Joan Crawford as Queen Bee is pretty evil.

Bette Davis is rather nasty in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

The Borg Queen, as portrayed by Alice Krige, or Susanna Thompson. Why stop at the 60's?

+1. Mrs. Iselin was one of the all time great villains, and one of the most underrated performances in film.

Also the Barbara Stanwyck character Phyllis in Double Indemnity.

I always liked Fu Manchu's ruthless daughter Lin; played by Tsai Chin.

Annie Laurie Starr in Gun Crazy aka Deadly is the Female.
James Cagney's mom in White Heat. She's never in the film but the finish is classic. A must-see film.
Throne of Blood, Lady Asaji Washizu (Lady McBeth). She hardly moves but makes your blood run cold.

Yeah loved the Gun Crazy Film. She really jacked that nice guy all over the place. I'm a big fan of Film Noir. I like to be reminded that women had their ways even before feminism.

Thought of another film, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! with Tura Santana as the main villain.

This film is a classic must see film. It follows three go-go dancers who embark on a spree of kidnapping and murder in the California desert. The dialogue is something else again.

Either Mary Ann or Mrs Howell.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Absolutely. Prior to Angela, there were very few female evil villains, outside of Disney animated films, The Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz, and Lady MacBeth roles (or variations of Lady MacBeth). Sure there were roles where the female was bad or mean, but very few as true evil villains.

All three at the same time. Big Grin Sure, it would kill me but it would take 6 morticians working 7 days to get the smile off of my face. Wink

In the James Bond film where Jaws gets dies in space, was his girlfriend a villian?
