Higher

Sugar Kane
Profession  Nightclub chanteuse.
Played by  Marilyn Monroe
In  Some Like It Hot (1959)
Marilyn Monroe, possibly the most devastatingly sexy actress ever to grace the silver screen, was on top form here. Whether drunkenly slumping around or slinking about in full-on sex-kitten seduction mode, she is never less than astoundingly attractive, mixing little girl innocence and world-weary ennui into a cocktail of irresistibility. The prototype for Christina Hendricks' Joan Holloway, Jessica Rabbit and many more, Sugar gets her heart broken on a regular basis, but just can't help herself from falling in love again. Bless: she needs someone to take care of her, and there will be men queuing up for the privilege.
Moment of hotness  SO MANY. Wiggling down the train platform "like jello on springs". Snuggling up to the hapless "Geraldine" on the train. Bouncing around merrily on the beach. Still, if we had to choose we'd pick the rendition of I'm Through With Love in a dress so see-through it might as well be topless.
Ideal chat up line  "Have some bourbon while I play you a few bars of Come To Me My Melancholy Baby."
Any drawbacks?  She's an emotional wreck who flirts with alcoholism, and if you're not a saxophone player of dubious moral fibre, there's no point even trying.

4 Whaaaaaat!!!!!
Elizabeth Swan is one of the most underwhelming characters of that whole saga, not helped by a completely wooden peformance from Knightley herself. Give Gilda her rightful place in the top ten. Read More

5 ??
Dont agree with most of them, Santanica Pandemonium and Jessica Rabbit yep but the others definately not. What about Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge? Read More

6 You forgot to hook up the doll
Firstly bravo Dirtyfunkymonkey, it's not just geeky it's cliched and outside of being a bit of fun, a real insult to women, Jessica Rabbit no2? and Lara Croft no1 there are clearly much more stronger and more seductive female characters in the filmiverse. Surely if your going to compile a list of masturbatory icons, why not include the Alpha Omega of them all, the hypothetical woman made felsh; Lisa from 'Weird Science' as played by Kelly LeBrock.

7 GEEKY!!
Jesus, how geeky was all that! Was this list compiled by a bunch of spotty teens or some guys who spend far too long w*nking over so called Sci-Fi babes whilst wondering what it would feel like to shag an alien... Come on guys, seriously. Where are the women. Kathleen Turner in Body Heat or Linda Fiorentino in The Last Seduction for example. Bo Derek in 10 perhaps?? But no. We get fucking Star Wars characters and blue aliens... Read More

9 Well said Tommypocket!
I agree with you. What about Maria Elena in Vickie Christina Barcelona, or Malena? Glad to see the sophisticated and beautiful Vesper though, proving that a few men have taste. Read More

10 No Slim!!
