Beautiful Self-Portrait

by Bazzeroo on Aug 6, 2009

It's not quite a masterpiece but Self-Portrait qualifies as among the best autobiographies of a screen star that I've ever read. She was frank and honest about her mental health problems. More comment on the making of her movies and her opinions of other actors would have earned it another star.

Remarkable Lady

by KayMiniver on Jul 12, 2007

I got this book because I am very interested in manic depression (or bipolar disorder) and I knew Gene Tierney had gone through the disease. My purchasing this book also had to do with my admiring Miss Tierney as an actress, for giving astounding performances in films like "Leave Her to Heaven". What I found was not only a fascinating read written by an honest and courageous lady, but also a very well written account of a victim of MD. I learned many things from this book and I must say, Miss Tierney was extremely honest, chose her words well, and most of all, wrote about famous celebrities like her former husband Oleg Cassini as well as former boyfriend John Kennedy without showing any negative feelings towards them. She writes with such class and frankness, making this a must for every fan of her work.
