They dont make 'em like they used too!

I've tried to pick the most well known from the black and white era...

My choice - Gene Tierney





elab49 -> RE: Favourite film noir Femme fatales (29/8/2012 12:27:19 PM)

Which film noirs would you be including Bette Davis for? 




donethinking -> RE: Favourite film noir Femme fatales (29/8/2012 12:39:29 PM)

My mistake she shouldnt really be in the list, feel free to nominate someone else.




elab49 -> RE: Favourite film noir Femme fatales (29/8/2012 1:47:08 PM)

Peggy Cummins maybe? Or the even more insane Ann Savage?




donethinking -> RE: Favourite film noir Femme fatales (31/8/2012 1:57:18 PM)

I have to confess I've not heard of either [:)]
Gene Tierney tho......yowser!

Gene Tieney was a stunningly beautiful woman and a fine actress, but I'd hardly call her a femme fatale. In those noirs that I've seen her in, she always played the good woman who was wronged, rather than the bad girl.
My vote goes to Barbara Stanwyck, if for no other reason than her stunning performance in my all time favourite noir, Double Indemnity. Honourable mention to Ava Gardner who played a scheming, manipulative, treacherous bitch so well in The Killers.

Gene Tierney was very much a femme fatale, just watch 'Leave her to Heaven'.




siegfried -> RE: Favourite film noir Femme fatales (3/9/2012 11:12:47 PM)

Fair point. To my shame I'd forgotten about that one. However, I still think that she was at her most effective playing more sympathetic roles, such as in Dragonwyck, Whirlpool and of course the marvellous Laura.

without any questions is Barbara Stanwyck
