this might be my first noir, featuring a woman as the protagonist and main 'detective'. carol, played beautifully by ella raines, is a strong and determined female lead.
this strength could have been easily undercut if the film went for a more sexual presentation. luckily this doesn't happen and what we are left with is a strong female character who has complete control. she uses her wits to get by rather than just blatant sensuality. this doesn't mean that sexuality isn't used, it's just not misused.
carol is well aware of her own sensuality and isn't afraid to use it but she stays in control. the direction, compositions and lighting show her as she wants to be seen at any given moment, not how audience might want to see her. this i find is the key distinction.
take the scene in the jazz room, the most sensual scene of the film, as an example. here she concisely changes her character. she wants to be seen differently so the presentation changes to accommodate this change. control and respect are key here.
the nuances in ella raines's performance strengthens her character cementing her as a believable and memorable lead. making this an openly feminist flick in a genre filled with leading men and 'femme fatales'
