Can You Name The Femme Fatale From ONE Image?

How well do you really know your femme fatales?

Cruel Intentions Sarah Michelle Gellar

The femme fatale is one of the most iconic, long-lasting character archetypes in cinema history - the mesmerising beauty who, despite her disarming looks, isn't beyond sticking you with a blade or selling you out if the time calls for it.

Far from a typical damsel-in-distress, the femme fatale is a proactive schemer looking out for themselves above all others, while unafraid to get their hands dirty in order to get what they want. Between their sex appeal and empowering qualities, it's little surprise they've endured for the better part of a century.

The archetype was of course popularised by the classic film noirs of the 1940s and 1950s, and the tradition continues today with ruthless, scorching screen sirens you shouldn't ever underestimate.

But how well do you really know your femme fatales? Can you name these iconic leading ladies from classic thrillers throughout cinema history, from just a single image alone? You'll have four multiple-choice monikers to choose from, but the answers might not be as obvious as you first believe.

Yet fear not no matter how you do, because the answers are at the end as ever. Good luck!
