Forever Amber (1947) (DVD)
Linda Darnell stars in a 17th Century romantic adventure, based on the book by Kathleen Winsor, from 20th Century Fox.
Also starring Cornel Wilde, Richard Greene and George Sanders.
Amber (Linda Darnell) is an amorous courtesan able to conquer any man, ironically apart from the one man she wants.
Abandoned as a baby, Amber grows up a village maid, left abandoned pregnant and penniless by Bruce Carlton (Cornel Wilde), the galliant adventurer she desperately loves.
Amber uses her wits, beauty and courage to sleep her way to the highest position a woman could achieve in post Civil War Restoration England, that of favourite mistress of the Merry Monarch himself, Charles II (George Sanders), all in the hope that Bruce will return.
From whores and highwaymen, courtiers and noblemen, from the Great Plague to the Fire of London, Amber goes through it all during her life. But her heart remains true to only one man.
