Inside Daisy Clover

Inside Daisy Clover

About

Daisy, aged 13 and no longer a child, wants to be a singing star in 1930s Hollywood. Lambert's adaptation of his own 1963 novel follows her progress, via sex and talent. She is shackled to a solitaire-addicted mother (Gordon), married to a startlingly handsome actor (Redford) who leaves her for his boyfriend, and smarmed over by a studio executive (Plummer).

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Robert Redford, Natalie Wood, Ruth Gordon, Roddy McDowall, Christopher Plummer, Katharine Bard
  • Director: Robert Mulligan
  • Writer: Gavin Lambert
  • Producer: Alan J Pakula, Robert Mulligan
  • Photographer: Charles Lang

In a nutshell

Wood has one great breakdown scene, reminiscent of Judy Garland (an inspiration for the character) but she lacks the star's range and depth of emotion, and the songs don't hold a candle to Arlen and Co.
