“You’re Gonna Hear from Me,” 15-year-old gamine Daisy Clover sings from the silver screen to an adoring public, although in the 1930s, “star treatment” can go all the way from being discovered to being discarded. Natalie Wood plays the title role with gusto in this blend of Hollywood stardust and melodrama from the producer/director team (Alan J. Pakula and Robert Mulligan) that had already sublimely showcased her in Love with the Proper Stranger. Also heard from are Wood’s costars Robert Redford (as the vain movie star who weds Daisy) and Ruth Gordon (as Daisy’s mother), both winning Golden Globes® for their work here (Gordon earned an Oscar nomination as well).
Natalie Wood plays the title role in this tale of a 1930s child star who goes from discovered to discarded in a stunningly short amount of time. The producer/director team of Alan J. Pakula and Robert Mulligan blend hard-edged cynicism and tear-jerking sentiment in this coming of age tale set during Hollywood’s Golden Age. 15-year-old gamine Daisy Clover doesn’t have much – an impoverished life on the pier with her off-kilter mom (Ruth Gordon, amazing as always), the attentions of boys and men that have aged her beyond her years, and singing. The recording of a novelty song for her birthday leads to a different kind of attention – that of a studio agent (Roddy McDowall) and powerful producer (Christopher Plummer). As Daisy is crafted into being America’s favorite singing street urchin, she gets seduced by matinee idol Wade Lewis (Robert Redford) …and her nightmare is just beginning. Set in the past, but clearly commenting on the burgeoning youth rebellion in the ’60s, Inside Daisy Clover arrives looking sparkling and new thanks to this exquisite 1080p presentation on Blu-ray Disc.
