Pillow Talk ★★★½ 1959

Sex comedy in which a man woos a woman who loathes him. By the way, they share the same telephone party line. Narrative provides minimal indication of the film's strengths, which are many. Classic ‘50s comedy with masters Day and Hudson exhibiting considerable rapport, even when fighting. Lighthearted, constantly funny. 102m/C VHS, DVD . Rock Hudson, Doris Day, Tony Randall, Thelma Ritter, Nick Adams, Lee Patrick; D: Michael Gordon; W: Maurice Richlin, Stanley Shapiro; C: Arthur E. Arling; M: Frank DeVol. Oscars ‘59: Story & Screenplay.
