Gene Tierney, Turner Classic Movies salutes continues his one-day agents said.

Hailed as one of the great beauties of his time, Gene Tierney is best remembered for his performance in the role of Laura (1944) and his Oscar-nominated performance for Best Actress in Leave Her to Heaven (1945). Other notable features include demonstrable Martha Van Cleve in Heaven Can Wait (1943), Isabel Bradley Maturin Razor’s Edge (1946), Lucy Muir in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947), Ann Sutton in Whirlpool (1949 ), Maggie Carleton McNulty in with Mating (1951) and Anne Scott in The Left Hand of God (1955). Some of his film materials related to personnel and documents are contained in the files of the Wesleyan University Cinema, to which scholars and media experts from around the world can get full access.

Gene Tierney died in 1991, shortly before his 71st birthday, of emphysema in Houston, Texas. She had started smoking after a screening of his first film to lower his voice because it “sounds like an angry Minnie Mouse.” She became a heavy smoker, which contributed to his death. She was buried next to Lee in the Glenwood Cemetery in Houston, Texas.

In 1986, Tierney was honored with the actor Gregory Peck with the first Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award at the Festival de San Sebastian Spain for his body of work.

For his contribution to the film industry, Tierney has a star on the Walk of Fame at 6125 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
