Hello! To make my introduction easier, I'll just post a small survey-

Name- Emily Williams
Location- USA/Connecticut
Favourite Actors- Leslie Howard, Fred Astaire, Richard Widmark, Gordon MacRae
Favourite Actresses- Shirley Jones, Gene Tierney, Bette Davis, Norma Shearer
Favourite Films- The Petrified Forest, Carousel, The Gay Divorcee, Romeo and Juliet
Favourite Books- A Tale of Two Cities, Romeo and Juliet- I love Shakespeare!
Other pieces of info- Gene Tierney is my second favourite actress because I just adore her, she was lovely and her voice was gorgeous! I have actually, only seen three of her films but, I keep pluggin' along and try to get more and see more. My favourite of her films I have seen is probably Laura for her character, everyone wants to be Laura! My second favourite is difficult to choose between Heaven Can Wait and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, though I think that second pick would go to TGAMM just because I love the whole story and it is so beautiful. I don't think that there will ever be another Gene Tierney, she was too perfect on-screen, and lived in a world of only the worst things off-screen. She was amazing. I also want to let you all to know that I'm the biggest fan of Leslie Howard that I know! ;)

Enjoy the show,
Emily

Welcome to the Gene Tierney LJ Community! I once had this community running but, nobody seemed to want to join so I re-created it today and I am now, hopefully going to get more members this time.

In this community, feel free to post anything Gene Tierney which include icons, headers, photos, reviews on her films- anything you would like to share here! Please try and keep all posts in the subject of Gene or her films. Don't go making posts about The Phantom of the Opera for example, that's not what this community is for. If you wish to promote a community you own or belong to, please keep it Gene or classic film related, otherwise I might delete it!

Don't forget to read the rules if you haven't in the info page, and enjoy yourself here at genetierneyfans!
