- ‘Single White Female’ Turns 25: Why Lesbian-Phobic Thriller Is Problematic

Bridget Fonda’s Allie Jones pretty much has it all in the opening scene of “Single White Female”: A handsome fiance (played by Steven Weber).An impressive career as an entrepreneur and software programmer.Adapted from John Lutz’s novel “Single White Female Seeks Same,” “SWF” boasts an unbeatable elevator pitch: A woman’s new roommate likes her so much that the roommate tries to become her.The erotic thriller of the ’80s and ’90s was a socially conservative genre; films like “Fatal Attraction” and “Unfaithful” reliably punished sexual and marital transgressors.[...] there’s no denying that “SWF” contributed to a canon of Reagan- and Clinton-era films with LGBTQ killers — a list that includes “Dressed to Kill,” “Cruising,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” and “Basic Instinct.”The anonymity of the city allows a vampire like Hedy to hide in plain sight and for Allie to be suckered into inviting her in.[...] it’s also a movie with a much better premise than its execution, capturing, as it does, the anxieties of living with strangers, the dark side of female friendship, and the replicability — and thus the unexceptionalness — of the identities we work so hard to forge every single day.No wonder, then, that “SWF” has been remade several times already (with another TV adaptation in the works) and seems to have inspired this week’s release “Ingrid Goes West.”The lesbian panic makes “SWF” a memorable watch, with a dangerous villain who herself doesn’t seem to know if she wants a lover, a friend, an aspirational model, or a sister.

The zany Lewis found an ideal straight man in crooner Dean Martin in 1945. They took their stage act to radio, then television, and then to film, where they appeared together 17 times.A haunted castle, a beautiful ghost and a menacing zombie gave Lewis plenty of comedy ammo in 1953’s “Scared Stiff.”Golf pros of the era Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson and Julius Boros joined Martin and Lewis in “The Caddy,” which also featured the Dean Martin classic song “That’s Amore.”Don’t let the title “Artists and Models” fool you. Shirley MacLaine co-starred in this 1955 gem about a man whose life is turned upside down because of his love of comic books.Growing discord between Martin and Lewis resulted in the end of their partnership.
