Sal Mineo was an American Film Actor and Theater Director. His acting career began in 1951 when he was chosen for a small role in the Tennessee William’s play, The Rose Tattoo, before portraying Prince Chulalongkorn in the stage musical of The King and I opposite Yul Brynner. His career catapulted when he portrayed John “Plato” Crawford in the 1955 classic drama, Rebel Without a Cause, alongside James Dean and Natalie Wood. His electrifying performance earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He continued to perform in many films and television programs, earning an Emmy nomination for his work in the Westinghouse Studio One drama, Dino. He was also an openly bisexual actor during a time when homosexuality was taboo and even directed the LGBT prison play, Fortune & Men’s Eyes. Even after his untimely murder in February 12 1976, his legacy still lives on. I want his legacy to continue for future generations and I believe for his contributions to his film and theater career, deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I deeply believe that anything is possible and even if that dream goes unfulfilled, I know that I’ve tried for not only myself, but the fans, his surviving family, and friends.
