1981 press conference: The coroner's autopsy indicated Ms. Wood had died by accident. ...She attempted to board this rubber dinghy. It was here that she fell and drowned.
Dennis Davern: "That story is 100-percent false. Natalie would never, in a million years, take that dinghy out by herself... She was...deathly afraid of the water."
Sam Kashner: "Dennis Davern was a member of their family...He was both a bodyguard and a confidant of Natalie's."
Davern's been accused of exploiting that relationship. He tried to sell his story - and collaborated with Marti Rulli on a tell-all book - but, he says, it's a matter of conscience.
Dennis Davern: "What I really wanted was to give Natalie a voice."
Sam Kashner: Natalie was one of the biggest film stars imaginable. She was America's sweetheart. America had grown up with her. She was the little doubting girl in 'Miracle on 34th Street' and then she was running with the sort of troubled pack in 'Rebel Without a Cause.' ...She was in 'West Side Story,' 'Splendor in the Grass' and 'Gypsy.'

Sam Kashner: "As soon as Chris Walken walked up the gang plank to the Splendour in his pea coat with the collar turned up, Robert Wagner took an instant dislike to him...Chris was fresh off winning the Academy Award for the 'Deer Hunter.'"
Dennis Davern: "You could see a little bit of jealousy from Robert Wagner...And it just kept getting more tense."
Sam Kashner: "There was just volcanic amount of alcohol consumed...the weekend goes from bad to worse."
SATURDAY, NOV. 28
Dennis Davern: "Christopher and Natalie went ashore to the restaurant and had a few drinks. RJ and myself we went in later. When RJ...saw Natalie and Christopher sitting at the bar laughing and having a wonderful time, he started to...really really heat up.

"Natalie went down below... Christopher went into his stateroom. Then RJ went into...Natalie and RJ's room and started arguing, yelling...things being thrown about.And then the fighting went back to the back of the boat and ... then it was quiet.
