The Ultimate Neo Noir Femme Fatale- Bridget
From the Silent era's damsell in distress through to the Hitchcock blonde, Movie lovers have found appealing symbols of female pulcritude. Perhaps the genre where the sex symbol has been most prevelant in terms of real sexuality has been in film Noir; Barbra Stanwyck,Veronica Lake, Lizbeth Scott and perhaps the ultimate Noir Femme fatale Gloria Graham. So it's fitting that this film archetype was rejuvenated in what has come to be known as Neo-Noir. These women once again used their sexuality to manipulate and to avoid being victimised. Most of all in reinventing all the appealing aspects of the Noir woman the movies have ensured that new sex symbols have followed the likes of Hayworth Monroe and Welch.
