Gene Tierney

GENE TIERNEY (1920-1991), born Gene Eliza Tierney, was adaptable in any role.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947)

Haven't you seen The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947)? Great as the female romantic lead with a ghost

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Laura (1944) Haunting as a picture, more striking as the real thing.
The Razor's Edge (1946) A fine supporting role in this almost metaphysical film by Somerset Maughan.
The Left Hand of God (1955) Teamed up with Bogie, how can you go wrong?
Heaven Can Wait (1943) Ernst Lubitsch at his finest.

  • Gene Tierney remains one of my favorite actresses. I love to watch her in "Laura" and "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" - two of my all-time favorite movies. But unfortunately, she had a very difficult life.
