Inside Daisy Clover

Natalie Wood is an adolescent who goes from rags to riches as a Hollywood movie star in the 30s. Gavin Lambert wrote the screenplay for this 1965 feature, adapting his own satirical novel; the talented director Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird), apparently engulfed by studio overproduction, falters at times, not always knowing whether to play things straight or for laughs. Andre Previn wrote the sometimes memorable score, and Herbert Ross choreographed the musical numbers. With Robert Redford, Christopher Plummer, Ruth Gordon, and Roddy McDowall. 128 min. (JR)
