James Dean in GiantWhat we're watching: Skiing, ski-jumping and ice-dancing medals get awarded tonight, with all of the Olympic action starting at 8 p.m. on NBC in 1080i. For movie buffs, you get a chance to catch James Dean in his last movie. "Giant" from 1956 won a Best Director Oscar for George Stevens and stars famous names like Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, and even a young Dennis Hopper along with Dean. Tune in at 6:05 p.m. on HDNet Movies for the 1080i presentation of this Texas-sized epic. You'll still have some time to see some Olympic medal events after the flick.
