this is amazing. i watched The Mystery of Natalie Wood on ABC and i learned so many cool things about her. the best one had to be that when she was tweleve, she broke her wrist and her mom wouldn't let her go the hospital. so she had a deformed wrist because the bones didn't set right. she always wore a bracelet after that, so no one could see it. if you look at her wrist, i don't know if it's the left or right, she'll always have a bracelet on. the only time she took it off, was the scene where she's in the bathtub in Splendor in the Grass.

i thought that was pretty cool. i never noticed she always wore a bracelet before. now it's all i can do, watch her wrists and look for a bracelet.

I ment to watch that, but I couldn't.

Her mom, could they not afford it, or was she just mean?

That's awful.
Her mother sounded really vicious, if she refused to let Natalie go to the hospital to get her broken wrist taken care of.

Natalie Wood, unfortunately, was a real bitch towards Richard Beymer during the filming. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, if one gets the drift.

I watched a rerun of Rebel Without A Cause yesterday and yes, there was Natalie with her bracelet. I felt sorry for little Natasha. What on earth was her mom thinking?!?!

her mom was afraid having Natalie's wrist in a cast would destroy her career. i call that crazy.

me too. i saw the TV movie too. her mom was a monster, she should've just let Natalie be normal kid. i'm reading the most recent biography of her by Gavin Lambert, did you know Olga and Lana aren't her blood relatives. i know Lana isn't but i'm not sure about Olga
