Claudelle

Claudelle, we must go away and start a new life. This fruitless sharecropping has just cost me my wife. Believe me, in every way, I loved your mother. Frustrated and annoyed, she left me for another. I know you were heartbroken about what happened to Linn. You will love someone else after we begin again. A bunch of other men want to hold you in their arms. They fall peril to all of your feminine charms. Your mother wanted you to marry a man fat and old. To her, he seemed to be worth his weight in gold. You knew deep inside he was not right for you. Never did you have feelings for him that were true. What sadness and grief love sometimes brings. Your flirting and coquetry have made a mess of things. Too many men are now competing for you. We will leave these surroundings and start anew. Based on the novel "Claudelle Inglish" by the late Erskine Caldwell and the 1961 film with the same title.
