Like the first film, as STRANGE combination of comedy and misery.
super-fretting mother again, comedy AND death/drama
Back in 1943, Dorothy McGuire and Robert Young made an incredibly odd film, "Claudia". The title character (played by McGuire) was a ditsy lady who almost needed her mother and father to take care of her because she was so dependent and slow-witted. It seemed like a comedy through much of the film...yet it also was about death! Now, three years later the pair are back for "Claudia and David" and once again it's a very strange combination of moods. The beginning finds Claudia a comical lady who drives like a complete idiot and is totally scatterbrained. Yet, after a while, her son nearly dies from the Measels and her husband is nearly killed in an accident. Along the way, all sorts of angst occurs--stuff you'd NEVER expect given the film's set-up. Overall, I found the film baffling and not altogether enjoyable. A strange melange, that's for sure.
