Forever Amber

Forever Amber

Available on Hulu
Orphaned during the English Civil War and raised by a family of farmers, Amber (Linda Darnell) refuses to live a rural life and when a group of cavaliers ride into town, she begs them to take her to London. Despite their refusal, Linda follows Bruce Carlton (Cornel Wilde) and Lord Harry Almsbury (Richard Greene) back to London, where she lures Bruce into a romantic relationship. Fed up with the politics of England, Bruce seeks an escape and convinces King Charles II (George Sanders) to give him two ships so that he can patrol the oceans and steal treasure from foreign vessels. When the king grants Bruce's wish, he leaves Amber in the middle of the night, not knowing that she is pregnant. Still in love with Bruce and carrying their child, Amber attempts to use her good looks to climb the social ranks of England and win back her beau upon his return. After an initial misstep, Amber finds herself on the bottom rung of the ladder, but receives more than a helping hand from a series of suitors as she climbs her way to the top.
