Hundred-Word Review – “Pillow Talk” (1959)


I’ve been convinced that Doris Day can do no wrong. In “Pillow Talk,” Day plays a independent interior decorator who shares a party-line with a playboy song writer (Rock Hudson), as they continually butt heads over control of the phone and each others’ private lives. While the film sets the stage for many mistaken identity romantic comedies, it is the strength of Day’s performance as a witty, outspoken woman that knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to step on some toes to get there, leading to some great comedy and chemistry with the brick wall that is Rock Hudson.

Final Grade: B+
