James dean last photo When dream merged with life into the burning scintilla of a dynamite and it goes like bam bam bam, others stand woah, there can never be anything more perfect, as much as I can think of. Dream is made eternal by ephemeral life, and that's the beauty of James Dean.
At 'Competition Motors' in Hollywood, Rolf Wütherich preparing James Deans Spyder 550 in presence of James Dean and Bill Hickman (offscreen), just a few days before the company leaves for Salinas where James Dean would participate in a major race. By a dramatic accident he would never arrive. This is one of the last pictures with James Dean, taken by Sanford Roth.
James Dean-most people think that his car accident was alchohol related. If you actually read the coroner's report, the cause was an embelism in his brain. The way I understood it was , he essentially had a clot in his body his whole life, it worked into his brain and he lost control of his car when it happened. Not a rebel without a cause. Just a rebel with health problems.
