I didn’t really know I liked Natalie Wood until about a week ago. Setting into the Warner Brothers Natalie Wood Collection I had no real idea what to expect. I’d already seen Inside Daisy Clover and Love with the Proper Stranger, and to be honest I only liked the latter. So her track record with me was 50/50. When I put those films up against all the other classic cinema I enjoyed, Inside Daisy Clover just seemed to fall short. Luckily, in the Natalie Wood Collection the quality is a pretty even split.
Bombers B-52 (1957)
I felt that the inclusion of Bombers B-52 in the Natalie Wood Collection mislead me. Considering the plot revolves around Sgt. Chuck Brennan (Karl Malden) and his grudge against Col.

Collections ~ It's Tuesday so there are new box sets available highlighting everything from tired hockey masked killers (you know who) to highly respected thespians (Peter Sellers and Alec Guiness) but the big ... make that B-i-g... deal for The Film Experience is the "Natalie Wood Collection" which includes six films. I haven't seen Bombers B-52 or Cash McCall but even if they're bad you still get to stare at her for two hours. Her beauty justifies most any running time.
Natalie Wood *swoon*
The other four are more notable players in her filmography. There's the Edith Head costumed Helen Gurley Brown comedy Sex and the Single Girl (1964) and two true classics: the musical Gypsy (1962) and the legendary 'Warren Beatty Destroys Lives!' teen angst of the unbeatable Splendor in the Grass (1961). Adventurous movie fanatics might be most interested in getting a good long look at the underseen and idiosyncratic inside »

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0 Chicago – When I hear phrases like “screen icon” or “Hollywood legend,” one of the first people that I think of is Natalie Wood. Six of the famous star’s films have been compiled for the “Natalie Wood Collection,” a great starter set for classic movie buffs intrigued by this timeless star or collector’s looking to enhance their catalog.
Gone way too soon, Wood appeared in 56 film and television roles, becoming an internationally recognized star before she was even old enough to drive. Wood first appeared on screen when she was only five and won acclaim when she was only nine for her work in “Miracle on 34th Street”. She would go on to start in irrefutable classics like “Rebel Without a Cause” and “West Side Story”. She was nominated for three Academy Awards and seven Golden Globes, winning three of the latter.
