Out of the Past (1947) is the film I think of when I think of as the ultimate Femme Fatale of noir. Jane Greer's Kathie saw Double Indemnity and was like "ppffffft. AMATEUR!"
A lot of stuff gets bandied about with people talking about noir who have a glancing familiarity with the topic, and a lot get it sorta-wrong. But this is the one about the dame with the heart of obsidian and the poor dope who can't get past those eyes I think a lot of neo-noir wound up trying to emulate. I mean, fair enough - it's Jane Greer, whose eye-game is only trumped by Bacall, with Tierney nipping at her heels.*
Anyway, watch folks make some incredibly bad decisions that all seem very right at the time.

*we can talk Marie Windsor and Audrey Totter eye-game, but that's a different sport
