There’s a scene midway through celebrated teen melodrama Rebel without a Cause in which Jim Stark (James Dean) and his classmates visit the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
Sitting in the darkness of the auditorium as a vast blanket of stars and galaxies is projected above their heads, they hear a stentorian narrator talk of the infinite stretch of space and time.
This romantic despair, also clear and present in many other films by director Nicholas Ray, is what’s kept Rebel without a Cause more truly alive than the other groundbreaking delinquency dramas of the 1950s.
Coinciding with the arrival of rock’n’roll on the radio, teen biker flick The Wild One (1953), with Marlon Brando, and classroom rebellion drama Blackboard Jungle (1955), with Sidney Poitier, were among the first films to reflect the excitements and discontents of teenage life back at the newly liberalised adolescents of the postwar period.
First seen breaking into an East End café, 17-year-old Del (Del Walker) and his mates live a life of delinquency and aimlessness with little hope for their futures.
Even Del’s budding romance seems doomed with parental interference.

Some whimsical elements suggest the film may have been an influence on Wes Anderson or Richard Ayoade, but Gregory’s Girl never feels twee or wilfully idiosyncratic, just charming, unassuming and hilarious.
“As we follow Gregory on his roving, uncertain ‘date’,” writes Mark Duguid for BFI Screenonline, “Forsyth almost convinces us that the unglamorous, concrete new town of Cumbernauld is as romantic as Paris.” Maurice Pialat’s 1978 film Passe ton bon d’abord had all the sex, drugs and angst of the best teen films, presenting the bleak outlook facing a generation of graduating school friends in an impoverished region in northern France.
