2.) When the door to the lounge finally opens after Colonel Mustard and Scarlet are locked in, Mrs. Peacock finds the motorist’s dead body and quickly accuses the two of them by asking which one of them killed the motorist, showing that she didn’t trust either Colonel Mustard or Mrs. Scarlet. Paragraph three: Wadsworth, who was ingeniously capable of putting together the night’s events and pinpointing the two killers, was very precise in describing how Mrs. Scarlet was the murderer. 1.) Wadsworth reveals that Mrs. Scarlet planned on blackmailing everyone left alive, except Wadsworth for their government secrets, and anyone who wasn’t related to anything to do with the government, she killed. 2.) When the guests split up to search the house, Mrs. Scarlet snuck up behind the motorist and bashed his head with the wrench. She then took the lead pipe and rope, strangled Yvette, killed the cop, and took the gun from where Yvette had dropped it. She then opened the door and upon recognizing her, killed the singing telegram girl.

Paragraph four: The “femme fatale”, meaning fatal or dangerous woman, is the perfect archetype to describe Mrs. Scarlet. She proves her femininity simply by being a prostitute, which is usually a female “job”. 1.) She proves to be incredibly conniving by avoiding suspicion by all guests besides Wadsworth. 2.) The only thing preventing most people from becoming murderers is fear of the consequences, and Mrs. Scarlet overcomes that fear, making her dangerous, and proving she’s not afraid to kill. In other words, she’s lethal, or fatal, making her perfect for the archetype “femme fatale” Paragraph five: Mrs. Scarlet, all in all, is a dangerous character in the movie, who avoids suspicion in her own unique way, and has original character qualities. Femme Fatale fits Mrs. Scarlet perfectly because she is not only the murderer, but she schemes how to do it, and deceives Yvette in the process.

    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.
