Product Description


The hardworking Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball star in the urbane and witty Forever Darling, a 1956 romantic comedy, made at the height of the couple's popularity as co-stars of I Love Lucy, about the difficulty of forging marital harmony. Arnaz plays unpretentious, visionary chemist Lorenzo "Larry" Vega, whose passion for working on a powerful chemical insecticide for the benefit of humankind means little to his wife, Susan (Ball). A creature of high society, Susan is conflicted about her destiny. Should she be concerned with acquiring a bigger house and socializing with the right people, or should she follow Larry as he takes his insecticide on a two-year field study in tropical jungles? Attempting to guide her toward the right decision is a dapper, guardian angel, who happens to take the form of James Mason because Mason is Susan's fantasy man. The script by Helen Deutsch (I'll Cry Tomorrow) indulges I Love Lucy fans with plenty of slapstick set pieces plugged into an extended camping scene. But there's also some flashy banter--Arnaz is very convincing putting well-heeled snobs in their place--and a very clever sequence in which Susan imagines herself as the heroine in a movie she happens to be watching. (A movie starring, yes, James Mason.) There's a fun, special feature in which Arnaz and Ball take time out from production on their television show to plug Forever Darling and reveal the secret of a truly happy marriage--and then get into a beef. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars A hilarious Lucy-Desi classic! May 16 2000
By Chandani - Published on Amazon.com
This movie is the better of the two Lucy and Desi made together. (The other was The Long, Long Trailer. I loved that one too, but I loved this one more!)This movie had me laughing so hard my stomach hurt! Lucy and Desi are an unbeatable team. Lucille Ball was born to be in Technicolor. She looks absolutely gorgeous in it, with her fiery red hair, intense blue eyes, and four corner, blood-red lips. Desi looks darkly handsome with his jet-black hair, great brown eyes,and deeply tanned skin. The two can really act. Think of this movie as an I Love Lucy in color, but with beautiful scenery and James Mason, Susan's(Lucy's) guardian angel. I cannot believe that back in 1956 when Lucy and Desi made this film that it was panned. It kept me laughing till the end! The story is simple: Susan and Larry Vega think their marraige is on the rocks, so Susan's guardian angel, James Mason, advises her to go on a business trip with him, and everything works out well between the two, with minor(but hilarious!)setbacks along the way. Forever Darling is a must-see for any Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great slapstick comedy! Nov. 26 2002
By Deanna - Published on Amazon.com
Susan (Lucille Ball) and Lorenzo "Larry" Vega (Desi Arnaz) have been married for over five years and they are starting to drift apart. One night, Susan's guardian angel appears, who happens to look just like movie star James Mason and only she can see him. He tells Susan that there's a bumpy road ahead for her and Larry if they don't work their problems out. Meanwhile, Larry, who is a scientist, is developing an insecticide at Finlay Vega Chemical Company and plans to test it on an upcoming camping trip. Susan thinks that this is good chance to spend some time together, so she goes along on the trip with him. Once they get there, it doesn't take long for the expedition to turn into one mishap after the other!
Like I've said before, Lucy and Desi were a wonderful duo on screen together. Forever Darling is no exception. It's a hilarious comedy for the whole family. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny, touching movie with lots of fun and some laughs. July 21 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz star in this great, all Lucy movie. Lucy and Desi play a married couple who think their marriage is in a rut. But Lucy's gaurdian angel (James Mason) shows up and after lots of trying, their marriage is saved. The movie is a little long, and gets a little bit boring towards the end, but I would say this is a must see, must have. I't a true Lucille Ball classic, something to treasure and enjoy watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever Darling-forever wonderful!! July 16 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
In the year 1954, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz made a wonderful movie: The Long, Long Trailer. And they decided to do it again in 1956 when they made this other wonderful show: Forever Darling. Most people say they like this one better but I recommend both greatly.
Susan (Lucille Ball) and Larry (Desi Arnaz) Vega get married. Seven years later, they start to go their own way. They go a while this way-wanting their own way, having things done without the other....But Susan starts to relize what is happening with the help of her gardian angel (James Mason) she is able to change all of this. At first she thinks that she is just seeing things, but the doctor asures her everything is okay. But she does really see one.He tells her that if she does not change the way that she and her husband are going, they will start to have some problems. So Susan starts to do something about it.
My favorite part is when Susan and Larry are about to go to bed and they fight; I think Lucille Ball is the funniest in that scene.I truely do recommend this movie to everyone. I know you will like it. You cannot watch tis movie once. It is just simply to great to miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF A WONDERFUL PAIR OF MOVIES June 27 2005
By Nancy Sherburne - Published on Amazon.com
I have seen both Forever, Darling and The Long, Long Trailer (in that order) and would be hard-pressed to say which one I liked most. I love the title song sung by the Ames Brothers, but to hear Desi sing it in Spanish was a delight. Other reviewers have mentioned James Mason (I loved him as Dr. Watson in Murder By Decree) but don't forget the actress who played Thurston Powell III's wife on Gilligan's Island, Natalie Schafer, playing Susan's high-society mother!! All the comedy scenes will leave you breathless (I loved it her slave-and-master routine when she and her husband's first jaunt in the rowboat ended (with her rowing) but don't lose sight of the reason for the trip. It was because their marriage was on the rocks that Susan went with her husband in hopes of fixing things between them, and it was in the end, when she told her husband it was time she started going in his direction rather than her own, that my tears came. It would have been glorious if more movies by this superb team had followed.
