18. Shosanna Dreyfus
Inglorious Basterds – 1 Nazi officer & theatre full of people
If there’s one thing that Tarantino writes well, it’s strong women. While she starts off as the victim when a group of Nazi’s murder her family, she’s able to escape and start a new life operating a theatre in Paris.
When her venue is chosen to premiere a Nazi propaganda film, she locks all the high-ranking officials in, and with the help of the Basterds, lights the theatre on fire, killing everyone inside, including Adolf Hitler.
She technically should rank higher on the list, but since she shares the credit with the Basterds, and didn’t directly kill anyone but the 1 Nazi officer, she’s low on the list.
