    How can they not show Laura? I’m disappointed to see it missing. What are your personal favorites from this list Michelle?

    I thought it would be there too, Paul. TCM have aired it many times so it’s not a copyright issue. Also, another one of my favorites, “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” is also missing. Of the list, the two films not to be missed are “Leave Her To Heaven” and “Dragonwyck,” two of my top five Gene Tierney films.

  3. PG

    Yes they showed “Leave Her To Heaven” recently. I also like “Dragonwyck” and like you would have loved to have seen “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” included. TCM don’t always include the best work but what’s available from their vaults. They need to try a little harder to secure the rights to some of the more important films.
    The same thing happened with the Jennifer Jones tribute. No “Song of Bernadette” or “Portrait of Jennie” but the inferior, if quirky “Beat the Devil” instead. It’s not good enough.

    I like this photo of Gene Tierney. She has beautiful eyes.

    Just watched the Thunder Birds clip. What a clear, sharp print. Who’s the male star in this clip Michelle?

  6. mvozus

    That’s Preston Foster, Paul. I have the DVD. It’s a beautiful print, as you can see in the clip.
