Out of the Vaults: Gene Tierney

One look at this stunning portrait and it’s little wonder why Gene Tierney is often remembered as one of the most beautiful women in the history of the movies—she is simply overwhelming. That smoldering, otherworldly quality of hers is the very definition of classic and a reminder to all those pseudo-dime-a-dozen-celebrities out there today what REAL movie stars look like.

Thanks to my papa for providing me with this image—a publicity shot for her 1941 film Sundown.

Just had to give it some Pictorial love.
