All About Thelma And Eve: Sidekicks And Third Wheels

Inviting us to 'wallow in the middle', Judith Roof offers a fresh, inventive look at female comic secondary characters who, though never on center stage, play an indispensable role in enriching and complicating the course of the narrative.

“Too academic. I was hoping for a discussion of the careers of some of those great character actresses. Try the books of Axel Nissen instead. Much more entertaining reads....”

Ritter, Rosalind Russell, and Whoopi Goldberg, Roof explores what is queer about the middle - in the sense of eccentric and in terms of desire - and how that queerness functions as a part of and an antidote to narrative. Shrewd, pragmatic, self-denying, perceptive, outspoken, and witty, these female characters are able to cross the bounds of social groupings, gender expectations, and propriety, presenting possibilities that threaten the 'fitting ends' of narrative closure: norms such as heterosexuality, production, reproduction, knowledge, and victory. Roof characterizes female seconds as modern-day versions of the Shakespearean fool, able to speak the truth without being punished for it. Discussing films ranging from "Mildred Pierce", "Auntie Mame", and "Rear Window to Stage Door", "Sister Act", and "The Associate", she shows how Hollywood's recasting of the wise servant figure as female, unattached, and lower class reflects more general cultural anxieties about the role of women, gender confusion, race, and class distinctions. She also tracks changes in the form and function of the minor and middle from the stylized, hierarchical economy of classical Hollywood film to the expanded, serial variety fitted to 1990s commodity culture. A meticulous, playful rereading of Hollywood classics from the margins, "All about Thelma and Eve" registers both delight in these female characters and discernment of their integral role in unseating narrative and other norms.
