Product Description

Collection of nine classic movies starring Doris Day. In 'Pillow Talk' (1959), Jan Morrow (Day) is a level-headed interior designer who shares a phone line with resident swinging bachelor Brad Allen (Rock Hudson). He annoys her by hogging the line with calls to his numerous girlfriends, whilst she irritates him by her refusal to accept his sweet-talking charms. Brad decides to teach her a lesson by seducing her under an assumed identity, but his plans are complicated by mutual friend Jonathan (Tony Randall), who has his own designs on Jan. In 'That Touch of Mink' (1962), Philip Shayne (Cary Grant) is a wealthy businessman who accidentally muddies the dress of Cathy Timberlake (Day) when his limousine drives past her in the street. She arrives at his office to complain, only to be charmed by Shayne into spending the day with him in Philadelphia. In the period comedy Western 'The Ballad of Josie' (1967), Day plays Josie Minick, a spirited widow who, after being acquitted for accidentally killing her drunken husband, is forced to fend for herself in the harsh man's world of sheep and cattle farming. In 'Lover Come Back' (1961), Jerry Webster (Hudson) and Carol Templeton (Day) are advertising rivals who are forever competing for the same accounts. When Jerry steals a client from Carol, she determines to infiltrate his company and find out who his latest, top secret, VIP account owner is and woo him to her side. Little does Carol realise that the mystery scientist responsible for Jerry's new product is none other than Jerry himself! In 'The Man Who Knew Too Much' (1956), while on holiday in Morocco Dr Ben McKenna (James Stewart), his wife, former singer Jo (Day), and son Hank (Christopher Olsen) are befriended by the Draytons (Bernard Miles and Brenda De Banzie), an English couple who take them to the local bazaar. While there a disguised man is shot in the back and whispers a dying message to Ben, entrusting him with the identity of a British politician who is due to be assassinated. After being questioned by the police, he and Jo return to their hotel, only to discover that the Draytons have checked out and taken Hank with them in order to ensure Ben's silence. In 'Midnight Lace' (1960), newly-wed heiress Kit Preston (Day) is unnerved by a series of threatening telephone calls and near-fatal 'accidents' but she finds her husband Anthony (Rex Harrison) less than sympathetic. He believes that the danger is all in her mind, while she sees potential suspects everywhere... In 'Send Me No Flowers' (1964), Hudson and Day team up for their third and final film together. George Kimball (Hudson) is a hypochondriac who mistakenly believes that he is going to die after overhearing his doctor discussing a terminal case. He enlists the help of his best friend and neighbour, Arnold (Randall), in finding a new spouse for wife Judy (Day), but all does not go smoothly. When Judy's former paramour Bert (Clint Walker) shows up at their country club, George finds himself actually encouraging his attentions! In 'The Thrill of It All' (1963), chirpy housewife Beverly Boyer (Day) becomes a celebrity overnight after inadvertently charming the manufacturer of Happy Soap at a dinner party. After a single television appearance Beverly becomes an advertising star - much to the chagrin of her neglected husband, obstetrician Gerald (James Garner). Finally, in 'Young at Heart' (1954), Barney Sloan (Frank Sinatra) is a cynical, down-on-his-luck musician, who reluctantly agrees to help his composer friend Alex Burke (Gig Young) with a new comedy he is working on. However, Barney gains a new perspective on life and love when he meets Alex's irrepressibly perky fiancée, Laurie (Day) - and promptly falls in love with her!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doris made my wife's Day 16 Jan 2010
By Wiz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A Christmas present for my wife who is a lifelong fan of Doris Day. This box set of DVDs is great value and contains some really lovely gentle films. Yes they are from a different era and the world has changed since they were made but they still have the happy knack of drawing you into the stories they tell.

We all sat down as a family (even my 14 year old daughter) and enjoyed "It happened to Jane" which was beautifully told and kept our interest all the way through - can't wait to watch the other five films in the set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great classic comedy 26 Feb 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you love classic comedy then don't miss this box set. You will find youself thrilled with laughter. The period during which these 6 movies were filmed is the 50's and 60's. Also, three of them include the great pair made with Rock Hudson. It was one of the screen's greatest performances as a comedy couple, great chemistry (although in reality something else was happening :) ).

The last movie It Happened to Jane has in its cast Jack Lemmon, probably the greatest comedy actor to come up in Hollywood during the 50's.

Bought for one film in particular - The Thrill of it All, and at a better price than buying off the high street. But like all the films and have watched each one again, enjoying them as I worked through them.
