He was a teen idol at 16, a struggling celebrity at 30 and dead at 37.

He is remembered by most as a teen star who never lasted in a tough business. But he made more than 20 films and tried his hand on Broadway in a career cut short by tragedy. Sal Mineo was a major star who has become a forgotten celebrity. A dark-haired boy from the Bronx, he was a major teen idol in the late 1950s, followed everywhere by mobs of screaming young girls. He starred alongside James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and Paul Newman in Exodus. But when he was stabbed to death in a failed robbery attempt at the age of 37, Mineo was struggling to get by.

This long-overdue portrait tells the complete story of the one-time star. Family photos, extensive clips and interviews with friends, family and co-stars follow him from his New York childhood to his tragic death in Hollywood.

From teen idol to forgotten star, join us for the up-and-down saga of Sal Mineo.
