A tribute to Natalie Wood...

..on this day in 1981 the world lost Hollywood star Natalie Wood to a tragic drowning accident.  Although this incident is still in the news today I wanted to honour her with an UPLIFTING tirbute of beautiful photographs of her and her career.

This a tribute to the actress who was made famous by such films as Miracle on 34th Street (as a child), Rebel Without a Cause, Splendor in the Grass and of course in 1961 the role of Maria in the movie musical West Side Story and the title role of Gypsy Rose Lee in Gypsy in 1962...

Natalie Wood (July 20, 1938-November 29, 1981)
Love those shades Natalie!

I love this photo...so beautiful.
