There will be those who may claim Inside Daisy Clover is based upon the true-life story of an actress who rose to shining blonde stardom. Alan J. Pakula and Robert Mulligan focus their sights upon a teenage beach gamin who becomes a Hollywood star of the s. Covering a two-year period, the outcome is at times disjointed and episodic as the title character played by Natalie Wood emerges more nebulous than definitive. Femme star seems to be eternally searching for the meaning of her role; she is almost inarticulate for long intervals and whoever is in a scene with her generally engages in a monolog since there is seldom dialog between them.
And when I say secondary, I mean the plot is awful. At over two hours, the story of a girl who becomes a celebrity is presented in a boring and melodramatic way. Daisy Clover Natalie Wood is a fifteen-year-old waif who gets a chance at being a Hollywood star. As her fame rapidly rises she attracts the attention of producer Raymond Swan Christopher Plummer who seeks to control her. I should have written this review a month ago, so apologies if I muddle up plot details. From the beginning, you have to take the fact that Daisy is fifteen on faith alone because there is no way to believe that Wood who was 27 at the time is that age. The film does detail the harsh choices actors did make in the early decades including changing their family histories, and even severing ties with family members that could prove harmful to their careers.
