Transcript Actresses play fall guys in current film dramas For years, actresses railed against the Hollywood tradition of creating movie roles for them either too naughty or too nice to be taken seriously. Let us play characters of complexity, they implored, characters of consequence. Matters certainly have been improving the past few years, but some of those "improvements' might be looked at with some circumspection. For instance, in their recent movies Jane Fonda and Sally Field have the sort of substantial, people-of-importance roles that would, on the surface, reflect the sort of new image being asked for. In Rollover, Fonda becomes the nominal head of a petrochemical company when her owner husband dies. The board of directors is prepared to give a reassuring pat on the head, then send her off to cash dividend checks while they take care of business. But (with the help of an unconventional banker, Kris Kristoffer- son) she outmaneuvers them and grabs the reins, ready to do a little moving and shaking of her own in the world of OPEC and high finance. In Absence of Malice, Sally Field is a no-nonsense reporter on a big city newspaper. She's not there to knock out sob stories about little Johnny learning to walk again or features on turning an orange crate into a Louis XV bureau. She covers the courts and law enforcement beat and probably holds her own trading tough-talk with cops and criminals. Both are authority figures, roles that certainly stand outside the house wife-or-hooker Eric Gerber boundaries that limited Hollywood actresses for so long. But, in each film, the character is later shown to be incapable of handling such a position of power. Each displays the inability to grasp fully the consequences of her actions. They are, the films suggest, in over their heads With Fonda, it is misinterpreting some financial information she stumbles onto suggesting a worldwide financial conspiracy. Her attempts to rectify the situation (and ensure-her own company is not victimized) only exacerbate matters and set off a worldwide financial collapse. Field's damage is less global. The reputation of an honest man (Paul Newman) is besmirched and an innocent, well- intentioned woman commits suicide after an overly ambitious Field is manipulated into reporting some questionable stories a government agency wants to see in print. In short, both Rollover and Absence of Maliceuse women as the fall guy and play off female stereotypes to do so. They've been put in high places only to be knocked down as an audience subconsciously shakes its head and hums Bob Dylan's Just Like a Woman. UPlTeleph Houston Chronicle Monday* March 15,1982 Housewife ends strike Mary Ellen Shaver, center, who refused cook, clean or act as a chauffeur for her three teen-age children, says her month-long strike brought her family closer together.
