Femme Fatale Fridays: Veruca Salt

Friday, October 15, 2010

"A femme fatale, translating to "Deadly Woman" in french, is an alluring, seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire.  Often this leads them into compromising, dangerous   and deadly situations." ~ Wikipeda

Veruca Salt is a spoiled child, who is the apple of her father's eye.  When the hunt for Willy Wonka's Golden Tickets  become a world wide hunt it is only natural that Mr. Salt's company goes from shelling peanuts to chocolate.  Ultimately, a ticket is unwrapped.  Things start off rotten once entering the factory, immediately questioning Mr. Wonka's inventions "Snozzberries? Who ever heard of a snozzberry? "  Things go from bad to worse when she looks at the tour as a souvenir shop wanting an Oompa Loompa, and a trained squirrel.  This only leads to her becoming a bad nut and falling down the garbage chute.  Upon leaving Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, Veruca and her father are covered in garbage.

  1. I love her name though I can't stand that child. Not in the book nor in any movie..

  2. She is a nasty piece of work. Even though I detest the child her name does roll nicely off your tongue.

  3. Good choice. I HATE Veruca Salt; she is a horrid child. She totally had it coming when those squirrels push her down the garbage chute. Good choice for femme fatale Friday :)

  4. Isn't there an all-female rock group named after her? Are they the ones that did "Seether"?
