Natalie Wood in print and on TV

NY Times reports on a new biography of Natalie Wood that has just come out, and a Peter Bogdanovich-directed dramatized movie about her called "The Mystery of Natalie Wood" that will show on ABC on March 1. The circumstances surrounding her death by drowning have always been a fascinating mystery--and don't forget who the third person on the boat was besides Natalie and her husband Robert Wagner: Christopher Walken. She certainly isn't the most celebrated actress of the '50's and '60's, but watch her in Splendor in the Grass, and you will be knocked out.

The book was written by Gavin Lambert, who apparently was asked by Robert Wagner to write such a book years ago. It seems that Wagner got the author access to people who otherwise might not have agreed to interviews, so some new information will probably surface that wasn't included in all the other books out there about her.
