Gene Tierney A Forgotten Star

According to Martin Scorsese « Gene Tierney was the most underrated star in Hollywood ». Gene Tierney’s life story would perfectly lend itself to a screenplay for a successful Hollywood movie with herself starring in it.
Other stormy relationships marked her life, including one with J.F. Kennedy and Ali Khan. Less well known are her years of mental illness.
With the access to the family archives with family photographs, films and notebooks by Gene Tierney, the film follows the memoirs of Gene Tierney herself. Her grand children, film director Martin Scorsese and film critics Joseph McBride, Cari Beauchamp and Molly Haskell fill in data where needed.
