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.
