of 75 in his Hollywood home.
Corey Allen’s character, Buzz Gunderson, exits Rebel Without a Cause, when his car plunges from the cliff in the “chicken run” scene of the movie. His portrayal of his character in Rebel Without a Cause has provided fans of this movie with two of the most memorable scenes.
I remember watching Rebel Without a Cause several times in my adult life. The two scenes mentioned above are the most notable ones for Corey Allen in the movie.
Allen’s death comes on the heals of Dennis Hopper who had died about a month earlier. With Hopper’s death preceding Allen’s death, Allen was the last member of Rebel Without a Cause to be alive at the time.

While listing the series Corey Allen had a hand in directing, I realized I had watched everyone of these shows. While I hadn’t watched Hill Street Blues and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from the time they aired until they went off the air, I had watched several episodes of these two series.
The first three series are the ones I remember watching as an adult. The final nine series listed below are shows I grew up watching as a kid.
