Oscar Winner: Ingrid Bergman, Gaslight
Mazur Winner: Barbara Stanwyck, without hesitation, in a shocking change-of-pace role that defines the Noir femme fatale. Phyliis Dietrichson is synonymous with rotten feminine guile and Stanwyck plays her with repitilian relish, all cool, calculating and out for herself—as most femmes fatale tend to be. A towering achievement in the versatile actresses’ career.
