Lana Wood

  1. Carole Ann Campbell, I’ll Cry Tomorrow, 1955.      Nearly the screen debut of Natalie’s kid sister - at age eight. Trouble was Campbell was six…. All the better to portray the infancy of alcoholic Broadway/Hollywood singing star Lillian Roth. Although never A Star (A Bond Girl sure, but never A Star), Lana had won 68 screen roles by 2016, compared to Natalie’s 74 - they both played Debbie Edwards in The Searchers, 1955.
  2. Joey Heatherton, Where Love Has Gone, 1964 We all knew where this murky melo came from. Harold Robbins’ sleazy novel, of course. More essentially from the real, raw  Hollywod life he pinched it from. About poor Cheryl Crane, driven to kill the apallingly named  gangster Johnny Stompanato to prevent him beating her mother, Lana Turner to death.  Patty Duke, Natalie Wood’s TV  actress sister, Lana,  and the unknown Laurel Goodwin, Deborah Walley, were supplanted  by  the prettier but weak Heatherton as The Dagfhter. In Robbins’ version, she’s also in love with The Guy and was trying to kill The Mom when he got in the way. Yuck! Many times over.
