They were all drunk and stoned and she fell over board.

Once they clear this up can we look for the person who killed Dennis Wilson?  Because evidently wasted famous people don't just drown in California

"I know who killed Natalie," Lana Wood told Closer Weekly of one of Hollywood's biggest unsolved mysteries.Natalie Wood's case was reopened in 2011 and although Lana cannot reveal details of her sister's drowning, she did claim that "according to the detectives, they think they do [know], too. There is no way the could [shut down] a case this close to being solved."
Seems like she's obstructing justice by not coming forward with the evidence. Isn't that a jailable offense?

Is that one of the crowd interactions?

RHPS pre-dates Natalie Wood's death by 8 years.  That's more prescient than Adam Sandler or Family Guy.

Yes, at the end when Frank is floating face down(dead) in the pool, most people call out 'What kind of wood doesn't float?', followed, of course, by your answer. There's almost never a reason why a specific incident gets tied directly to something in RHPS, of course. Someone pulled a "Too soon?" joke, I'm sure, and it stuck.

Is this some bizarre riddle? There were what four people on the boat? How can people solve clue but this remains a mystery for more than 30 years?

Wood: No, I'll just wash up on shore....

All circumstances surrounding her death aside, she was one of the most beautiful human beings ever to walk the earth. I've had a dead celebrity crush on her since seeing Splendor in the Grass a few years ago. I can't recall ever being so enchanted by someone on screen. She possessed the sort of beauty that makes your heart ache.

I know someone who can't swim, and I find it damn peculiar.
But for someone who grew up in southern California and owned a swimming pool and a boat it's an unmitigated WTF.

Right after we solve the Thomas Ince slaying.
 
2014-08-28 03:47:43 PM  
Hmm...
Walken and Wagner spent the night drinking and taking turns banging her, Walken and Wagner fight, she takes the lifeboat, falls overboard, and since she's wearing a down vest (when wet, turns into a frigging waterlogged, death trap), drowns.
Seems simple enough to me.
But, I'll bet the sister has a book or something coming out soon...

I thought Walken and Wagner were banging each other and she interrupted them.

My ex looked an amazingly lot like Natalie Wood.

Why yes, she was way way out of my league and I dont know how that happened. Why do you ask?

I first discovered Natalie back in college, only eight years after her mysterious going overboard. While the Fifties and Sixties also gave us Marilyn and Jayne, Natalie was my favorite from the era, her slight frame, dark hair and dark eyes contrasting sharply with the benchmark blondes. I still tend to favor Natalie types today.

My father in law is a life long boater, and he doesn't swim either.  I know more than a few others like that
too.  It seems to be something of a tradition with sailors.

Yeah, I felt completely bewitched by her while watching Splendor in the Grass. She does this thing with her eyes that just kills me. Here's a decent example from Rebel Without a Cause:

Anyway, I'm usually not one to develop celebrity crushes, or to search the net for images of celebrities at all, but I did land on this Natalie Wood tumblr page one day and ended up looking at pictures of her for hours, which is where I found the one of her on the boat.

Thanks so much for the free month of TF, btw. Much appreciated.

I am going to have to agree with all your points as she is quite lovely. I really feel her death was an accident, though I still have a small feeling of a sexual encounter gone bad. I really don't think they would have killed her over it though.

May as well post a few more. These are some of my faves. Middle ones are with Dennis Hopper and Nick Adams.

Profedius: I am going to have to agree with all your points as she is quite lovely. I really feel her death was an accident, though I still have a small feeling of a sexual encounter gone bad. I really don't think they would have killed her over it though.

Yeah, I agree. We'll never know what happened that night, but I tend to lean toward Occam's razor with this kind of thing. I know the reason a lot of people suspect foul play is that Natalie was deathly afraid of water after almost drowning as a child, so those close to her can't imagine she would ever attempt to board a small dinghy on her own in the middle of the night. I've also read conflicting reports about people in a boat nearby supposedly hearing female cries for help as well as a male voice responding, and of course there's the whole Walken/Wagner/Wood love triangle/jealousy/blowup theory (as well as the theory that Natalie walked in on Wagner and Walken). I also seem to remember a couple years ago the captain of the boat coming out and saying that it was more than an accident (these claims seemed a bit dubious to me, after so much time had passed, but who knows).

So yeah, I don't have a strong opinion about it as there's absolutely no way of knowing, and I don't know how much credibility can be attached to the rumors, but I do think people want to believe it was murder/coverup partly because that's much more interesting. That doesn't mean it wasn't, of course, but eh. As for her family members, their opinion is likely to be colored by grief, and maybe some anger about "Why wasn't Robert there to save her?" even if he didn't have a direct hand in it. I dunno. The circumstances surrounding her death are strange, though, I'll grant that.
