- 1h 28min
- Directed by: Otto Preminger
- Cast: Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb
A detective (Andrews) becomes fascinated with the eponymous femme (Tierney), who as the story begins is dead – or at least appears to be. Preminger's terrific film noir is a murder mystery in which it's neither clear who did it, nor who is the real victim. A masterpiece.
