Natalie Wood’s Teenage Rebellion

James Dean and Natalie Wood starred in Rebel Without a Cause (1955). She had been a child star, and at age 16 this was the first script she really wanted to do that her parents opposed. “Until then I did what I was told,” she said later. It worked out, as film fans know, because this role in a picture about teenage rebellion earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.¬†
