Rock Hudson reveals a deft talent for comedy in Pillow Talk in which he plays philandering songwriter Brad Allen whose shared party phone line with interior designer Jan Morrow (Doris Day) leads to romantic complications.
Directed by Michael Gordon, produced by Ross Hunter, and sleek as a brand-new Cadillac in Eastmancolor and Cinemascope, Pillow Talk features a superb supporting cast that includes Tony Randall as Jonathan Forbes, one of Day’s disappointed suitors, and Thelma Ritter as a tipsy maid called Alma.
It’s a departure too for Day. As she swaps the suburban housewife look for haute couture.
