These are two legendary 1940s pictures belonging to the film noir. Each of the titles consist only of the name of their respective femmes fatale (played by Rita Hayworth and Gene Tierney), the mysterious women whose alluring, seductive and duplicitous characteristics will ultimately be the downfall of any men who is unfortunate enough to encounter them.

Which of these films had you more enchanted?

'Good one. I noticed a little typo:

I'm assuming you meant man? I always find typos in my work because my laptop is always correcting me - incorrectly, lol.

I have and, yes, they are both great films. Instead of having to make a tough choice, I think I'll cop out and just vote for the one with fewer votes, lol.

Laura - 100%

I consider Gene Tierney in the top five most beautiful actress of all time. And she kills it in this movie. Plus, Dana Andrews!

Jen,

She was gorgeous (such an elegant beauty, a certain je ne sais quoi you rarely see in hollywood actresses anymore...) It is such a great movie.
