Featured Actor… Natalie Wood

I think this is going to become popular on this blog, since I don’t have time to watch a lot of new movies, and coming up with reviews for them takes a lot of time and effort. This way, I can cover a lot more ground in a shorter amount of time! So, here it is, ladies and gentlemen, Natalie Wood.

Miracle On 34th Street 1947, although only nine years old in the role, I find Wood brilliant as the little girl who doesn’t believe in Santa Clause. This fantastic holiday favorite is definitely a must see, for all ages. Wood is brilliant in the beginning stages of her acting career, and it makes you really want to believe in a real Santa.

West Side Story 1961, probably one of my favorite musicals ever, this film is a great representation of the broadway play. The music, by Bernstein and Sondheim is fantastic, and the Jerome Robbins choreography is brilliant, and fantastically fun. A great movie all around. Fun, and sad all in one, this is a must see for all.

Love With The Proper Stranger 1963, this romantic film starring Wood and Steve McQueen (dreamy) is very well acted. Although sad, this film has a happy ending. Not sappy, but still romantic, this is one of my favorite movies.

The Great Race 1965, this comedy is simply fun and random. I still love to watch this movie as much as I did when I was ten. This film really is funny, and with a cast including Wood, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis how could you not like it?
