Everyone Loves: Gene Tierney
Gene Eliza Tierney (November 19, 1920 – November 6, 1991) Voted one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood in the 1940’s, Gene was hot. With that overbite and bright green eyes she made her mark – most notably in the films, Heaven Can Wait – 1943, Laura – 1944 (from which David Lynch based his Twin Peaks series), Leave Her to Heaven – 1945 and The Razors Edge -1946. She would act into the 1970’s but the mid-40’s were her peak years. Sadly, Gene suffered from severe Bipolar disorder and was hospitalized and given shock treatment in the 50’s derailing her carrer for some time. If you’ve never seen a Gene Tierney film, start with Laura – it’s perfect.
