A great beauty and underrated actress. She's starred in some of my favourite films... Laura, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and Leave Her to Heaven.

I wish I could see her in some of her earlier films but sadly many of them are out of print.



She made quite a duo with Vincent Price.

Oh really? That's so cool. There isn't that much information on Gene so thanks for offering. Is it true that her mother was French? I read that somewhere on IMDB but I wasn't sure if that was true. She had an interesting look - not quite 'exotic' but not what you'd call the standard beauty either.

They certainly were on the right track!! Belle was part french... not full blooded french though! :-) I know what you mean though... there is barely any information on the internet about her! It is funny though because most of the movies she was cast in... she was cast as an asian!!! Standard Hollywood for you! haha. I am guessing thats where the exotic thing came from? hahaha who knows. She certainly was a beauty though!! Not to mention very intelligent! Eek I could go on and on! haha.

Wow. How fabulous for you - she has (in my opinion) one of the most beautiful faces I've ever seen.

I've only seen a few of her films but I would love to see more. She is one of the most beautiful women I've seen and I think her acting is underrated. Unfortunately it is hard to get a hold of Gene Tierney's films in Australia. I've only seen Belle Starr, Heaven Can Wait, Laura, Leave Her to Heaven, The Razor's Edge, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, Night and the City, Plymouth Adventure and Black Widow. Now that I've typed out all those films I realise I've actually seen quite a few! My favourites are Laura and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. I really want to see some more of her earlier films.
