Charming lightweight comedy/drama

This 1946 sequel to the 1943 film "Claudia" depends largely on the charm of its stars Dorothy McGuire and Robert Young, and on that score it succeeds beautifully. Based on the popular 1940's novel by Rose Franken (who also wrote the screenplay) "Claudia and David" proves to be a brief, albeit good adaptation. There's nothing particularly thrilling or exciting in the story. It's more a quiet comedy with some dramatic elements, as it follows the trials and tribulations of this young married couple with a young child, as they experience life on their Connecticut farm. All in all, nothing spectacular, but quite worthwhile; the type of movie that is perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon.
