Summary: The fabulously successful Pillow Talk was essentially Shop Around the Corner for the 1950s. Playboy composer Rock Hudson and interior-decorator Doris Day are obliged to share a telephone party line. Naturally, their calls overlap at the least opportune times, and just as naturally, this leads to Hudson and Day despising each other without ever having met in person. In a cute but convenient coincidence, Doris' boy friend is Tony Randall, who also happens to be Hudson's best pal. Thus Hudson gets a glimpse at Day, and it's love at first sight. To avoid revealing that he's her telephone rival, Hudson poses as a wealthy Texan and turns the charm on Day. But when he starts pitching woo, Day instantly recognizes all the "make-out" lines Hudson has used on the phone with his other conquests. She gets even by decorating Hudson's apartment in a hideous manner. But Hudson loves her all the same; he "kidnaps" her, carrying her through the streets in her nightgown in full view of everyone, including a laughing cop who refuses to intervene. He praises her horrifying interior decoration job effusively, and at this point Day can't help but give in to his marriage proposal. A bit too arch and cute for modern tastes at times, Pillow Talk is still one of the best of the frothy Doris Day-Rock Hudson vehicles; it made a fortune at the box office and garnered five Oscar nominations. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Rebecca Flint Marx

Hopelessly sexist by contemporary standards, Pillow Talk remains one of the perfect examples of the 1950s sex comedy. It practically bursts with coquettish prudery, winking at the viewer before closing the bedroom door and displaying the sort of barely concealed sexual anxiety that encouraged strong-jawed displays of testosterone among men and virtuoso virtue among women. In addition to providing a window through which to observe the sexual politics of the 1950s, the film is also the most enduring of the Doris Day-Rock Hudson comedies. Day is obscenely wholesome, Hudson is the epitome of a suave Neanderthal, and, together, they comprise one of the most perfectly mismatched couples ever captured on celluloid. It's a silly affair, a classic romantic comedy that bounces along on candy-colored charm and glib wit. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
