In the latest clip from the upcoming James Dean biopic “Life” from director Anton Corbijn, Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan reenact the taking of an iconic photograph.

Patterson plays Dennis Stock, the LIFE magazine photographer who took some of the most memorable and intimate photos of James Dean, who is played by Dane DeHaan in the film. Corbijn, a photographer himself, captures this moment in which Dean walks through Times Square in the rain with his collar turned up and a cigarette between his lips, an image that would stick as an encapsulation of the young star’s essence forever.

“Life” premieres in select theaters on December 4. Watch the clip above courtesy of Vanity Fair
