To me, it's not so much about the evil-but-beautiful women who lead men to doom, but people overall. A good writer can make a reader relate to the protagonist regardless of gender, and Goodis definitely does that for me (ok, there, I brought myself back to the Goodis topic of the thread LOL).

I agree totally, Amy. When you get down to twisted psychology, which is the most interesting part of noir in my opinion, it can apply equally to men or women. When I read a novel with a male protagonist, I automatically put myself into his place, if I'm caught up at all. Do you do that? I wonder if male readers put themselves into the place of female protagonists? Anybody? I would think so. Vicki
