Actresses of the 50s and 60s

Natalie Wood in ‘This Property Is Condemned’ 1966

In 1938, American on November 14, 2015 at 8:39 am


Executive Producer Ray Stark wanted Elizabeth Taylor to star, with John Huston directing. She agreed, but wanted her husband Richard Burton to direct. Both Huston and Taylor (who was too old to play the teenaged Alva Starr) bowed out, and the part went to Wood. A fan of Williams’s work, Wood was happy to step in, saying in an interview, “It’s probably the closest I’ll ever get to playing Blanche DuBois, so I’d better make the most of it.” Turner Classic Movies.
