The two greatest are Stanwyck (Double Indemnity) and Fiorentino (Last Seduction) because they know they are femme fatales and actually use humor to comment on it themselves. Two of the great scenes are below and I'd argue Evelyn Mulwray isn't really a femme fatale actually but rather Jake brings that all on himself but.........Gloria Swanson in Sunset Blvd is a femme fatale - not yet mentioned.
