"Sometimes the Truth is Wicked"

I seem to be on a real Gene Tierney kick. She does a good job in Laura, but she really flexes her muscles in Leave Her to Heaven. In some ways, she takes over the Waldo Lydecker role from Laura. Although she's billed as the villain, as you'll see from the trailer, I've always seen her as the secret heroine of the film. The ostensive hero, played with noteworthy stiffness by Cornel Wilde, comes off as an insensitive sap.
