PILLOW TALK marked the first onscreen pairing for Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Their remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime chemistry made their movies true classics, and PILLOW TALK is still the best of the bunch.

Day plays Jan Morrow, a prim designer, forced to share a telephone partyline with oily womaniser Brad Allen (Hudson). As the sparks fly so do the one-liners, when Brad decides to have a little fun with uptight Jan. He masquerades as a bashful Texan and quickly wins her affections, but has the love-bug also bitten Brad...?

PILLOW TALK marked a resurgence in Doris Day's flagging movie career; and also signalled a long chain of romantic comedy roles ("That Touch of Mink", "The Thrill of It All!", "Move Over, Darling", "The Glass Bottom Boat", "Do Not Disturb").

Rock Hudson would later team with Day again for "Lover Come Back" and "Send Me No Flowers". PILLOW TALK also features stellar work from Thelma Ritter and Tony Randall. Doris looks a treat in some gorgeous Jean Louis gowns and ensembles.

If only Universal had put more work into the DVD. PILLOW TALK is presented in non-anamorphic widescreen, and the print of the film is in bad shape with lots of grain and scratches. There are no solid extras either. This was a landmark film of the period, and I'm sure some decent work could have been done to make it's DVD debut a memorable one. Oh well...

Still, PILLOW TALK is a mandatory disc in your classic film collection, but don't expect miracles with the DVD transfer. (Single-sided, single-layer disc)
