Goodbye Natalie Goodbye Splendour

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:09 pm on 28 November 2011

Thirty years ago this week actress Natalie Wood drowned in chilly waters off the California coast. She was 43 years old. Wood and her famous husband, Robert Wagner, along with their guest Christopher Walken, were aboard the 60 foot yacht Splendour. 'Goodbye Natalie Goodbye Splendour' contends that Wagner ordered the Captain, Dennis Davern, not to call the Coast Guard until it was too late and told him not to tell police the whole truth. Author Marti Rulli is on the line with us from New Jersey.
