Flashback Friday-The Mystery Of Natalie Wood (2004)

For a certain generation of movie goers, Natalie Wood is their movie star. A product of the old Hollywood studio system, she grew from a precocious child star to an adult actress whose varied roles left an indelible mark on audiences. Sadly, she drowned in 1981, leaving behind not just a grieving family, but a respected body of work.

In 2004, the television biopic, The Mystery Of Natalie Wood aired. Starring Justine Waddell as Natalie Wood and Michael Weatherly as Robert Wagner, the television biopic is the story of Natalie Wood’s life and career before her untimely passing nearly 36 years ago.

A biopic has to walk a fine line. While it must respect the life of the person who is being profiled, it must also be entertaining to audiences.As a biopic, it’s not bad. I’ve seen worse.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
