    To this day I've had a sneakin' suspicion that Wagner had something to do with Natalie's drowning. I know there was no thorough investigation of the incident but of course, Teddy Kennedy wasn't investigated very thoroughly either over the Chappaquidic drowning.

    De gustibus non est disputandum

  • HI Stumpy.


    There were three peple on the boat at the time besides Wagner and Natalie Wood Christopher Walken was a guest. Wagner believed that his wife and Walken were romantically involved. As all three were completely drunk what actually happened will probably never be known. But the thought must be it is strange that Wood who had a fear of water would of her own volition leave a state room to sleep in a dinghy.


    It brings back memories of the 1920s with I believe with the death of the director Ince and the intrigues with Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand.

    102 years ago the actor Chil Wills was born. Seen in many pictures his advertising of himself as the Best Supporting Actor in The Alamo did great harm to the picture and is reckoned to have been a major contributory factor in the picture not winning the number of Academy Awards it should have.

    I imagine Duke must have been pretty upset with Wills for all the shennanigans he pulled regarding "The Alamo" and the Academy Awards nominations that slipped through as a result. Out of seven nominations, "The Alamo" only received one Oscar - that for best sound.
    He must have forgiven him some because Wills appeared in "McLintock" a few years later.

  • I always liked Chill Wills. Did y'all ever see him in the "The Rounders" starring Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda? He plays a slick-talkin' rancher who's always gettin' over on Ford and Fonda, two down-on-their-luck cowboys. Pretty funny movie. Had an alcoholic horse in it. :lol:

  • Hi


    I agree Chill Wills, Jack Elam Walter Brennen L.Q Jones and the one who played in McLintock and tH Comancheros and whose name I can never remember were part of a indispensible group of supporting actors who made the western what it was.
