Otto Preminger’s lush adaptation of Kathleen Winsor’s controversial best-selling novel, Forever Amber (1947) tells the notorious tale of Amber St. Clare (Linda Darnell), an opportunistic wench who, hopping from bed to bed, rises to become the mistress of the roguish King Charles II (George Sanders). Meanwhile, she can only briefly hold on to her true love, the cavalier Bruce Carlton (Cornel Wilde), although she tries her best, through the traumas of bubonic plague and the Great Fire of London. Juicy melodrama, beautifully shot by Leon Shamroy and featuring a stunning score by the one and only David Raksin.
