It’s official, our big winner for this competition is the wonderful Natalie Wood! Among the four finalists, she represented the 60s. Natalie Wood started her career very young in the 40s, 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 marvelous. She is my 16th favourite actress of all times.
I also have to congrats Myrna Loy, Greer Garson and Audrey Hepburn, the three other finalists!
