  • The girl next door or the All-American girlis an archetype of a kind, unassuming, and honest girl or woman who lives near by, often in a romantic story. The male equivalent is the boy next door. During World War II, American propaganda often invoked her as the symbol of all things American. Songs on the armed forces request radio programs were not of Rosie the Riveter but of women waiting for soldiers. Many such songs were also popular at the home front. Themes of love, loneliness, and separation were given more poignancy by the war. Hugh Hefner required Playboy centerfolds to be portrayed in this specific manner, telling photographers in a 1956 memo that reads, "[the] model must be in a natural setting engaged in some activity 'like reading, writing, mixing a drink... [and] should have a healthy, intelligent, American look—a young lady that looks like she might be a very efficient secretary or an undergrad at Vassar.'" (en)

La girl next door (c'est-à-dire « la fille d'à côté », la fille qui pourrait être votre voisine) ou all-American girl est un archétype culturel et sexuel américain qui désigne une femme à la féminité modeste et non prétentieuse. Cet archétype s'oppose par exemple au garçon manqué, à la femme fatale ou à la femme sexuellement active. L'équivalent masculin est le boy next door. Deux exemples de next door sont donnés dans Les Aventures de Tom Sawyer de Mark Twain : Tom Sawyer lui-même et Becky Thatcher. La girl next door a une personnalité ouverte et ses intentions sociales, économiques, et sexuelles ne sont pas dissimulées. Le personnage de la girl next door est généralement une fille que le protagoniste mâle principal aura connu dans sa jeunesse. Elle a un tempérament affectueux et amical et a le profil parfait pour être présentée à ses parents. Tomber amoureux d'une girl next door est un archétype américain des comédies romantiques. Cette image innocente est le socle du fantasme mettant en scène une girl next door cachant une femme au tempérament sexuel agressif. C'est le thème notamment du film américain The Girl Next Door (2004). (fr)
