    If you liked film noir, you loved Lizabeth Scott, who passed away Jan 31st at 92.



    Asked in a 1996 interview why film noir had become so popular, Scott said: “The films that I had seen growing up were always, ‘Boy meets girl, boy ends up marrying girl, and they go off into the sunset,’ ” she said. “And suddenly [in the 1940s], psychology was taking a grasp on society in America. That’s when they got into these psychological, emotional things that people feel. That was the feeling of film noir. … It was a new realm, something very exciting, because you were coming closer and closer to reality.”

    From IMDB:

    In Scott's third film, she is cast with Humphrey Bogart in Dead Reckoning (1947). It is Scott's first crack as the archetypal femme fatale. In Dead Reckoning she lures Bogart into a web of lies, and deceit. As is typical in the noir genre, her power is rooted in her beauty and sexual allure. In a departure from his tough guy roles, Bogart plays a wronged man (a noir hero), who struggles to learn the fate of a missing army buddy. Scott is the ex-girlfriend who knows more than she lets on. To keep Bogart from learning the truth about his lost friend and his mysterious double life, Scott seduces him into believing she loves him.
