Absolutely beautiful tribute to Natalie Wood
14 May 2020 | by moviemom23See all my reviews

Those under 40 probably don't even know who Natalie Wood is. This touching documentary by Wood's daughter Natasha includes amazing clips of her films, numerous pictures of family, friends and intimate home movies. I didn't know a lot of the details about her life, career and loves. She embodied pure glamour during the golden age of movies and her career spanned a long time even though she was just 43 when she died.

Of course it goes into her love life which is extensive. The love story between Natalie and Robert Wagner is pure Hollywood- married twice 10 years apart and it seems like they were passionately in love.

Some reviews complain about the focus on the circumstances of her mysterious death but I would have been disappointed had it not been addressed. Pretty incredible that Natasha goes directly to the source, the one person who could answer the questions everyone has, stepfather Wagner. I don't know, he seemed genuine to me, but then again who knows? They're actors after all.

I enjoyed this thoroughly, perhaps too much, but then I love Hollywood stories! Worth a watch just to gaze upon hundreds of images of Natalie- how positively stunning she is! If you love movies, you will love this.
