10. From Here to Eternity (1953)

Natalie made the TV version of this Movie in 1979 and was wonderful in the part. Sexy as hell at 40, she deserved and won the Golden Globe for "best actress" !!

12. A Cry in the Night (1956)

Very underrated movie!! Natalie is only 18 in the lead role and is phenomenal in the role where she is kidnapped by Raymond Burr and almost rapped!!

13. Brainstorm (1983)

Natalie's last film, she's gorgeous and wonderful in the role, and the movie is way ahead of it's time, great Sci-Fi flick!

14. Marjorie Morningstar (1958)

Nice film with Gene Kelley, he's much too old for the part, but Natalie is refreshing as Marjorie and has some great scenes, the movie itself is a bit flawed.

Great war film well worth watching, great cast with Tony Curtis & Frank Sinatra, Natalie is beautiful as Monique and does a wonderful French accent!!

19. Peeper (1976)

This was a "sleeper" in the mid 1970's. It's actually a great film noir! Natalie is gorgeous and the movie is fun!

23. Bombers B-52 (1957)

This movie is my least favorites. It's really all about airplanes and Natalie's role is sort of lost in the picture at times.
ClaSSIc CiNEma's rating:


 

My favorite Natalie Wood movies listed by "best performance" order! A three time Oscar nominee and winner of numerous other awards, Natalie Wood became a legend in her own time! She grew up in front of the camera, with a quality that made you want her to be "alright". She acted from the heart and with her eyes she caught your attention and the camera loved her! Though she died tragically, this breathtaking beauty leaves behind a wealth of her timeless classic roles to endure and keep her legend alive! These are her most memorable "adult roles" of the more than 50 movies she filmed before her life was cut tragically short at the age of 43 by drowning off Catalina Island!
