Splendor In The Grass

November 20, 2011 by staff 

Splendor In The Grass, Natalie Wood was terrified of the water. As an 11-year-old shooting “The Green Promise,” she was thrown off a bridge during a storm scene and nearly drowned. The incident scarred her for life.

Thirty-two years later, Wood died after falling into the ocean off Catalina Island in California.

Wood’s life is full of such curiosities. She was that rare child performer to make the transition to adult movie star, but her rise to success was marked by troubled relationships. She had beauty and talent, but she suffered from alcohol abuse and once tried to commit suicide.

And then there’s her death, coming just as she was restarting her movie career.

Wood, who died in 1981, is back in the news after police reopened the case involving her drowning at age 43.
