On November 6 - 1990, one of Hollywood's legendary actresses Gene Tierney died at age 70.

Her classic films include Laura, Leave Her To Heaven, The Razor's Edge and Heaven Can Wait.

I love seeing her play opposite Tyrone Power in The Razor's Edge, Son of Fury and That Wonderful Urge. Their chemistry is magic.

Johnny, one of my favorite old films with Gene Tierney is "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir." She and Rex Harrison really worked well onscreen together, I think.

Thanks Musiclover for mentioning The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Gene Tierney's lovely performance in that film is beautifully contrasted with her mesmerizing intense performance in Leave Her To Heaven.

Like Doris, I think Gene Tierney was underappreciated as an actress.
