Re: The Facts Before Our Eyes: Wittgenstein and the Film Noir Investigator
"Take My Life" (1947) is a Britnoir that should be in the mix for women doing the detecting, and there are others. It's a very good film to boot. I seem to recall an Edgar Wallace entry with Hazel Court taking the detecting lead. In neo-noirs, Jodie Foster comes to mind in one or two.
"A woman [Greta Gynt] races against time to clear Nicholas Talbot [Hugh Williams] of a murder he did not commit. While she works on getting proof, the prosecution is doing all it can to force a conviction."
Marius Goring and Francis L. Sullivan also appear in this strong cast. Ronald Neame directed.
