"This Woman is Dangerous"
From ELISABETH CAREN'S #DOUBLEIDENTITY fineart photography series. Starring starring @claregrant
and @tarynoneill The leading female character in the #filmnoir genre usually fell into two characters: the femme fatale, who uses her sexual attractiveness and ruthless cunning to manipulate men in order to gain power and independence, and the conventional devoted wife and loving mother typically portrayed as dull and who has no autonomy, a role that the femme fatale rejects. These were exacting roles in the medium and society with no allowance for any other sexual preference or desire, even though in reality there were a multitude of differing sexual relationships occurring.
