Product Description

Natalie Wood Collection (DVD)

Amazon.com

The inclusion of the inside-Hollywood exposé Inside Daisy Clover in this boxed set underscores the somewhat melancholy legacy of a once-bright star, Natalie Wood, who always seemed just a bit overwhelmed by the manufactured nature of cinematic success. The Natalie Wood Collection groups six pictures from the middle phase of Wood's career, when she was one of the biggest female stars in the movies. The earliest film, Bombers B-52, is from the ingénue stage, with Wood cast as the daughter of meat-and-potatoes military lifer Karl Malden, and romanced by supposedly dashing (but fatally wooden) flyboy Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. Smoothly directed by Gordon Douglas, the movie's got some fine footage of airplanes, if it lacks excitement in other aspects. Cash McCall (1959) is an oddball time capsule, with James Garner as a Donald Trump-like business buccaneer and Wood as the woman who doesn't want to love him. The plotline is a stupefying tale of corporate intrigue, but the supporting cast is flavorful. Wood turned a corner with her Oscar-nominated role in Splendor in the Grass (1961), Elia Kazan's classic about an ill-fated 1920s love story between fragile Wood and small-town prince Warren Beatty (his first big-screen role). The real-life affair between the two stars fuels the tangible passion of the movie, which has one of the most affecting final reels of this era. Gypsy (1962) is on everybody's shortlist of greatest Broadway musicals (songs by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim), and the movie version doesn't disappoint. Wood, rarely more gorgeous, plays the vaudeville child trouper who would grow up to be the legendary stripper Gypsy Rose Lee; Rosalind Russell is her monstrous stage mother. Sex and the Single Girl (1964) borrows its title from the best-selling Helen Gurley Brown advice book. The movie is a vintage (practically antique) Sixties sex farce, with Tony Curtis as a writer for a dirty magazine who wants to discredit a prominent psychologist and expert on sex (that's Natalie). Director Richard Quine uncorks some amusing sight gags, and Henry Fonda and Lauren Bacall add class, but the movie leans too much on leering. Finally, Inside Daisy Clover (1966) is a jaundiced tale of a Judy Garland-like tomboy sent through the Hollywood wringer as a synthetic starlet. Wood is spirited in the lead role, Christopher Plummer is snakelike as a studio boss, and Robert Redford enjoys himself as a devilish movie star. But the film almost chokes on its own cynicism (the film's basically one long demonstration of how audiences are suckers), despite the intelligence of director Robert Mulligan & co. It's impossible not to relate the storyline to Wood's own curious career, and she looks as though she's found a role to identify with completely. Extras in the set are minimal, but prints are uniformly fine. --Robert Horton

Even though this is called a Signature Collection, the artwork I have seen doesn't indicate the same classic style that is present on the other Warner signature collections. The last one to be released was the Burt Lancaster Signature collection late in 2007. This set shall contain six films.

SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS (1961) - Directed by Elia Kazan stars Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty as young lovers during the 1920's who can't be together due to society's external pressures and the internal pressures of the girl's fragile mental state.

SEX AND THE SINGLE GIRL (1964)Directed by Richard Quine. Natalie Wood stars as Helen Gurley Brown. A writer at a tabloid magazine (Tony Curtis) wants to interview Miss Brown, but the only way he can do so is to masquerade as a patient.

INSIDE DAISY CLOVER (1965) Directed by Robert Mulligan. Set in the 1930's Daisy is a teenager who becomes a star against the odds. She has to find a way to deal with her newfound fame. Christopher Plummer plays the studio executive that controls Daisy's every move.

GYPSY (Deluxe Edition) (1962) Directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Story of the burlesque queen includes a great performance by Rosalind Russell as her stage mother and Karl Malden as the agent/family friend. Gypsy is not the center of attention of the act or of the family until her sister - the real star up to that point - elopes at the ripe old age of 13. That younger sister is played by Ann Jillian.

