Daisy Clover is a 15 year old Tomboy who dreams of being a Hollywood star. After auditioning for producer Raymond Swan of Swan studios she becomes the toast of Hollywood. Daisy must then come to terms with her new found fame and the 1930's Hollywood star treatment.Written by
A decidedly odd film that is wonderfully script and filmed, with lovely performances from Natalie Wood, Robert Redford and Christopher Plummer (of course). Upon first viewing this film I thought it to be rather strange because it is very unlike most movies I have seen. It tells the story of the tomboyish Daisy Clover in such a truthful and sometimes upsetting manner that you have to adjust to it. It is also very unsettling and rather thrilling to see Christopher Plummer as a sort of villain or The Prince of Darkness as Robert Redford's character calls him. His manic wife is also brilliant, especially in the scene where she gives her drunken confession to Daisy about her affair with Robert Redford. But of course this film would not be half of what it is without the great and adventurous acting skills of Natalie Wood, who was able to be a convincing fifteen year old when she was in her late twenties. The end of the film is perfect, and shows that Daisy Clover is truly a free spirit. I highly recommend this film to all of those who loved Natalie Wood and such films as Bare Foot Contessa.
