Wonderful Performance From Gene Tierney!

by Brad W on 1/27/2014

Gene Tierney knocks it out of the park as a desirable young woman whose fits of jealousy threaten to consume all those who are objects of her affection. The gorgeous cinematography in Leave Her to Heaven is the other main attraction of the film; it is one of the most beautiful to have been shot in Technicolor. Essential viewing for fans of classic film Read More

Plot Summary
Summary This genuinely perverse and fascinating film noir, filmed in incredibly rich Technicolor, is the tale of a woman's obsessive desire to possess her husband, exclusive of anyone else in the world.| Ellen Berent and her husband, writer Richard Harland, move to his lodge in Maine. In order to be completely alone with him, Ellen makes the handyman go away and stands by as Richard's attention-grabbing, crippled brother drowns in the lake. Pregnant Ellen also purposely miscarries their child. When Ellen's sister Ruth visits, Ellen's paranoia and jealousy catapult her to confess to Richard that she was responsible for the "accidents." Sickened by Ellen's confession, Richard decides to leave her for good. Ellen's next plan of action is quite possibly the ultimate revenge ever carried out by a jilted, crazed lover.
