#FemmeFataleFriday salutes the meanest and most hardened femme fatale in all film noir, Ann Savage as Vera in Edgar G. Ulmer’s low budget classic, DETOUR (1945). In Ulmer’s expressionistic masterpiece, musician Al Roberts (Tom Neal) assumes a dead man’s identity only to face blackmail by the unscrupulous hitch-hiker Vera. Eschewing Hollywood’s usual glamorization of impoverished characters,
Savage actually looks as down-at-the-heels as Vera would in real life. Savage’s Vera also openly displays the ferocious survival instinct that the Hollywood femme fatale typically conceals under a seductive veneer. She blatantly enjoys her power over the hapless Al and readily spews out her contempt for him. She is as ruthless with him as life has been with her.
#FemmeFataleFriday Travel Tip: Never pick up hitch-hikers. N-E-V-E-R.
