GENE TIERNEY | THE LEFT HAND OF GOD (1955) Classic 1950s portrait


[Los Angeles: Twentieth Century Fox, 1955]. Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photo. Remnants of tape on back where original paper blurb was attached. Minor edge creases, about fine.

Photo of Gene Tierney for the Twentieth Century Fox film The Left Hand of God. Gene Tierney played a missionary in China, opposite Humphrey Bogart as lead.

Fifteen years of constant filmmaking, a failed marriage to Oleg Cassini, failed relationships and the birth of her intellectually handicapped daughter led her to deep depression. She had trouble throughout filming and was sent to a sanitarium afterward, not returning for seven years to make another movie.

Here she wears a classic necklace and earrings of pearls. Photo is coded G59/S/211.
