Product Description

Remember one of Hollywood's biggest stars with this Natalie Wood Collection box set featuring:

Inside Daisy Clover: Who better to play a teen screen sensation than the star who was one of film's greatest child actors? Natalie Wood and up-and-comer Robert Redford shine in this inside-Tinseltown tale.
Sex and the Single Girl: From Helen Gurley Brown's bestseller. Natalie Wood is the girl who writes the book on love, and Henry Fonda, Tony Curtis, and Lauren Bacall join her in the boudoir bedlam that follows.
Gypsy: You gotta have a gimmick. Stripper Gypsy Rose Lee (Wood) has one of the best, thanks to the coaching of stage mom Rosalind Russell. A vibrant adaptation of the Styne-Sondheim Broadway smash.
Splendor in the Grass: Their hearts say yes. Their hometown says no. Repression reaps tragedy in a compelling tale of teenage lovers in 1920s Kansas. Natalie Wood teams up with screen-debuting Warren Beatty.
Bombers B-52: Just when Air Force sergeant Chuck Brennan (Karl Malden) is deciding whether to re-up his enlistment or retire, he learns that his brave but reckless commander, pilot Jim Herlihy (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.), has taken a shine to his lovely daughter (Natalie Wood). Now the old veteran, the young flyboy and the beautiful woman must come to terms with their relationships, both on the base and off.
Cash McCall: Cash McCall (James Garner) is a young and slick business man who buys failing businesses and resells them. Grant Austen's Plastics is even more of a prize to Cash, for he is also making a bid for Austen's beautiful daughter, Lory (Wood). This is Cash's toughest deal yet.

Synopsis

SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS (1961) - Deanie (Wood) is a teenager eager to do right in her 1920s Kansas town, but the emotions she shares with boyfriend Bud (Warren Beatty) are too strong. The conflict between behavior and desire may ruin them both in this Oscar® winner* from director Elia Kazan.
GYPSY (1962) - This film version of the Broadway hit sweeps you up in the roller-coaster relationship of Louise (Wood), the wallflower who blossoms into sophisticated stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, and her ambitious mother, Rose (Rosalind Russell). Karl Malden costars.
SEX AND THE SINGLE GIRL (1964) - Snoopy magazine editor Bob Weston (Tony Curtis) and Sex and the Single Girl author Helen Gurley Brown (Wood) square off in a will-she/won't-she breezy battle of the sexes. Henry Fonda and Lauren Bacall join in the comic combat as a warring neighbor couple.
INSIDE DAISY CLOVER (1965) - Daisy Clover (Wood) is a star at 15 – but in the 1930s, "star treatment" can mean anything from being discovered to being discarded. Robert Redford and Ruth Gordon costar in this blend of Hollywood stardust and melodrama.

This is worth owning for 'Gypsy' alone, presented here in the original aspect ratio. You'll also have 'Splendour in the Grass', which is superb, deeply engaging, and with a beautiful music score; also 'Inside Daisy Clover', which features Natalie giving it her best accompanied by a great Andre Previn score. The weakest film is 'Sex and the Single Girl', not a patch on Doris Day and Rock Hudson, but 'Cash McCall and 'Bombers B52' are very watchable.

The movies are beautifully presented, blemish-free in their original ratios. The extras are odd: Looney Tunes from the same year as the movies. A shame there wasn't any relevant material, then this boxed set would be even better,

If you're a natlie Wood fan, you shouldn't think twice about getting this. If you're just browsing and have a little money burning a hole in your pocket, treat yourself! 'Gypsy' is tremendous fun, and 'Splendour in the Grass' is very moving.

I bought the 4 disc version of this box set chiefly to get the remastered widescreen print of "Gypsy" that was previously available in the more expensive 6-disc edition. However, despite claiming on the box that it contains a stereo soundtrack version in it's original 2.40:1 aspect ratio, Warners have just put the awful original DVD release inside which is mono, pan and scanned and looks absolutely dire. They pulled the same trick in the "Must See Musicals" 15-disc box set. What exactly is the point of going to the trouble and expense of remastering a film but then continuing to release an inferior out of date edition (and worse, putting misleading information on the packaging)? It's a shame because otherwise this would have been a great set. As it is, it feels like being short-changed.

I'm from Texas,and I've been ordering from Amazon for several years. In the late spring, I ordered an all region DVD player. I am so glad I did! In the US, the Natalie Wood Boxset is fairley expensive, but not in the UK. Of course, I have to check every time. Sometimes something is cheaper over here. I am so proud of this collection. It is in perfect condition. The movies are wonderful. I love the UK!

For the price I paid this was excellent value. With such a brief career, it is seldom one gets the chance to see the talented Natalie Wood.
The extras included on the disks make viewing them like a nostalgic visit to the cinema when you used to get more than just the main feature. THey don't go so far as to include a second feature, but you do get a cartoon and the Trailer.
The selection is good from the point of view that it shows her in a range of acting styles. Gypsy and Splendor in the Grass and both remastered versions.
I enjoyed them so much I watched all 6 over a single weekend.

Along with many others I had always been keen to obtain a fully widescreen version of GYPSY but reviews of the copy obtainable as a single DVD were very off putting - until recently that is when I came across a review advising on this box set. WOW!!! a pristine fully re-mastered widescreen copy of GYPSY is in this box set along with five other films in which Natalie starred. This is a good cross section of her career and well worth the purchase price.

Has anyone bought this? I had pre-ordered this boxset, but cancelled it, as I am worried about it saying only FOUR discs for SIX films, which in the US are on one disc each.

So my question is: How many films and how many discs are really included here?

I have rated this item 4 stars, provided that it includes all 6 films on 1 DVD each and in the same quality as the US boxset. The missing star is for the missing extras, except for "Gypsy".

EDIT: I ordered and received this box set in the meantime, and it's very good value, complete with 6 discs, not lacking anything from the US set, neither in quality nor anything else. :-)
