IT OI.LYWOOD—(W—It’s farewell
to youth these days for 18-
year-old Natalie Wood, who has
made as clean a break as possible
for a teen-ager bent on being an
adult. She gave up her girlish hair-
do and bobby socks.
This young woman is going to be
a femme fatale, she says. In any
event she no longer is interested
in what she calls ‘those nice-little-
Her present role opposite James
Dean in Warners' “Rebel Without
a Cause” indicates her program is
already in operation. It’s an emo-
tion-packed portrayal — definitely
not next-door stuff.
Miss Wood would not let herself
think about this adult business un-
til she was sure she had made the
difficult transition from child act-
ress to mature roles. She thinks
she’s lucky, for many child actors
have failed to make the transition
and have been forgotten.
I was quite frightened about
my future,” she said. “Many pro-
ducers and directors think child
actresses never can grow up, you
know. They don’t want to give us
Began at Four
Miss Wood began her acting ca-
reer when she was four years old.
She successfully avoided the period
when she might have been too
young for adult roles and too old
for child parts.
The spot opposite Dean delighted
the fragile-appearing, 92 pound pe-
tite actress who was chosen in 1947
by Parents Magazine the “most
talented juvenile actress of the
year.” This award, incidentally,
was followed in 1949 by her selec-
tion as “child star of the year”
by the Children’s Day National
Council of New York.
“I saw James Dean in ‘East of
Eden’," she said. “I went home
and prayed that I could work with
him some day.
“I guess my prayers were an-
swered, because one day I was
tested for ‘Rebel.’ I was a bundle
of nerves for three weeks until I
was called and told I’d won the

three years at the University of
Waz, who entered the school at
the age of 26, graduated last June
after licking a siege of bulbar polio
that struck him during his sopho-
more year. He spent weeks in a
hospital fighting the disease, and
when he first tried to go back to,
school his strength didn’t hold out.
Then he took another crack at it
eight months later.
Waz persuaded authorities to let
him attempt to complete his last
three years in two in the tough |
field of physics — and he didn’t
disappoint them. He also worked
steadily at a job, helping with the
university’s large cyclotron.
For a long time he spoke with
