Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA

When Paramount Pictures fumbled Gene Tierney's proposed film debut in its aborted adaptation of "National Velvet," 20th Century Fox saw promise in the gimlet-eyed beauty with the regal cheekbones and curiously beguiling overbite. Tierney emerged as a leading lady of equal beauty and depth. Gliding seamlessly from smoldering sensuality in Preminger's "Laura" (1944), to sang froid psychopathy in John M. Stahl's "Leave Her to Heaven" (1945), to a maturity and grace far beyond her years in Joseph L. Mankiewicz's "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" (1947), Tierney attained a strata of celebrity that put her on par with fellow sirens Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner and Ava Gardner.

QUOTES FROM Gene Tierney CHARACTERS

Ann Treadwell says: Shelby's better for me.

Laura Hunt says: Why?

Ann Treadwell says: [while applying lipstick] Cuz I can afford him, and understand him. He's no good but he's what I want. I'm not a nice person Laura, and neither is he. He knows I know he's - just what he is. He also knows that I don't care. We belong together because we're both weak and can't seem to help it. That's why I know he's capable of murder; he's like me.

Shelby Carpenter says: I knew there was something on my mind. What is it? Oh yes, will you dine with me tomorrow night?

Laura Hunt says: Maybe.

Shelby Carpenter says: No, that isn't what's worrying me. It's the next night.

Laura Hunt says: But Shelby, I can't....

Shelby Carpenter says: Good. And what about three weeks from tonight? And all the nights in between?

Laura Hunt says: Don't you think I have any other engagements?

Shelby Carpenter says: What about two months from now and the month after that?

Laura Hunt says: What about next year?

Shelby Carpenter says: That's all settled. What about breakfast?

Waldo Lydecker says: You seem to be completely disregarding something more important than your career: my lunch.

Laura Hunt says: Do you really believe that?

Waldo Lydecker says: Implicitly.

Laura Hunt says: I never heard of anything so selfish.

Waldo Lydecker says: In my case, self absorption is completely justified. I have never discovered any other subject quite so worthy of my attention.

Laura Hunt says: But, you write about people with such - real understanding and sentiment. That's what makes your columns so good.

Waldo Lydecker says: The sentiment comes easy at fifty cents a word.

Laura Hunt says: If that's the way you really feel - you must be very lonely.

Waldo Lydecker says: Will you kindly continue this character analysis elsewhere? You begin to bore me.

Lucy Muir says: "I want Gull Cottage."
