Actresses of the 50s and 60s

Natalie Wood wearing a bracelet

In 1938, American on April 2, 2017 at 8:45 am

Note the large bracelet on Natalie Wood’s left wrist. It’s to hide a small protruding wrist bone from a terrifying – and deliberate – accident on the set of The Green Promise (1949). Her character was to cross a bridge in the rain. The production kept secret from the ten year old Natalie that bridge would collapse as she crossed (you can see her panic as it breaks). Filming the scene left her with a broken wrist and a fear of deep water.
