Barbara Stanwyck ... Double Indemnity
Tallulah Bankhead … Lifeboat

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.
