Born to Russian-immigrant parents, Natalie Wood made her first film appearance at age four as an extra in Happy Land (1943). When she was promoted to supporting roles, the young Wood was well prepared for the artistic discipline expected of her: She'd been taking dancing lessons since infancy. By 1947, she earned up to a thousand dollars per week for such films as Miracle on 34th Street. She made a reasonably smooth transition to grown-up roles, most notably as James Dean's girlfriend in Rebel Without a Cause (1955) and Warren Beatty's steady in Splendor in the Grass (1961). She was also a regular on the 1953 sitcom Pride of the Family, playing the teenaged daughter of Paul Hartman and Fay Wray. Despite being romantically linked with several of her leading men, Wood settled down to marriage relatively early, wedding film star Robert Wagner in 1957. The union didn't last, and she and Wagner were divorced in 1962. Continuing to star in such important films as West Side Story (1961), Gypsy (1963), Inside Daisy Clover (1967), and Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice (1969), Wood always managed to bounce back from her numerous career setbacks, and in 1971, after an interim marriage to screenwriter Richard Gregson, Wood remarried Robert Wagner, this time for keeps. Opinions of her acting ability varied: Her adherents felt that she was one of Hollywood's most versatile stars, while her detractors considered her to be more fortunate than talented. The Oscar people thought enough of Wood to nominate her three times, for Rebel Without a Cause, West Side Story, and Love With the Proper Stranger (1963). In the midst of filming the 1981 sci-fier Brainstorm, 43-year-old Natalie Wood drowned in a yachting accident just off Catalina Island. Among her survivors was her sister, actress Lana Wood.

  • Sister of Lana Wood and Olga Wood.
  • Mother of Natasha Gregson Wagner.
  • Named after director Sam Wood.
  • Favorite actress was Vivien Leigh.
  • In the 1950s she was known as a "Hollywood Badgirl" along with Janet Leigh & Debbie Reynolds.
  • Natalie was suffering from a deep fear of drowning after having barely survived an accident during the filming of The Green Promise (1949). Her fear was so great, that Elia Kazan had to lie - promising a double - and trick her into doing the scenes at the water reservoir in Splendor in the Grass (1961).
  • Interred at Westwood Memorial Park, Los Angeles, California, USA, Section D, #60.
  • Was commonly listed as 5' 3" wearing heels in movie magazines, though her actual height was 5' 0".
  • On April 23, 1966, she made Harvard history when she became the first performer voted the year's worst by the Harvard Lampoon to show up and accept her citation.
  • Reportedly turned down Warren Beatty's offer to play opposite him in Bonnie and Clyde (1967) because she didn't want to be separated from her analyst while the film was on location in the Midwest.
  • Splendour, the name of the yacht Wood was on the night she died, was named after her 1961 movie Splendor in the Grass (1961). She co-starred in the film with former love Warren Beatty.
  • An accident on a movie set when she was 9 years old left her with a permanently weakened left wrist and a slight bone protrusion which for the rest of her life she hid with large bracelets. Regardless of the movie role, or anytime that she was out in public, she always wore a large bracelet on the left wrist.
  • The rubber dinghy 'Prince Valiant' she'd been trying to board after falling from husband Robert Wagner's yacht that fateful Thanksgiving weekend in 1981, was named after Wagner's 1954 movie, a film the actor considered among his worst
  • Had planned to produce as well as star in 'I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (1977)', but the leading role of Deborah went to Kathleen Quinlan by the time the film was made.
  • Director Sydney Pollack credits her with his big break.
  • Attended ballet classes with two time husband Robert Wagner's third wife Jill St. John and Wagner's "Hart to Hart" (1979) co-star Stefanie Powers.
  • Pallbearers at her funeral were Rock Hudson, Frank Sinatra, Laurence Olivier, Elia Kazan, Gregory Peck, David Niven, and Fred Astaire.
  • By the early 1960s, Natalie Wood was considered one of Hollywood's most valuable and wanted actresses. However, her career lost steam and never recovered from the box office failure of the highly-touted Inside Daisy Clover (1965) despite the fact that film critics had blamed the production's failure on a poor script that included stilted dialog written for Wood's character by screenwriter Gavin Lambert.
  • Daughter with Robert Wagner: Courtney Brooke (b. 9 March 1974).
  • Daughter with Richard Gregson: Natasha (b. 29 September 1970).
  • Her death was kismet, as she always cited a fear of water
  • Natalie dated Elvis Presley in the 1950s, Elvis wanted to marry her, but Elvis's mother did not like Natalie.
  • Natalie and co-star Richard Beymer's singing voices were both dubbed in West Side Story (1961) The woman who dubbed Natalie, Marni Nixon, also dubbed Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady (1964) and Deborah Kerr in The King and I (1956).
  • The daughter of a Russian architect and a French ballerina could do a proper plié before she could barely walk.
  • Her mother, Maria, claimed that the family was closely related to the Romanov dynasty.
  • Spoke Russian and English
  • Though some people cite her mother as being French, her mother was Russian. The source of this misconception comes from the studio that Natalie worked at when she was young - people noticed her mother's accent and when asked if she was French, Maria replied: "Oh yes", a white lie that would contribute to this confusion.
  • Younger sister Lana Wood made a ABC TV special on Natalie's life, The Mystery of Natalie Wood (2004) (TV).
  • Wore dress size 5.
  • Measurements: 32-20 1/2-32 (at age 18), 32B-22-33 ("Parade" magazine December 1962), (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)
  • Portrayed by Rebecca Budig in _James Dean: Race with Destiny (1997)_ , by Justine Waddell in The Mystery of Natalie Wood (2004) (TV) and by Abi Young in Elvis (1979/I) (TV)
  • Turned down the role of Judith Anderson in The Devil's Disciple (1959) because she didn't want to work with Kirk Douglas for "personal" reasons.
  • Turned down the films Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Barefoot in the Park (1967) and Goodbye, Columbus (1969).
  • She was cast as Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1976) (TV) quite unexpectedly, without campaigning for the role. Wood explained that when Laurence Olivier would come to Hollywood, she would often be seated with him at the table at formal sit-down dinners. When Olivier decided to make a version of the Tennessee Williams play, he thought of casting Wood, his dinner companion, and her husband, Robert Wagner, in the husband-wife roles of Brick and Maggie. Naturally, they accepted.
  • Wood knew screenwriter Gavin Lambert as both were intimates of director Randy Suhr. In the early 1960s, he wrote a novel about a Hollywood child star in the 1930s, Inside Daisy Clover (1965). After reading the book, Wood telephoned Lambert and said, "I'd kill for that part." He assured her she was his first choice for the movie, for which he was writing the screenplay. She got the part and Ruth Gordon got her first Oscar nomination as an actress for portraying Daisy's mother.
