power to the whole house, found Yvette, strangled her with a rope, killed the cop with a lead pipe, took the gun from where Yvette had dropped it, heard the doorbell, and killed the singing telegram girl. Due to being exposed completely by Wadsworth, she is proved conniving and dangerous. Since she was not afraid of committing the four murders, duping Yvette, and using that to her advantage to blackmail the remaining guests for government secrets, it was established that she was lethal, hazardous, or fatal . In the end, her character is exposed as such that it fits the archetype of “Femme Fatale” perfectly in all aspects. A femme fatale is an alluring, charming temptress who ensnares men and others and leads them into deadly situations, which is exactly what took place in the 1985 movie “Clue”. Mrs. Scarlet fits the definition of femme fatale because by definition, she follows every aspect of it. She was a seductive woman who lured the guests to avoid suspicion and then brought terror down on them in the form of blackmail, making her the perfect “fatal woman”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
