NATALIE WOOD - A FILMOGRAPHY

Natalie Wood (b. 20 JULY 1938 - d. 29 NOVEMBER 1981) began her film career at age 4 with a small role in Irving Pichel’s film "Happy Land". Her career spanned 39 years and over 45 films, she was nominated for three Academy Awards for "Rebel Without a Cause", "Splendor in the Grass" and "Love with the Proper Stranger". One of Hollywood’s most versatile actresses, she appeared in dramas, comedies, westerns, and musicals. She died at age 43, leaving behind her husband Robert Wagner and two daughters, Natasha and Courtney. The circumstances surrounding the night of her drowning still remain a mystery.
