Splendor in the Grass

I hadn't seen Splendor In The Grass in a long, long time, but watched it tonight on TCM. Staring Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty, it was nominated for several Oscars in 1961 and won for best screenplay.

I adore Natalie Wood. She was so beautiful, and so talented. What a shame she died so young. And what a treat to see Warren Beatty in his first film role.
