Gene Tierney - 'Dragonwyck' (1946)

On a trip to the West Coast, she once visited Warner Bros. studios. The director Anatole Litvak, who was so taken by the seventeen-year-old’s beauty, told her that she should become an actress. Warner Bros. wanted to sign her to a contract, but her parents advised against it because of the low salary. Her father felt “If Gene is to be an actress, it should be in the legitimate theatre.” Tierney then started to studie acting at a small Greenwich Village acting studio in New York.
