Natalie and R.J.
Hollywood’s Star-Crossed Lovers
Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood were considered Hollywood royalty. The story of their relationship and her sudden death in 1981 makes for a juicy biography. Recently, Wagner was named a “person of interest” in the death of Natalie Wood. I could see a resurgence of interest in the case, and in their lives. In the meantime, this book has been languishing in the biographies.
As a weeding candidate, this would probably vary library by library depending on the interest of your community. The recent interest could spark a resurgence for this title, but for now, I wouldn’t really hesitate in weeding the particular book. There are more current books and even RJ himself penned a memoir back in 2009.
The story of Natalie Wood will probably always be one of those great mysteries and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another, especially if new evidence in her death surfaces.
