Hollywood Sweetheart 3

Natalie Wood
Was there ever a starlet that could mesmerize by simply walking down a hallway?
Splendor in the Grass, West Side Story, This Property is Condemned, Gypsy, Love With a Perfect Stranger.
The list of fantastic movies where she graced the screen and our hearts with her presence is almost endless.
Her beauty was forever etched in my memory in Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice. Overall a dreadful movie, boring beginning, stupid quasi avante garde philosophy about being free spirits, and lame ending. There's the one scene where Natalie walks down a hallway in white turtle neck and mini skirt and I melted. Lately it's the movie has been on premium channels and I watched it again. Oh fast forward is a blessing in this movie. That scene is still as hot today as it was over forty years ago.
A life so tragically cut short.

They can bring back mini-skirts anytime.

Yogi, that was the best part about growing up in the sixties and early seventies.
