Off screen, the real Natalie Wood was all those things you’d image she’d be: adorable, vivacious, bright, spirited. She was also extremely kind to neophytes. I found that out first-hand when Natalie had the misfortune to be the first celebrity I was ever assigned to interview for a magazine article. Robert Osbourne.

By the mid-1950s Natalie Wood (1938 – 1981) was entering what would—for most child actors—have been the “awkward age” verging on young adulthood. But the awkwardness seemed to miss Wood. In 1955 Warner Bros. cast her opposite James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause,” and she was nominated for a supporting actress Oscar. LA Times.

Natalie Wood 1938 – 1981

In 1938, American on August 12, 2017 at 6:08 am

Her life and career seem so distant now — a blur of black-and-white glamour shots that come into focus mostly whenever the tabloids ghoulishly rehash her ending. But on Thanksgiving weekend of 1981, the death of Natalie Wood came as a shock. At 43, she was still a vital presence in celebrity culture — a youthful link to Hollywood’s Golden Age, whom the world had watched grow up from an adorable kid star to a sultry leading lady.

Natalie Wood 1938 – 1981

In 1938, American on August 9, 2017 at 12:06 pm

Beginning at the age of 4, and over the next four decades, Natalie Wood starred or appeared in more than five dozen films and television shows and was an emblem of Hollywood glamour and beauty, wholesome but sensual — a good girl growing up in front of American moviegoers during the squeaky-clean 1950s and the sexual revolution and era of women’s liberation that followed. She died in 1981, when she was 43, having drowned Thanksgiving weekend somewhere off the coast of Catalina Island, Calif., where she had been staying on a boat with her husband, Robert J. Wagner, and a friend, the actor Christopher Walken. NY Times.
