Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 Forever Darling-forever wonderful!! July 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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 A hilarious Lucy-Desi classic! May 16 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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
Format:VHS Tape
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 little film Oct. 21 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Made before THE LONG LONG TRAILER, but not as well-known or well-received, was this marital comedy that had the couple portraying Larry and Susan Vega, a pair whose marriage is beginning to dull.
Enter Susan's guardian angel (James Mason), who tells her to try and recapture the special magic of their first wonderful years of marriage.
Just when it seems sure that the couple will part ways, a few things happen that set them back onto the road to wedded bliss.
Also featuring Nancy Kulp and Natalie Schaefer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lucy and Desi Deserve Better than this Script! May 21 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were brilliant together, but they deserved better than this film. As Lucy says herself in her autobiography: "Forever Darling" has an underdeveloped plot and poor shooting. Nothing really happens; the characters just breeze along from one irrelevant scene to the next. However, the movie does have some pretty funny lines . . . in a mindless sort of way. If you need a good Lucy and Desi movie, let me suggest "The Long, Long Trailer."

3.0 out of 5 stars it's alright
This movie is alright, not one of their funniest. If you want this as part of a collection, then buy it. However, if you want this to see this for some laughter, it's just alright.
