New Coroner’s Report Reveals Natalie Wood Was Beaten Before Drowning Death

The Lovely and Tragic Natalie Wood


Blink. Blink.  Yeah.  I KNOW.

Listen, I never believed for one second that Natalie Wood stumbled around in a nightgown and jacket  to take a little time out on the dinghy attached to the yacht The Splendor that fateful night.  Nor do I believe she got close enough to the edge to “fall” into the drink.  Anyone who is terrified of “dark water” will tell you, NO WAY.  In my mind there has been a Big Secret between Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken about what really happened that night off the coast of Catalina.

Look what we have here:

“An explosive new coroner’s report reveals Hollywood star Natalie Wood was likely beaten aboard her yacht before he went overboard and drowned in 1981.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s examination of the Wood case also found flaws in ‘every major’ finding of the previous autopsy report that led medical examiners to rule the Hollywood star’s death an accident.

It’s the latest step toward settling the question of whether Wood was murdered, or whether she accidentally fell overboard on her 60-foot yacht and drowned – as the original police investigation concluded.

The new coroner’s examination asserts that bruises found on the actress’ wrists, knees, and ankles were consistent with her being beaten…”

Natalie and Christopher were filming “Brainstorm” together at the time of her death.  As well already know, the trio all went out drinking earlier the evening she died.  Let me ask you something.  Would Christopher have enough emotion invested in Natalie to beat the crap out of his co-star–or does that sound like something her possibly jealous and angry husband might do?

Robert Wagner

Just asking.

‘Seven Psychopaths’ REVIEW By David E. – A Dude’s Eye-View


I have to admit that I wasn’t aware of this movie until just a month or two ago when the TV ads started ramping up for its release. Without knowing anything about the movies plot my reaction to the trailer was mixed. A movie about 7 killers that kill things while saying quirky one liners… meh, I thought.  For the record, if that’s all you think this movie is then you are very wrong.

The movie centers around Marty (Colin Farrell) a screenwriter (and raging alcoholic) who is experiencing writers block with his latest screenplay called Seven Psychopaths. His best friend Billy (Sam Rockwell) is a wanna-be actor who supplements his income by stealing people’s pets and then returning them to their owners for the reward money. Hans (Christopher Walken) is Billy’s partner, and uses the money to help pay for cancer treatments for his ailing wife. Marty wants to write a movie about psychopaths and their escapades, but so far only has one character to use in his script. This changes though once Billy and Hans kidnap a dog belonging to mob boss Charlie (Woody Harrelson) who really loves his dog and is NOT happy that its been stolen.

The main characters in this movie all shine, but I have to single out Christopher Walken’s performance. He is creepy and ponderous, and playful here. Vintage Walken, not the parody of himself that stand up comics often go to for a laugh. He plays a significant role towards the end of the movie and in doing so reminds everyone exactly how good of an actor he is.

It doesn’t take long into this movie before you realize that through Marty the movie is self referential and at one point goes as far as to tell the audience what to expect in terms of how it will end. Many movies that attempt to go this route often fail but Psychopaths does it masterfully revealing layer after layer of superb story telling. The story jumps around but only a little bit and it serves the story well in that when you are taken away from the main story-line what you are being shown always factors into what you’ll see later on.

The movie is not for the faint of heart however. Within the first 5 minutes two people are brutally murdered and the camera doesn’t cut away. By the time the movie’s over there will have been at least 7 or 8 more and except for one person, the film shows it to you in disgusting detail. Yet surprising for such a violent film the overall tone is not dark or disheartening. If I had to describe it I would say that it’s a morbidly cheerful movie despite it all of its gruesome violence.

Seven Psychopaths Trailer Official [HD 1080] -… by ClevverMovies

Seven Psychopaths is a special movie. I won’t say that it’s better than Pulp Fiction–because its not, but Tarantino’s classic is the first movie that comes to my mind when I try to compare it to something else. The movie is MORE than worth your time. IF you can stomach the violence. Oh, one more thing. Make sure you stay for the credits when it’s over.

Remember, its a cheerful movie but its a morbid one as well.

Natalie Wood Death Certificate Changed to ‘Undetermined’ Cause of Death

Well, now.  I wonder if Christopher Walken and Robert Wagner are a little nervous about this…TMZ is reporting that legendary actress, Natalie Wood’s death certificate has been change from “accident” to “undetermined” as the cause of death.

via TMZ:

Natalie Wood’s death certificate has been changed from “Accident” to “Undetermined” … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the L.A. County Coroner filed documents making the change late last month.

Members of Wood’s family tell TMZ … detectives from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department — which has reopened the death investigation — paid them a visit earlier today informing them of the change. They tell us … detectives told them the change was made in part because some of the bruises on Wood’s body were inconsistent with death by accident.

Family members add … they were told at this point authorities can’t prove definitively Wood’s death was accidental or the result of foul play. Detectives did tell family members Wood’s death was definitely from drowning, but the way she ended up in the water is unclear.

Wood died November 29, 1981 after an alcohol-fueled party on a boat off Catalina with Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken on board.

It’s been reported repeatedly that Natalie Wood was terrified of deep, dark water–which is why there has always been the looming question of why she would have tried to leave the yacht by dinghy that fateful night.  I hope this “undetermined” case is solved before my lifetime…and theirs. Ahem.
