    I don't think RJ's version ever made sense and why doesn't Christopher Walken talk? There was obviously a cover up and I think the whole family (sister, daughters and parents) deserved answers.

    Christopher Walken probably feels guilty for causing the argument that led to her death. I don't think I'd talk about it either.

    why poor natalie? from all the descriptions, she was a shallow, silly, drunk attention whore, flaunting her lover in front of her husband.
    i'd feel sorry for her if it turned out wagner actually killed her but i seriously doubt it. i think she probably just fell off, in the middle of an argument or by herself. either way, i don't think it was murder. as for her family, they would probably rather believe that he pushed her off and covered it up, than that she was a drunk-ass mess and fell off.
    and yeah, walken probably feels like an ass for getting himself into that situation in the first place.

    ^^ I don't feel sorry for her either, she always struck me as vapid and something else I couldn't quite put my finger on, but it didn't make her likeable to me.

    It does make her seem less reliable... but there is also the "if you say anything I'll ruin you in this town"-type of threat from RW since he's a producer... I could see him doing that if he's been ruthless enough to cover up manslaughter for however many years it is...

    Is the boat captain still alive? I don't understand why Lana didn't tell the police what he reported & why they didn't interview him (although she might have covered it & I just didn't read it?).

    Christoper Walken was just starting out in the business and he was their guest. I don't think Natalie had to "flaunt" anything.

    i feel sorry for b/c of her childhood lost basically to her mother's ambitions. her life reminds me of Judy Garland's in many ways.

    She seemed to be fine though in her last years, I mean it can be accomplished. look at Drew Barrymore!

    My thinking with the clothes is if she didn't want them, she could have let Robert keep them for Natalie's daughter(s) instead of just selling them off. Or held onto them herself to pass on to her nieces when they got older.

    I feel sorry for Natalie because she was pimped out from grade school and was pretty much worked like a dog. Fortunately, she liked what she did and was good at it. Her last moments may not have reflected well on her, but she was drunk and so were her companions. I can't pretend to know the story behind her death, but my guess is the truth lies somewhere between Robert Wagner's version and Dennis Davern's version

    You have some good points. I thought about that possibility, too--saving the clothes for the daughters. Personally, I probably would've culled the more important pieces and set those aside for the girls, but if I'd needed the money, why not sell the rest? If I hadn't needed the money, donating them would be an option, but I'm not sure when using famous people's clothing to raise money became a common practice--I'm thinking it's something recent (?).

    I'll bet Natalie Wood had a shitload of clothes, and it's not necessarily easy or inexpensive to properly maintain a collection of garments.

    Well maybe she jumped. I remember reading about when she was dating Elvis (from some book by one of his hanger-ons Probably) and threatened to jump out a window or some such craziness. It was supposedly common knowledge amongst their circle that she was "crazier than a shithouse rat" and Elvis' response was something all non-chalant like "She's not gonna jump".

    Anyway, it's entirely possible her crazy, drunk (and gawd knows what else) ass went to the edge of the boat and started threatening to jump just to fuck with RJ and then "whoops" fell overboard.

    The biggest thing Wagner has going against him in Natalie's death is
    the fact that he didn't alarm anybody until 3 hours after they discovered
    she wasn't on the boat anymore.

    I don't know what happened, but I find it hard to believe that with two able bodied men on board, the one who goes out to secure the dinghy is an intoxicated woman in a flimsy night gown! Granted, her judgement may have been off from drinking to even try to go out there but unless the other two were passed out, doesn't make sense.

    I agree it doesn't sense, but people who are extremely intoxicated often do things that don't make sense.
