Pillow Talk

type
  • Movie

Just because something’s old doesn’t mean it’s stale. Take Doris Day and Rock Hudson’s fizzy, feisty romantic comedy Pillow Talk (1959, Not Rated, 1 hr., 43 mins.). Just out on Blu-ray, Michael Gordon’s stylish classic pits America’s Sweetheart against Hollywood’s top Eisenhower-era hunk in a battle of the sexes loaded with cheeky double entendres and naughty subtext. Day plays an uptight interior decorator who shares a telephone party line with Hudson’s songwriting playboy. Naturally, they bicker their way into each other’s arms. Nominated for five Oscars, Pillow Talk led to two more Day/Hudson collaborations, but this is by far the best. B+
