“Start of a motor race in Salinas. My childhood friend Rolf Wütherich, Porsche factory engineer, and James Dean pose for the last happy photo in a Porsche 550 Spyder. Wütherich asks a passer-by to take this photo with his kodak retina camera shortly before the start. The unfortunate drive ends after ca. 270 km at a crossing of highway 46, James Dean is dead immediately and Rolf Wütherich returns to Germany after a long hospital stay in the USA. I developed the Kodak film after many years…”   Werner Eisele
