Happy Birthday: Natalie Wood (1938–1981)

nataliewood.jpgNatalie Wood (1938–1981)

Born: July 20, 1938 in San Francisco, California, USA

Died: November 29, 1981 (age 43) in Santa Catalina Island, California, USA

Natalie stayed very busy as a child actress, appearing in no less than 18 films in the late 1940s and early 1950s. When she was 16 Natalie appeared in Rebel Without a Cause (1955) with James Dean, Sal Mineo and Dennis Hopper. She played Judy, a rebellious high school student who was more concerned with hanging out with the wrong crowd than being a sweet teenager like her contemporaries. The result was her first Academy Award nomination and a defining moment in her development as an adult actress. She appeared in Splendour in the Grass (1961), West Side Story (1961), Gypsy (1962), and Love with the Proper Stranger (1963).
