It’s official, our big winner for this competition is the wonderful Natalie Wood! Among the 4 finalists, she represented the 60’s era. Natalie Wood started her carrer very young in the 40’s in classics like Miracle on 34th Street. We also saw her in Rebel Without a Cause where she was playing James Dean’s girlfriend, John Ford’s The Searchers, Splendor in the Grass (for which she received a Best Actress Oscar nomination), the great musical West Side Story and more. Mrs Wood was married to actor Robert Wagner and unfortunately tragically died in 1981 at the young age of 43.
I’m very happy she won, because I have always loved her! I think her performance in Splendor in the Grass was marvellous. She is my 16th favourite actress of all times.
I also have to congrats Myrna Loy, Greer Garson and Audrey Hepburn, the 3 others finalists!
