CHAPTER ONE: WHO IS NATALIE WOOD?
She was gorgeous, glamorous -- and doomed. But who really was Natalie Wood - the Hollywood super-siren who was enormous in life - and even bigger in death? Now, learn the real story, from her early years as a child star to her zenith as red carpet royalty - as well as the story of the L.A. Sheriff's homicide detective who has made it his cause to bring peace to her soul. In a chilling revelation, Detective Ralph Hernandez reveals new - and explosive - facts about Natalie's death, including a never-before-heard autopsy report that will change everything you have ever known about the case that has haunted Tinsel town for almost four decades.
CHAPTER TWO: A REBELLIOUS TEEN
From her earliest years, Natalie Wood was bred for fame and fortune - and also destruction. We'll chart how her mother, Marie Gurden, would stop at nothing to see her daughter's name in lights, once even looking away after her daughter's rape for fear it would anger the studio system that would decide her fate.
