The Mystery of Natalie Wood : Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!

Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!

She made Natalie's life a mess. In a roundabout way I even blame her for Nat's drowning, because if she hadn't made her so afraid of water she probably would have learned how to swim. And who encourages their 14/15 year old daughter to go to an adult party at Frank Sinatras house? I'm not going to get into the broken wrist and other stuff. Bad mother! Who agrees?

Re: Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!

Natalie's mother was terrible - it's a pity her kids weren't taken from her and placed with foster (or adoptive) parents, who could have given them a decent childhood. She was the archetypal pushy showbiz mother, who wanted one of her daughters to become famous at any cost. What she did to her daughters (and what she allowed them to do) should have gotten her arrested!

Incidentally, Natalie could swim - not strongly, but she could swim. She died because she was drunk and made some foolish and ultimately fatal choices (e.g. flirting with Walken and deciding to go on deck on her own to either re-tie the dinghy or board it). It was also determined that the down jacket she was wearing weighed her down and contributed to her death.

Yes, the mother is always portrayed as a terrible person and stage mother, which she probably was.

"I wonder if all stage mom are that bad. "

Ever heard of Elizabeth Taylor's? I think Natalie's mom was much worse though.

Re: Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!

I agree that Maria/Marie was not a good mom, but the father was not any better getting drunk and chasing her around with a gun, pointing a knife to his wifes pregnant belly when she was pregnant with Lana.

Re: Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!

Both parents as depicted in this seemed like a total nightmare. Some people should never have children.

Re: Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!

The thing that bothers me about her is she kept telling Natalie she would die if she had a baby.

Re: Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!


this is a dramatized version of her mother remember? i prefer to think of her as very caring maybe overtly protective mom to natalie. every parent has their own way of rearing their kids and she had hers. she loved her dearly and must have been very proud of her daughter being in such famous movies.


Re: Natalie's mother was horrible!!!!

That's scene where Natalie calls her mother to question her existence is one of the best scenes in the documentary even though she was a bully her whole life she still cared about her and it kinda humanized her that even though she exploited her and bullied her she still her mother and wants to make sure her daughter doesn't feel miserable the best way she can.
