Movie review & trailer: Pillow Talk (1959)

The reel dope: Pillow Talk

Pillow Talk” doesn’t go quite that far — at least the pillows are on separate beds — but it’s frankly a comedy about sex. And a delightful one it is, too. Doris Day and Rock Hudson, roundly assisted by Tony Randall, Thelma Ritter, Julia Meade, Allen Jenkins, and Mary McCarty, sustain it surprisingly well — much more happily than any brief outline might suggest.

Anyhow: Hudson, a songwriter, and Miss Day, an interior decorator, share a party line. She gets fed up with his use of the telephone to sing the same love song to each of his gals — only the gal’s name being changed for each call. But by the time it’s Miss Day’s turn, she has become a willing listener. In color.
