By 1939 she had returned to Hollywood and immediately began to secure good roles, appearing in such films as Blood and Sand, Hangover Square and My Darling Clementine. In 1947 she won the starring role in the highly anticipated Forever Amber. Publicity at the time suggested this would be the next Gone With The Wind, and the search for Amber was deliberately modelled on the extensive process that led to the casting of Scarlett O'Hara, but the film did not live up to its hype. 1939 was a common year starting on Sunday (link will take you to calendar). ...

Darnell played two roles that earned her respect as an actress: as Daphne De Carter in the Preston Sturges comedy Unfaithfully Yours, opposite Rex Harrison, and as one of the three wives in A Letter to Three Wives. Darnell's hard-edged performance in the latter won her the best reviews of her career. She was widely tipped to win an Academy Award nomination for this part, but, when this did not happen, her career began to diminish and her film appearances were sporadic thereafter.

Darnell had three failed marriages, to cameraman J. Peverell Marley (1943-1952), brewery heir Philip Leibmann (1954-55), and pilot Merle Roy Robertson (1957-1963). Apparently unable to conceive, Darnell and Leibmann adopted a daughter, Charlotte "Lola" Marley, who now owns The Smoking Lamp tobacco shop in Charleston, South Carolina. To the detriment of her family life and career, for many years Darnell drank alcohol and ate to excess.


She died from burns received in a house fire in Glenview, Illinois, while living with friends. Her film, Star Dust, was playing on television the night of the fire and Darnell fell asleep with a lit cigarette while watching it. She reportedly awoke and tried to save her friend's child in the house -- the young girl had already escaped -- and instead was burned over 80 percent of her body. She died the next day. Her ashes are interred at the Union Hill Cemetery, Chester County, Pennsylvania, in the family plot of her daughter's husband.
