a new perfume in her name. The fact that I don't plan to wear it confirms my obsession with Natalie Wood has not crossed over into unhealthy. It remains safely borderline.
For those new readers to my blog, whenever I have a post and can't find an appropriate picture to go with it I just feature some Natalie Wood photos.
But today I'm going to do something better. (I have your attention now, don't it?)
So much of eroticism is in the mind. Seeing what we're
forbidden to see is what makes something stimulating. And I'm going to
show you Natalie Wood's most erotic scene. But it's not sexy for the
reason you expect.
It's the famous bathtub scene in SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS. You're thinking
-- oh sure, it's erotic because she's naked in a bathtub. Other than
her bare back you don't really see anything. Still, you're saying --
just the suggestion that she's naked is exciting. Nope. That's not
So back to SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS. There was this scene in the bathtub.
It would look unnatural for someone to be naked except for a bracelet
and so somehow director Elia Kazan convinced her to remove it.
So that's what erotic! Not to turn this blog into X-rated porn, but in the following scene you actually see Natalie Wood's left wrist. Is that a giant turn-on or what?
