James Dean as Bachir in the Broadway play “The Immoralist”, 1954.

The script called for Bachir to preform a dance with scissors to prey upon Michel’s weakening resistance to male flesh.

The dance that Dean came up with left quite an impression on one critic, who wrote the following season, “I have not seen such interesting sexual gyrations since James Dean, the Arab boy in The Immoralist, attempted to work his wiles on Louis Jourdan.” But the ensuing years have eroded the memories of those who saw Dean play Bachir, and no one can say what made the dance so striking. But when Philip Pine replaced Dean in the role, he was advised by director Daniel Mann “to give the impression in the dance that you’re gradually sitting on Michel’s cock.”
