Actress Profile:
* Natalie appeared in her first film, "Happy Land" (1943) at the tender age of 4. She played the part of a little girl who begins to cry after dropping her ice cream cone.

* After her appearance in "Happy Land" her parents moved to L.A. in the hope that Natalie would get more film roles.

* It took 3 years before Natalie would get another film role. Her second film was "Tomorrow Is Forever" (1946) and she won the role only after her mother's persistence paid off when she convinced the casting agents to give her daughter a 2nd screen test.

* In 1947 Natalie got her breakthrough role when she won the hearts of moviegoers with her performance in the Christmas classic "Miracle on 34th Street".

* During the late 40's and early 50's Natalie continued to make small appearances in films until at age 17 she was given the female lead opposite James Dean in the critically acclaimed emotional teen drama "Rebel Without A Cause" (1955). This landmark teen film won her an Academy Award Nomination and laid the foundations for her film career.  

* In 1956 Natalie starred opposite Hollywood legend John Wayne in the western classic "The Searchers". Natalie played a young girl who was kidnapped and raised by Indians.

* In 1957 Natalie married actor Robert Wagner.

* In 1961 Natalie starred opposite George Chakiris in the blockbuster musical "West Side Story". Although Natalie did not receive an Oscar nomination the film nevertheless went on to win 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director.  

* More acclaim followed for Natalie in the early 1960's with Academy Award nominations for her performances in "Splendor In The Grass" (1961) with Warren Beatty and "Love With The Proper Stranger" (1963) opposite Steve McQueen.

* In 1962 Natalie Wood & Robert Wagner were divorced.

* In 1964 & 1965 Natalie starred opposite Tony Curtis in two popular comedies "Sex And The Single Girl" and "The Great Race".  

* After a small break from films in the mid to late 1960's Natalie returned to the big screen in the popular adult comedy "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969).

* In 1969 Natalie married producer Richard Gregson. They had a daughter Natasha.

* In 1971 Natalie divorced Richard Gregson after finding out he was having an affair.

* In 1972 Natalie remarried Robert Wagner and in 1974 they had a daughter, Courtney Brooke.

* Throughout the 1970's Natalie made occasional appearances on TV ("Cat On A Hot Tin Roof" with Robert Wagner & "From Here To Eternity" with William Devane) and in feature films ("Peeper" with Michael Caine and "Meteor" with Sean Connery), preferring instead to devote more time to her family.

* In the early1980's Natalie's career looked like it was in the midst of a comeback after starring roles with George Segal in the comedy "The Last Married Couple in America" (1980), and "Brainstorm" (1983) with Christopher Walken. Unfortunately, her comeback was short lived because of her untimely death in a boating accident in 1981 just before filming on "Brainstorm" was completed. Although principle photography had been done the release of the film was still held back for 2 years. A "stand in" and a play with "camera angles" had to be used in a few scenes to complete the project.
