Natalie Wood - MovieMonday.com

Cute, bright, sexy, Natalie Wood had it all. While Jane Fonda may have gotten more press, Wood's on screen characters in many ways represented the 1960's woman: young, independent, and comfortable with her sexuality.

Notable films include: "Rebel Without a Cause," "This Property is Condemned" (Wood's favorite of her movies), "The Great Race," and "Love with the Proper Stranger." Natalie Wood's defining role was as Maria in "West Side Story."

Natalie Wood died in a boating accident, near Catalina Island, in 1981. More
