Miracle on 34th Street, The Searchers, Rebel Without a Cause, Splendor in the Grass, West Side Story, all these landmark Classic Hollywood films feature legendary actress Natalie Wood. Unfortunately Wood’s memory tends to focus on her tragic death. This month, Wood is Star of the Month on Turner Classic Movies spotlighting her varied career from child star to adult actress.
Wood’s films will be shown each Friday in November with a special introduction by her widow Robert Wagner and her daughter Natasha Gregson Wagner. The two recently collaborated to release a book with Turner Classic Movies about Wood’s life featuring never before seen to the public photos and exclusive interviews. You can learn more about the book Natalie Wood: Reflections on a Legendary Life here.
Turner Classic Movies Social Media Producer Marya E. Gates and Lindsay Grossman of the blog, The Girl Who Knew Too Much, discuss the legacy of Natalie Wood with me in a special podcast discussion.
