    Bette Davis

    This no-nonsense all American actress was known to portray unsympathetic characters that drew no compassion or love from the audiences. With films like Of Human Bondage, Jezebel, All About Eve, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Davis proved time and again that a flawed human could generate more interest than the good girl.

    Barbara Stanwyck
    Barbara Stanwyck personified the ‘tough guy’ images attributed normally to her male counterparts. The New York Times wrote about her character as Martha Ivers — “Miss Stanwyck is twice the hard-boiled, lustful vixen she played in Double Indemnity.”

    Janet Leigh
    No one can forget Leigh’s scream in Psycho. In those days, the audience didn’t know how to react when the lead actress of the movie dies in the first half hour. But Leigh took the risk. She received a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and was nominated for an Oscar in the same category for the role. Her other notable films were Touch of Evil, The Fog and The Manchurian Candidate.

    Jean Harlow
    Often called the ‘Laughing vamp’; she drove men crazy with her magnetic sex appeal and platinum blonde hair. She literally was Hell’s Angel (also the movie by Howard Hughes that launched her career) until a renal failure cut her life short at the age of 26. But in a career spanning just a decade, she left a deep impact with films like Hold Your Man, Red Dust, Wife vs Secretary.
