Natalie was such a good and natural actress. It's a great loss she died so young.

I don't think Robert Wagner is innocent in her death either. To tell people she went off to a party (in her pyjama) and pretend you didn't hear her scream for help while people heard it from a mile away is a little bit too weird for me.

Something happened that night. She was definitely murdered. Those guys know what happened.

One of my favorite actresses, love her! *-----*

une très belle actrice inoubliable dans tant de films

Natalie was so beautiful actress and she was my inspiration since I was 9. I loves her movies. So sad she died from drowning in 1981 and I definitely want to know the truth to come out on her case.

notnefAug 1, 2011

She was married to Robert Wagner 1972-to her death, but that was their second time around. She was also married to Robert Wagner 1957-62

I met Natalie in the shop Optique Boutique in 1976. Very pretty in person but seemed insecure.
