Natalie Wood & Warren Beatty 1961

Following the release of the Oscar winning film "Splendor in the Grass", Natalie Wood and costar Warren Beatty toured Europe while promoting their work, seen here touring Rome, Italy.

The film opens in 1928 following the young couple through their teen years, dealing with their own desires clashing with the more conservative ideals of the time. Many of the taboo subjects explored in the drama also reflect the changing landscape of the American culture of the times with the burgeoning sexual revoultion that was overtaking society at the time.
