About Gene Tierney: A Shattered Portrait

(1999, A&E)

Gene Tierney went from small town girl to Hollywood superstar, transformed overnight as only the studio system of the 1940s could. She was considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, and courted by men like John F. Kennedy, Pakistani prince Aly Khan, and billionaire Howard Hughes. But the gorgeous face of iconic classic films like Laura and Leave Her To Heaven masked a troubled psyche that ruined her career and bedeviled her for life.

This retrospective includes interviews with family members and co-stars like Richard Widmark, as well as rare film clips, screen tests, and home movies.

Notable guest stars: Richard Widmark, Oleg Cassini, Jeanine Basinger, Pat Byrne, Christina Cassini, David Raksin, Kay Adell Stork.

Produced and directed by Steven Smith 

Narrated by Peter Graves
