This is going to be so cool you guys! I will be projecting the entire slideshow on a pool on the anniversary of Natalie Wood’s death at the Public Pool Gallery in Encino, CA. It might even rain which would be insane because it was raining the night Natalie Wood died. If you want to join us this Thursday DM me for the address!
It’s never too early to start planning for Thanksgiving and with Natalie Wood’s latest movie, “Brainscan” with Christopher Walken winding down, Wood has the long holiday weekend to unwind before heading into rehearsals for her next movie, “Anastasia.” Her secretary and good friend, Peggy Griffin, usually comes over on Thanksgiving around 6PM for dessert, but can’t this year due to a friend’s hospitalization. Peggy later says, “Everything about this whole sad time to me was so ironic… My whole Thanksgiving got kind of turned around.” Natalie and her husband, actor Robert Wagner, decide to spend the holiday weekend moored off the coast of Catalina Island. Wood’s co-star, Christopher Walken, joins them…

It's November 2nd and 82 degrees in L.A. We drive over to Venice Beach and get stoned in the car before walking the canals to the beach. I've spent the last week or two consumed by all things Halloween and River Phoenix - River's deathiversary is October 31, 1993 - so it was nice to jump back into Natalie Wood's life story... and on the beach! I was not expecting to spend the first weekend in November high by the beach. I arrive at the chapter where Wood is planning her ill-fated Thanksgiving weekend on Catalina Island. This Thanksgiving, my husband and I are spending Wood's deathiversary on Catalina Island. Anyone up for a seance over Thanksgiving dinner?
