In the memoir “Little Sister,” Lana Wood writes Douglas attacked her sister Natalie in the summer of 1955 while Wood was shooting “The Searchers.”
Lana Wood says the attack took place at a meeting in a hotel arranged by Natalie’s mother who hoped Douglas could help open doors for the young actress.
Lana Wood writes, “It seemed like a long time passed before Natalie got back into the car, she looked awful, disheveled and very upset but she and their mother agreed that it would ruin Natalie’s career to publicly accuse Douglas of sexual assault.”
Kirk Douglas died in February 2020 aged 103. His son, actor Michael Douglas issued a statement saying, “May they both rest in peace.”
Natalie Wood drowned under mysterious circumstances in November 1981 at the age of 43.
