Thunder Birds (1942)

Gene Tierney is in Thunder Birds, what more do you want? Gene plays ranch girl Kay Saunders, whose old flame Steve Britt played by Preston Foster is back in town to coach newly recruited pilots, however things get awkward when 'charming' British doctor Peter Stackhouse joins the ranks, (he is scared of heights but wants to honour the family tradition) and Kay falls for Peter, even though he is a wet blanket compared to Steve, geez. Plus Steve has a moustache so he wins for me hands down, any who it is an enjoyable film, just for the clothes really.  











Matching dress and bag squeal!


This is what I would do if I was in the vicinity of Miss Tierney. 




I wanna dress like a cowgirl

  3. If it has Gene Tierney in it, that's all I need to know! I love her western wear, too. I live in the American West and nobody dresses that well, let me tell you.

  8. My fella and I are planning our wedding/honeymoon trip and I'm thinking, thanks to this post (and when I recently re-watched Marilyn looking sexy in River of No Return!) I may need to dress as some kind of cowgirl for a least a day when we are in the wild wild west of America! teehee! :) Thanks for sharing, I'll have to check Thunder Birds out! x
