Before the 1960s everyone thought of Natalie Wood as strictly a child actress. She appeared in The Searchers and Majorie Morningstar, but in the 1960s her career really went into the stratosphere. She worked on huge films like West Side Story, Splendor in the Grass, and Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, a film that not only still resonates with audiences but that continues to inform romantic dramas.

During this time Wood proved to be both a profitable actress and someone who didn’t take themselves too seriously. In 1966 she received the Harvard Lampoon’s Worst Actress of the Year Award and turned up in person to accept it. The Harvard Crimson wrote she was "quite a good sport.”
