  3. Gene Tierney was one of the most beautiful mysterious and talented actresses of her time. No, of all time. She ended her life very sadly. Which goes to prove how right she was about fame wealth and beauty. LOVE your blog!!!!

  11. I have always found Gene Tierney fascinating. She was sad proof that beauty, fame and fortune don't necessarily promise happiness. Stunning photo.
