I have never seen Daisy Clover is it any good?

It definitely has its moments. There's a chilling scene where Wood's character has a nervous breakdown in a recording booth in the middle of looping a cheery song for a movie musical.

Let's not forget her final film that had to be wrapped AFTER her controversial death - Brainstorm. Not the best acting on her part but a memorable SciFi (of sorts) film about "tapping into higher brain functions" and what happens as one dies.

Near the end of principal photography Wood was about to film a crucial, climactic scene for the movie when she drowned on November 29, 1981, leaving production in limbo for almost two years. MGM considered offering the rights to Paramount Pictures so the movie could be finished but ultimately Producer/Director Doug Trumbull decided to create an ending using body doubles and Natalie Wood soundalikes along with already-shot footage, completing production for a 1983 release. Stories had Natalie's sister Lana Wood doing certain scenes, but it wasn't really needed. Most of the film had been shot.

Looks like we have to hope for a 2009 release now. I really would like to see them release Penelope & Sex and the Single Girl.

For my own part, I'd like to see Rebel Without a Cause and West Side Story released as part of this collection one day. Posted Image

There was a nice 2-disc set of West Side Story released a few years ago.

Yeah, sorry about that. I don't mean to imply that there aren't good releases of films out there already. Posted Image

I had no idea, that is until you mentioned it.

It's owned by MGM/UA. Natalie was a longtime Warners contract player for roughly a decade (circa 1955-65, the height of her film career), so most of her films, along with her MGM films Penelope, All The Fine Young Cannibals (her only feature film with Robert Wagner), and her final film Brainstorm are under the jurisdiction of Warner Home Video.
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...
