Synopsis The first Rock Hudson/Doris Day movie tells the story of an odd couple who share a party line, eventually falling in love in spite of themselves. He's a womanizing cad, and she's a perky career gal with uncompromising moral standards and fine home furnishings. Academy Award Nominations: 5, including Best Actress--Doris Day. Academy Awards: Best Screenplay.Due to a shortage of telephone trunk lines, songwriter Brad Allen and interior decorator Jan Morrow are forced to share a party line. The two take an immediate dislike to each other since Jan considers Brad a playboy who ties up the line constantly making romantic overtures to a variety of women, while Brad considers Jan a sexually frustrated prude who has nothing better to do than snoop into his private affairs. But when Brad discovers how attractive the other half of his party line is, he devises a plan to seduce her by masquerading as a virtuous Texan.Filmed in Eastmancolor and Cinemascope. Original aspect ratio: 2.35:1. Production company: Arwin. Additional cast: Hayden Rorke (Mr. Conrad), Valerie Allen (Eileen), Jacqueline Beer (Yvette), Arlen Stuart (Mr. Walters), Robert B. Williams (Mr. Graham), Muriel Landers (Fat Girl), Karen Norris (Miss Dickenson), and Lois Rayman (Jonathan's secretary). Copyright 1959 Arwin Productions, Inc. Renewed 1987 Universal Studios, Inc.Nominated for five Oscars, PILLOW TALK led to two more Day/Hudson collaborations, but this is by far the best. -- Grade: B+3 stars out of 5 -- [I]ts star chemistry and warm colours going down like a strong daiquiri. Think MAD MEN without the dark undercurrents.A museum piece that's fresh as a daisy, textbook romantic comedy PILLOW TALK remains remake-proof because its meet-cute involves a telephone party line...
