Filmed in Technocolor - Leave Her to Heaven

Joined the Indy Film Buffs gang last night at IMA for Leave Her to Heaven. This film is part of the 2012 Winter Nights Film Series.
Gene Tierney was just unbelievably beautiful. The picture above does not do her justice. The technicolor process gave her such lustrous, other worldly red hair and lips. Several scenes where clearly shot on location, and again, the technicolor process produced the most lovely sky and cloud back grounds. The scenes in New Mexico of the her on horse back riding along the curving trail had a bit of a cartoon look to them. Her character was as evil as she was beautiful. After watching this film, I think a better title might have been - Leave Her to the Dogs.
