SMALL TEXAS TOWN... 

ABOUT THE FILM

In the summer of 1955, it seemed as if all of Hollywood had descended on the dusty West Texas town of Marfa as production began on the highly anticipated movie Giant. The film starred a legendary trio — Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean.

 

Now, 60 years later, “CHILDREN OF GIANT”returns to Marfa to explore the dramatic story behind the making of the film and its enduring legacy.  Featuring rare behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen photos, “CHILDREN OF GIANT” includes interviews with several noted film historians.
