The film starred George Segal and Natalie Wood as a California couple in the late 1970s struggling to maintain their “happily married” status as all their friends begin to get divorces and seem to be caught up in the decadence of the sexual revolution and the “ME” era. This is the last completed theatrical release Natalie Wood made before her death in 1981.
Natalie Wood (July 20, 1938 – November 29, 1981) shot to stardom at 16 when she co-starred with James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause (1955). In 1961, she played Maria in West Side Story and was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in Splendor in the Grass. She died tragically, drowning during a boating trip in 1981. The circumstances of her death remain controversial.
