Gene Tierney reading a script (1941).
Sundown. United Artists, 1941. With Gene Tierney, Bruce Cabot, George Sanders.
Tierney was featured on all the posters, but you’ll have to wait a good long time to see her. Like many of her films, the emphasis here is on her otherworldly beauty at the expense of her performance. She’s a beautiful blank, her exotic looks enhanced by the makeup crew to make her more believable as a half-French, half-Arab temptress.
