Discuss Splendor in the Grass

The expressionistic acting... the themes of sexual repression, whether self imposed or societal... the idealism of youth... control, fatalism and the supremacy of the present in the face of an uncertain future...

It's so good... I can't think of a recent young adult drama that is as moving... Quality ending 😎

Natalie Wood was wonderful in this...

She was also terrific in that story as well.

What's creepy about SPLENDOR is how she said in an interview that she was TERRIFIED when she did the scene in the WATER because being in WATER scared her.

And then she drowns at age 41.

I had no idea that's how she died... I don't follow celebrities, so I'm not familiar with their personal histories...

When she died it was front page news due to the way she died, so even if you didn't follow a celebrity you'd still have known about her death if you watched the news.

Then they also played the clip of the interview she did on the talk show ... due to the way it was as if she also had a phobia of water ... which also made it seem as if she also had a premonition that she would die that way.

And then they also played clips from the film where she did the scene in the water where she's rescued by Warren Beatty.

Since she'd also been acting ever since she was a child, she was also well known to most people at the time she died.
