It's sad that Natalie Wood is only back in the news because of her untimely death in 1981, which is apparently now being re-investigated (to dovetail with a book coming out on the thirtieth anniversary of the tragedy). It was ruled an accidental drowing; suspicions/conspiracy theories have always percolated; now people are raising it again. For my money, I think Occam's razor here suggests that a 43 year-old movie actress in the age before actresses were psychotic exercise freaks, with a blood alcohol level of 0.l4 (legally drunk), and known to be a bad swimmer, might actually have just tripped, fallen and accidentally drowned. She would be 73 years old this year.
But once upon a time she was the hottest hottest ticket in Hollywood history. At least that's my view.
Disagree at your peril.