BOMBERS B-52 (1957) - Directed by Gordon Douglas. Stars Karl Malden as Master Sergeant Chuck V. Brennan who has a strong dislike for hot-shot Colonel Jim Herlihy, the commanding officer of the 329th Bomber Squadron. When Herlihy takes a liking to Brennan's daughter (Natalie Wood) the dislike grows even more.

I wish these had been released as separate DVDs, but the most important thing is that this is the first time many of these films have been released on video in their original aspect ratios!

Since Amazon's listing can only handle one aspect ratio, the films are presented as follows, and all are anamorphic presentations:

Bombers B-52 - 2:35:1
Cash McCall - 1.85:1
Splendor in the Grass - 1.85:1
Gypsy - 2.35:1
Sex and the Single Girl - 1.85:1
Inside Daisy Clover - 2.35:1

Note that this is the first time Cash McCall has been seen in its original aspect ratio since its theatrical release; even Turner Classic Movies only has a pan & scan 1.33:1 copy.

Natalie Wood definitely deserves a tribute. This DVD box set, comprised of movies she made for Warner Brothers studio, is definitely a mixed bag. No one will argue that "Bombers B-52" or "Cash McCall" are especially memorable, or among Natalie's best work. That leaves us with two classics ("Splendor In The Grass" and "Gypsy"), one silly farce ("Sex And The Single Girl") and one oddity that is interesting and worthwhile ("Inside Daisy Clover").
"Splendor In The Grass" (1961) is easily the best film in this box set, and probably the quintessential Natalie Wood film. Deanie and Bud (Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty) are in love, but her mother (Audrey Christie) tells her that "nice girls don't enjoy sex." Deanie is confused, especially with the example of Bud's promiscuous and free-spirited sister Jenny (Barbara Loden) before her. Bud wants to stay on the family farm and marry Deanie, but his overbearing father (Pat Hingle) wants him to go to Harvard. Deanie's sexual repression leads to a dangerous suicide attempt at a waterfall (Natalie did the frightening swimming scene herself) and mental breakdown. Natalie, who received an Oscar nomination, is an appealing mixture of poignancy and strength, and Warren Beatty is quite impressive in his film debut. "Splendor" holds up extremely well. If you don't believe me, just watch the terrible TV remake from the 1980's with Melissa Gilbert, mis-cast and totally out of her depth, in Natalie's role. The original, with Natalie, is a classic. (5 Stars). 1961 was an excellent year, professionally, for Natalie. Following "Splendor," she gave another beautiful performance, as Maria in the Oscar winning smash mega-hit "West Side Story.

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Man VINE VOICE on February 1, 2009
Format: DVD
A generation of moviegoers identify Natalie Wood with Maria, the character she portrayed in the Academy Award-winning "West Side Story" (1961). Her film career dates back to the 1940's, when she appeared as a child star in several films, the most famous, "The Miracle on 34th Street" (1947), when she was only nine.

"The Natalie Wood Collection" continues the admirable policy by Warner Home Video of assembling movies featuring popular stars into box sets. The six feature films in this new collection are a mixed bag. "Bombers B-52" (1957) is a routine love story costarring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., as Wood's love interest and Karl Malden as her career military father who objects to their romance. Unfortunately, Wood is overshadowed here by CinemaScope photography of jet planes doing intricate aerial maneuvers.

"Cash McCall" (1960), heavy on soap opera, costars James Garner in the title role of a business tycoon who thrives on buying and selling companies for profit. McCall's acquisition plan for Grant Austen's (Dean Jagger) company is complicated when he learns that Austen's daughter (Wood) is the same girl with whom he once had a summer romance.

"Sex and the Single Girl" (1964) pairs Wood with Tony Curtis in a romantic comedy with supporting roles by Henry Fonda and Lauren Bacall.
Two show business films, "Gypsy" (1962) and "Inside Daisy Clover" (1965), go behind the scenes of vaudeville and motion pictures, respectively. In both, Wood starts out as an average girl who, because of looks and drive, blossoms into a star while learning that stardom has its dark downside.

The best film in the set is "Splendor in the Grass" (1961).
