Tonight's Saturday Night Cinema is the film noir classic (in exquisite Technicolor cinematography, no less), Leave Her to Heaven. And if you are an avid Gene Tierney fan like yours truly, this is Tierney at the height of her beauty and acting powers, as she plays one of cinema's most chilling psychopaths. Gene Tierney was nominated for an Oscar as the cold-blooded murderess. Crazy never looked so seductive or "bit with such a ferocious over-bite as from Gene Tierney's demented character."
Cornel Wilde as the object of her mad affection and the lovely Jeanne Crain as the long suffering sister are superb. One film critic described quipped, "everything is beautiful in Leave Her to Heaven. In fact, too beautiful."
