  1. I’m definitely a big fan. Splendor is my favorite performance of hers, though I like WSS and Rebel more as films. She definitely ranks with Audrey Hepburn as one of the great screen beauties.

  2. i love natalie wood. the first film i saw alone in a theatre when i was a kid was west side story. it was also the first picture i saw win for best picture at th oscars. natalie has always haunted my life. i followed her career forever until and after her questionable death. i was so distraught when i found out about her death. i love all the choices you made of her films. inside daisy cover though was also one of my favorites. it would be difficult for me to rate them in any order. i loved maria but splendour in the grass she dd a brilliant performance. she always did. 74 yrs this year. the work she could have done. i also have my theories about her death. i never felt it was just an accident. she would never had gotten that close to the water at night. thank you for the bautiful tribute.

    • I debated taping Inside Daisy Clover when TCM played it…have to get to it soon! Same here, based on the stories of her near-drowning and her general fear of the water I don’t believe, despite her intoxicated state, that she would have attempted to leave the boat. Other evidence including the fact that bruises on her body did not match a drowning victim and the fact that Robert Wagner refused to turn lights on his boat when the Coast Guard asked (which would have allowed her to be discovered sooner) makes it sound all the more suspicious but sadly I don’t think we’ll ever hear more than “it was an accident.” Thanks for reading!!
