Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Jan Morrow (Doris Day) and Brad Allen (Rock Hudson) have never met, but they are sworn enemies because of one small appliance in their lives: the telephone. The two share a party line, and Jan is outraged over the amount of time Bill spends wooing women over the phone. A convenient triangle emerges when a client (Tony Randall) of Jan's--she's an interior decorator--falls in love with her and happens to be Brad's old college chum. When Brad makes the connection, he decides to try to court Jan himself, to make her more sympathetic to his phone woes. Of course, she'd never go for such a heel, so he passes himself off as Rex Stetson, a Texas rancher visiting New York. The ensuing tale, albeit predictable, is lots of fun, with some quick-witted dialogue and some clever use of split-screens for the phone calls. Thelma Ritter is hilarious as Jan's always-hung-over maid, Alma; and the pairing of Rock and Doris works beautifully, as always. --Jenny Brown

Product Description

Jan Morrow (Doris 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.

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2012 BLU RAY 'COLLECTOR'S SERIES' BOOK PACK VERSION ***

In April 2012 Universal Studios was 100 years old - and to celebrate that movie-making centenary - they've had 13 of their most-celebrated films fully restored for BLU RAY. But it doesn't stop there. As many as 80 other titles will be given US re-launches across the year each featuring distinctive "100th Anniversary" gatefold card-wrap packaging - and in some cases a host of new features. 1959's iconic "Pillow Talk" is one of the thirteen singled out for full restoration (see list below) - and like the other BLU RAYS in this series so far - both the print and presentation are very tastefully done.

UK released Monday 7 May 2012 - "Pillow Talk Collector's Series" comes in a gorgeous limited edition 44-page 'Book Pack' (Barcode 5050582893144). The outer hardback holder has an awkward card wrapped around it which is attached at the front with a flimsy circular sticker - not the most eloquent of objects it has to be said and it contains info that isn't on the back sleeve of the book pack - so you don't want to lose it. It's hard to keep in place without damage - so I put the whole shebang in a plastic sleeve for protection. It's also worth noting that most of the AMERICAN issues are 'two-disc' sets containing the BLU RAY, the DVD and also means to obtain a Digital Copy via download. It appears that the UK issues will contain ONLY the BLU RAY in the Book Pack. However, if you want say "Out Of Africa" or "Buck Privates" (which have yet to be given UK releases) - the US issues are non-region coded so will play in all machines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romcom heaven 8 July 2006
Format:DVD
The first and best of the Day / Hudson comedies. Reportedly, Rock Hudson was nervous about his ability to manage in a comic role, (or was it the gay innuendo in the script making him nervous) but he needn't have been.

This is a superbly directed and acted romcom of the type that Hollywood just can't seem to do nowadays. The lead actors give excellent performances and the are some wonderful comic set pieces that will make you laugh out loud.

Amongst the supporting cast, Thelma Ritter is perfect as Day's drunken maid (drinking Rock Hudson under the table) and Tony Randall is as effective as always.

If you don't mind it being a little dated, it's about as good a romantic comedy as there is.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll Keep it short!... 11 May 2012
By Tinksjane VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
this review is based on the quality of the transfer to Blu Ray. The film is fantastic good old fashioned fun and is a refreshing early rom com style feel good movie. I have the DVD and I was unsure of whether to upgrade to Blu-Ray......so glad I did, the quality is superb and amazingly good considering the age of the movie now.....if you love this film I would 100% recommend the upgrade to Blu ray, you won't regret it. Picture and sound excellent. I tested this on a Sony Blu ray player and Samsung 51" Plasma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 6 Jan 2013
By E. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It's great to see this film on bluray, with its eye-popping colours and marvelous set and costume design.

It's like what Mad Men probably had in mind when they started, where everyone was beautifully dressed and lived a wonderful lifestyle we could only aspire to. To think this was filmed in 1959 makes it so much more interesting, with everything being genuine and of its time.

The storyline is predictable and innocent by current standards, but was probably a little risque and advanced for that period. If nothing else, it's worth getting just to see Doris looking absolutely sensational in her white dress, long white gloves and white fur jacket. To think she has a wholesome image, yet can look this unbelievably alluring.

Rock looks fantastically suave as well, perfect for the role, and they are ably supported by an equally suave Tony Randall and comedy drunk Thelma Ritter. We loved the scene with Doris and Tony in the diner near the end, but there are so many wonderful colourful scenes of nightclub sophistication and lovely costumes that your eyes will need a rest afterwards just to calm down.

There are a also few songs, which have their place and never feel incongruous.

A real romantic comedy classic and one which will deserve repeated viewings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doris Day- Legend 5 Mar 2013
By Janice
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What can you say about this film, great story, a great double act of Rock Hudson and Doris Day. They truly had a wonderful relationship when making films together. She is stunning, even more so now it's in Blu-Ray. A must for any Doris Fay fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Universal digibook 26 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I just got the UK digibook and it looks great! Region free, same extras as the U.S. release (just no DVD, which is okay) and the digibook continues Universal's tradition of having the best-designed books (All Quiet on the Western Front, To Kill A Mockingbird, Buck Privates). And the film looks terrific. If you don't care about the DVD, and would like to save money, get this from Amazon UK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Love 20 Jun 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Doris Day is the hard working single girl trying to make a phone call on her party line - Rock Hudson is the music writing playboy hogging the party line with phone calls off of his many girl friends. A chance meeting with Day shows him what the other end of his party line looks like - he approves and there starts a web of fun and deception and he plays a texan visiting New York. Day is great in this role as the single girl looking for love, and Hudson is perfect as the obnoxious guy she knows on the other end of the party line and the perfect gentleman he pretends to be. The music is great and the pace of the movie is all about Fun. Tony Randall is great as Hudsons best friend.

Looks great on Blu Ray. A fun movie. At the time it was made this film was considered risqué. It pushed the envelope as far as it could within the ratings code of the day.
