6 uncompromising women

In the interest of brevity, instead of yet another rambling posts, I've decided to adventure into the top something territory. I don't rank, because I don't like to discriminate between great and greater. Why 6? That's how many seemed worthy. Next time I might add explanations, but I'm tired. Feel free to add them yourself in the comment, or to offer your own suggestions. Enjoy!

  • Catherine (Jules et Jim)
  • Margot Channing (btw, I recommend Kim Morgan's wonderful tribute to Bette Davis)
  • Mrs. Robinson (which should have been the title of that movie, 'cause she was way more fascinating than the character it was named after)
  • Marge Gunderson (honorable mention: McDormand's dean Sara Gaskell from Wonder Boys)
  • Vivian Sternwood Rutledge (yeah, I didn't remember the name either, had to imdb it. But I mean Lauren Bacall in the Big Sleep. Though every part she played opposite Bogie can be substituted here.)
  • Katherine Hepburn in pretty much everything, but especially in The African Queen: "I never dreamed that any mere physical experience could be so stimulating!"
