IS THE FACE
IN THE MISTY LIGHT
YOU HEAR DOWN THE HALL
ON A SUMMER NIGHT
THAT YOU CAN NEVER
AND YOU SEE
ON A TRAIN
THAT IS PASSING THROUGH
HOW FAMILIAR THEY SEEM
YOUR VERY FIRST KISS TO YOU
THAT WAS LAURA
SHE'S ONLY A DREAM....
AH, THE LOVELY, SAD, TORTURED, AND almost finally MAD Gene Tierney.....
Married to Oleg Cassini...
She was pressured by her studio into attending a "Hollywood Canteen", serving refreshments and entertaining, along with studio bosses and other mega-stars, the servicemen returning home during WW2...
The WAC she worked with was sick, but she attended anyway, sweating furiously and coughing all night long....
Gene was PREGNANT....
Her daughter was born mentally impaired, which threw Gene into a severe depression from which she NEVER fully recovered. She blamed herself for her daughter's impairment.
Her once loving and thriving marriage suffered DIVORCE....
Howard Hughes steps in and spends a fortune seeking treatment for Gene's child, continues to do so for the rest of his life.....
Years later, Gene runs into the WAC at another function. The woman tells Gene Tierney that she had the MEASLES, Rubella, that night at the Hollywood Canteen.....
