Forever Darling is a heartwarming romantic comedy from 1956, starring the legendary husband and wife duo of Lucy and Desi - Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, alongside James Mason. The movie was directed by Alexander Hall and produced by Desilu Productions. The story revolves around Susan and Lorenzo Vega, a happily married couple living in a beautiful cottage overlooking the ocean. Susan is a dreamy, romantic woman who believes in fairy tales and magic, while Lorenzo is a logical, practical man who believes in the reality of life. However, their differences don't put a strain on their marriage as they are deeply in love with each other.

One day, Susan comes across an old, abandoned house on the cliffs and becomes obsessed with it, believing that it's an enchanted castle that holds the key to eternal love. Despite Lorenzo's disbelief, Susan insists on restoring the house to its former glory and making it their home.

As Susan becomes more and more obsessed with the castle, she starts to believe that she's found a magical charm that can grant her every wish. She spends countless hours trying to communicate with the supposed enchanted beings and starts to neglect her husband and their marriage.

Lorenzo, on the other hand, is struggling with work-related stress and pressure from his colleagues, which puts further strain on their relationship. As the couple begins to drift apart, they begin to have doubts about their love for each other.

Things come to a head when Susan discovers that her fairy tale castle isn't what she thought it was, and she is forced to confront the reality of her life and marriage. With the help of Lorenzo and their friends, they start to work on their relationship and rediscover their love for each other.

Lucille Ball's performance as Susan is as delightful as ever, and her chemistry with Desi is infectious. James Mason's portrayal of Lorenzo is stoic and steadfast, making for a perfect complement to Lucy's whimsical character. Their interactions are funny, charming and at times even heart-wrenching.

The film's picturesque setting in Carmel, California, and its beautifully shot scenes of the ocean and the beach make for a visually pleasing experience. The movie's soundtrack, which features songs like "Forever, Darling" and "Angel Baby," adds to the romantic theme of the movie.

Overall, Forever Darling is a lovely, feel-good movie that captures the essence of a happy marriage, the power of love, and the importance of communication. It's a reminder that even the most enchanted of castles can't compete with the magic of true love. Anyone who has ever been in love, or believes in fairy tales, will find something to cherish in this timeless classic.

Forever Darling is a 1956 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0.
