Forever Amber is a 1947 film directed by Otto Preminger and starring Linda Darnell and Cornel Wilde. " It was based on the book of the same name. It also starred Richard Greene, George Sanders, Glenn Langan, Richard Haydn, Dolores Hart, and Jessica Tandy. It was adapted by Jerome Cady, Philip Dunne and Ring Lardner Jr., and directed by Otto Preminger, who replaced original director John M. Stahl after 39 days of filming and $1 million of production. The Hays Office condemned the work, but within a month of its publication the movie rights had been purchased by Twentieth Century Fox.

In 1947, Darnell won the starring role in the highly anticipated film adaptation when the original star, newcomer Peggy Cummins, proved too inexperienced for the role. The character Amber in the novel was so called because of her hair color, and this is the only major film in which Darnell — normally known for her raven hair and somewhat Latin looks — appears as a redhead. Publicity at the time compared the novel Forever Amber to Gone with the Wind. The search for the actress to portray Amber, a beauty who uses men to make her fortune in 17th-century Englandmarker, was modeled on the extensive process that led to the casting of Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara.

The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Original Music Score.
