YMMV / Natalie Wood

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In Sex and the Single Girl, her character and the male protagonist accidentally fall into the sea. They're rescued, and later, share a romantic moment in her apartment, but she rejects him, because she thinks he's married. On the next day, he tries to convince her, saying, "Last night, something happened that was very real. Something that very few people get." She replies, "I know, drowned".
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Supposedly, Natalie's mother once predicted that, because of her fear of dark water, Natalie would die in said water. There's also the references to drowning in her films, like the example in Sex and the Single Girl mentioned above, and a major plot point of Splendor in the Grass is that her character tries to drown herself, but is rescued.
