Your favorite Femme Fatal

Recommended Posts

Barbara Stanwyck in *Double Indemnity* gets my vote.

 

I may have been slightly influenced by the fact that it's on TCM right now. ;)

 

She'd be followed very very closely by Jane Greer in *Out of the Past*.

Barbara O'Neill as the poisonous Mme. de Praslin in ALL THIS, AND HEAVEN TOO. God, I wanted to throttle that woman!. Her scenes reeked with malice and envy. Barbara did a wonderful job...and held her own with formidable Bette Davis.

So you are saying a movie doesn't have to be a film noir to have a femme fatale, if I understand correctly? Interesting idea. :)

Gilda is definately the best femme fatale. Rita Hayworth was positvely amazing: so sexy, so devilish, and positively delicious!

 

I almost put Scarlett O'Hara as my favorite... but I don't think she was as heartless, just desperate. Vivian, though, played her superbly- nobody could've done her better.

My favorite film about a femme fatale, is Brian De Palma's *Femme Fatale*. However, my actual favorite femme fatale would be Barbara Stanwyck in just about anything!

Barbara Stanwyke in Double Idemnity- If you can get someone to commit a murder for you- enough said.

Rita Hayworth in Gilda because of the reasons somebody else listed.

Ida Lupino in High Sierra and a half a dozen other movies because she is one of the greatest ever.

Forgot to ,mention Rita Hayworth as the homewrecking but gorgeous Dona Sol in BLOOD AND SAND. She really relished her enslavement of naive Juanillo the torrero (Ty Power). He never knew what hit him, until it was too late.

...and they don't have to be gorgeous, either. Witness Hope Emerson in CAGED. She managed to connive her way to where she wanted to be by pure evil. Good looks didn't matter a whit.

I didn't even realize that!

I should look for more examples.
