“Lush theatricalism…certainly a more becoming Amber could hardly be conceived than the firm, luxurious creature that Linda Darnell makes.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

“A surefire wicket-spinner…a wealth of derring-do, 17th-century knavery and debauchery, and the rest of a depraved court’s atmosphere. It’s solid escapology.”
– Variety

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.

I am hoping this new Twilight Time Blu-ray release of FOREVER AMBER is the fully restored version, since the past releases on DVD and VHS and Laserdisc were incomplete. The ending was shortened by the censors years ago, and Image Entertainment was planning a full restoration of the original ending on Image Laserdisc just about the time that Laserdiscs were becoming extinct with the booming sales of up and coming DVDs.Please release this beautiful film in it's original glory, without the butchered and abrupt release version ending. In case anyone is interested in the contents of the original ending, it shows Linda Darnell as Amber, after Cornel Wilde leaves with their son...the infamous shortened ending depicts Amber at the window watching her family depart from her domain, while the complete ending has her return to her vanity mirror to primp and brush her hair, as if she is over the sad departure, and continues to be the vain, cold-hearted and beautiful vixen she has always been.

Postscript: If the Twilight Time Blu-ray release does NOT contain the original and complete ending, I DEFINITELY will NOT purchase it(!) Thank you!
