Claudia and David is a 1946 film directed by Walter Lang. It stars Dorothy McGuire and Robert Young.[2] Dorothy McGuire and Robert Young repeat their roles from the film Claudia (1943) Like its predecessor, Claudia and David was based on a series of short stories by Rose Franken, which also inspired a successful stage play and radio series.


Claudia (Dorothy McGuire), still charmingly naive and a bit nervous, is struggling with the responsibilities of marriage and parenthood in their rural Connecticut town. Jealousy creeps into the relationship when Elizabeth (Mary Astor) starts consulting David on a building project, while Claudia is attracting the uninvited attentions of Phil (John Sutton), who happens to be married.[3]
