Teacher’s Pet (1958)

Cocky, jug-eared and slit-eyed Clark Gable plays a journalist called James Gannon who is asked to lecture at a school for journalism, but when he sees teacher Erica Stone (Doris Day) he decides to enrol as a pupil.

Pretty soon he’s the star of the class. But there’s a rival for Miss Gannon’s affections – a psychology professor called Dr Hugo Pine (Gig Young). Their rivalry leads to a memorable funny scene where the two men try to slip each other Mickey Finns at a nightclub so as to be alone with Erica.
