On today, the last day of Noirvember 2016, I am pleased to shine a shadowy spotlight (is that even possible?) on my Top 10 Favorite Femmes. In the coming weeks and months, I’ll talk more about each of them, and why I love them so.

Sherry Peatty (Marie Windsor):  The Killing (1956)

Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck): Double Indemnity (1944)

Annie Laurie Starr (Peggy Cummins): Gun Crazy (1949)

Keechie (Cathy O’Donnell): They Live By Night (1948)

Anna Dundee (Yvonne DeCarlo): Criss Cross (1949)

Lilly Stevens (Ida Lupino):  Road House (1948)

Irene Neves (Gloria Grahame): Sudden Fear (1952)

Kathie Moffat (Jane Greer): Out of the Past (1947)

  1. Jean Gilles in Decoy! EVIL

  2. Ann Savage’s savage performance in “Detour” is one of my favorites. Then there’s Claire Trevor in “Born to Kill” and “Murder My Sweet”.

  3. Phyllis and Kathie are my favorites! So evil!

  4. An amoral and manipulative Lizabeth Scott in Too Late For Tears.
