Gene Tierney is one of the most beautiful actresses to have ever graced the silver screen. Her beauty was indescribable. She was a great actress. Her talent in a word was brilliant.
My favorite movie of her's is Leave Her To Heaven. In it, she is hauntingly beautiful and undeniably wicked. She plays the part of the murderous Ellen Berent Harland, a woman possessed with unreasoning jealousy. And, though Ellen is portrayed as being wicked to the core, Gene Tierney made it possible to sympathize with her character. She made you love her, made you hate her.
When watching the hauntingly beautiful Tierney you are left her prey. She can make you feel for her character whatever she wishes. This ability has always drawn me and many other to Gene Tierney and has made me love watching her films.
