Storyline

Child bride Claudia Naughton has made life difficult for her husband David because she can't stand living so far away from her mother. She's also afraid her husband doesn't find her desirable enough. To remedy both situations, she sells their farm to an opera singer so they'll have to move back to the city near her mother, and she tries to make her husband jealous by flirting with a neighbor. Eventually, Claudia has to learn to grow when she discovers that she's about to become a mother and that her own mother is gravely ill. Written by Daniel Bubbeo <dbubbeo@cmp.com>

lovely movie
1 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film many years ago and remembered nearly all of it. It was a real treat to see it again. Dorothy McGuire recreates her stage role in a wonderful screen debut as Claudia, the guileless child bride of Robert Young. Her naiveté gets her into some difficulty with an amorous neighbor (Reginald Gardiner) and her attachment to her ailing mother (Ina Claire) is a concern to her husband. McGuire and Young make a charming screen couple - she is all energy and he is more deadpan - it's a nice contrast, and the two characters are obviously very much in love. Ina Claire turns in a warm and touching performance as Claudia's mother.

McGuire sparkles in this role, particularly in the transition when Claudia is forced to grow up almost overnight. Of course, she went on to have a great career that spanned nearly 50 years in film. It's easy to see why when you watch "Claudia." This was followed by a sequel, "Claudia and David."
