I've always been a fan of Gene Tierney's and believe her to be an under-rated actress. I'm celebrating her birthday month by re-watching some of her films.

That's a wonderful idea, Brittaney! I'd especially like to revisit some of her films that I haven't seen in a long time, such as THE IRON CURTAIN, THAT WONDERFUL URGE, and NEVER LET ME GO -- and I still need to see WAY OF A GAUCHO which has been highly recommended to me by multiple people.

Enjoy!!

Best wishes,
Laura
