The Banning Inn A specter dubbed the "White Lady" has been seen here as well as the smell of tobacco and fish from the spirit of a fisherman. Rumors of Natalie Wood`s ghost have also been talked about in the area where she drowned.
Although the tabloids speculated about a romantic triangle, a drunken argument, or the possibility of foul play, the official investigation arrived at a less sinister scenario: Natalie, alone on deck and a little drunk, somehow slipped and fell overboard. A poor swimmer with a lifelong fear of deep water, she probably struggled just to stay afloat before succumbing to fatigue and hypothermia. But what really happened that night may forever remain a mystery.
Natalie Wood, dead at only 43, was buried on December 2, 1981, at Westwood Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles. All of Hollywood mourned. As her West Side Story director Robert Wise said, “I’ve never known the town to be so shocked and upset and rocked by a personality’s death as it was by Natalie’s.”
