There's a video making the rounds of a long-lost episode of 'General Electric Theater' - "The Dark, Dark Hours" stars Ronald Reagan (who was also the host of the anthology series), Constance Ford, and James Dean as the young punk who terrorizes a doctor and his family. I've seen it posted at the sites for The Huffington Post and The Atlantic.
Here's a compilation video of the scenes between Reagan and Dean, so that you don't have to plow through the whole thing. (I get the feeling that the entire story was very talky and hammy as well.)
James Dean performed in other TV anthology series as well before he hit it big as a movie star. (He certainly couldn't do so afterwards, as he died in a car crash at the age of 24 before two of his three films were released.) So he has a presence in Toobworld as well.
