    Forty years ago, actress Natalie Wood drowned off the coast of Catalina Island. Authorities classified her death as an accident, concluding the 43-year-old star of “West Side Story,” who couldn’t swim, had been drinking the night before she was found floating face-down in the ocean waters. Her death has been a Hollywood mystery, the topic of tabloid speculation, TV specials and books that explored whether she was the victim of a homicide. The theory gained dramatic interest a decade ago. In 2011, 30 years after Wood’s death, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials reopened the investigation. Then, in 2013, county coroner’s officials changed Wood’s cause of death from “accidental drowning” to “drowning and other undetermined factors.” The new coroner’s report cited fresh bruises on the actress’ arms and knee, along with a scratch on her neck and a scrape on her forehead, as evidence that she might have been assaulted before she drowned. The new report also noted “conflicting statements” about when Wood disappeared and whether she had argued with her husband, actor Robert Wagner, who — along with Christopher...

The actress, who recently wrote a memoir titled "Little Sister," told Fox News she felt at ease working alongside the Scottish actor. Connery passed away in 2020 at age 90. "I knew Sean," said the 75-year-old. "I had met him years ago. My boyfriend at the time was [film producer] Jerome Hellman who was friends with Sean. We were invited to dinner at his house and I remember him being fun. He was very magnetic. He was very charismatic and we just had a terrific evening. I felt so comfortable with him. I was completely at ease. So when I saw Sean walking through the lobby on the first day on set, I was delighted. I was a nervous wreck so I felt like I at...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – An inquiry into the 1981 drowning death of Hollywood actress Natalie Wood has been opened with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for a new book that claims there was a cover-up of the circumstances around her death. A man writing a book about the incident has filed legal action to obtain sheriff records, which he says the department to date has refused to turn over. Samuel A. Perroni, a retired federal prosecutor and Arkansas trial lawyer, brought the petition Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court against the L.A.S.D. and Sheriff Alex Villanueva, seeking a judge’s order directing that the information be turned over. An LASD representative could not be immediately reached for comment. Wood drowned at age 43 while on a weekend boat trip to Catalina Island on husband Robert Wagner’s yacht. Fellow famous actor Christopher Walken, her co-star in the film “Brainstorm,” was also aboard the Splendour that night. Wood was reported missing from the 60-foot yacht at 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 29, 1981, off Catalina Island. Her body was found floating in the water the...
    The daughter of actress Natalie Wood has explained how her mother's mysterious death by drowning left her with emotional scars that shaped the emotional relationships she formed in adulthood.  Natasha Gregson Wagner, 49, was just 11 years old when Wood, the Oscar-nominated star of West Side Story and Rebel Without A Cause, was found floating face down off the coast of Catalina Island in the Pacific Ocean in November 1982. Wood had been on a weekend boat trip with her husband Robert Wagner and actor Christopher Walken in what remains one of Hollywood's most enduring mysteries almost 40 years later. Natasha this year spoke out about her mother's life and death for the first time in a memoir, More Than Love, An Intimate Portrait of My Mother, Natalie Wood, in which she vehemently defends Wagner, her beloved stepfather, against lingering accusations of foul play and involvement in Wood's death.  Speaking about the book to the Irish Independent, Natasha told how her mother's death led her to seek out men who had a 'maternal' nature in her early relationships.  Natasha Gregson...
    This month, Perry Mason — the legendary Los Angeles defence attorney who yielded to no one in getting his clients off the rap — is returning to British television screens in a transformed characterisation by the award-winning Welsh actor Matthew Rhys. Mason was the creation of U.S. author Erle Stanley Gardner in some 80 novels that have sold more than 300 million copies, putting Gardner just two spots behind J.K. Rowling in the list of all-time bestseller writers. Rhys’s portrayal of the younger Mason as a dishevelled drunk in a filthy vest, who steals a tie from a corpse when he needs to smarten up before a judge, bears little comparison with the original star who brought Perry to the viewing millions. Canadian-born actor Raymond Burr was more than 6ft tall and immaculately dressed in expensive suits. He had a commanding voice and the aura of a pillar of the community. Perry Mason is pictured with his co-star Barbara Hale who played his secretary Della Street in The Case Of The Sulky Girl Burr played Mason for nine years...
