Publisher's Summary

From her starring roles as a skeptical child in the perennial classic Miracle on 34thStreet and a troubled adolescent in Rebel Without a Cause to mature roles in Splendor in the Grass and West Side Story, actress Natalie Wood transfixed the world with her hypnotic brown eyes. Yet behind the beautiful façade lurked a fragile, sparkling, generous, funny woman traumatized by her childhood and beset by personal demons. In this landmark biography, her close, personal friend Gavin Lambert sets out to tell her extraordinary story with the help of intimate interviews from her friends and colleagues, including Robert Redford, Warren Beatty, and her husband, Robert Wagner. What emerges is a luminous, assiduously researched portrait that sheds new light on the life and tragic death of the silver screen's most beguiling star.

a mom story

What disappointed you about Natalie Wood?

Every few paragraphs we get a diatribe of how Natalie's mother was connected to Russian Aristocracy. The story line jumps back and forth so much and drops names that it is confusing and hard to follow if Natalie is 8 or 14 at the time.

What do you think your next listen will be?

back to fiction

How did the narrator detract from the book?

mans voice on a woman's story not good

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no, I didn't finish it
