Claudelle Inglish (1961)

Notes: 1/17/11
Uninteresting soaper.
Constance Ford is a scene-stealer. Liked her in A Summer Place.
Not classy enough to be Peyton Place and not sexy enough to be God's Little Acre.
A stale melodrama with good actors, but little entertainment.
Not entirely sure why this was nominated for Costume Design, but I guess it's authentic.
Ending = annoying

Review: C-
Stale melodrama attempts to be sexy, but lacks any kind of spark or personality in its characters or story. Diane McBain and Chad Everett are each rather unremarkable as young lovers. Arthur Kennedy and Constance Ford stand out as the parents of McBain's title character. The ending reinforces the frustrating feeling that the film causes as it plods along.
