I think that my favorite characters in film noir - the femme fatales - are underrepresented in your poll. My favorite of all-time is Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity, followed by Jane Greer in Our of the Past, Gene Tierney in Leave Her to Heaven, Jean Simmons in Angel Face, Lana Turner in The Postman Always Rings Twice, Marilyn Monroe in Niagara, Peggy Cummin in Gun Crazy, Lauren Bacall in The Big Sleep, Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight, and Lillian Gish in Night of the Hunter.

Wow, wow... Bergman in Gaslight? Lillian Gish in Night of the Hunter? Absolutely not femme fatales... even Bacall in The Big Sleep is debatable (haven't seen Niagara but I doubt Marilyn Monroe was the femme-fatale type either)
