4.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Love, 20 Jun 2003
This review is from: Pillow Talk [VHS] [1959] (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You're my inspiration...", 14 July 2013

Jan Morrow (Doris Day) is an interior decorator that relies on her telephone for business. Brad Allen (Rock Hudson) is a songwriter who relies on his telephone for monkey business. Turns out that they both share the same party line. Yep you saw it coming. Unknown to either of them, the Broadway producer that Brad is writing for, Jonathan Forbes (Tony Randall), is as close to love with Doris day as he was with his previous wives. Putting two and two together, rock Hudson realizes that his party line antagonist is a blonde cutie.

Knowing that he does not have a chance with her if he reveals his true identity, he takes on Texas persona (Rex Stetson.) Will this work? Will Tony Randall find out? Better still will Doris day find out the truth? Will decorating sense prevail? This could get ugly.
Look for the split screen scenes while they are talking on the phone. And Doris gets a chance to sing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doris Day doing what she does best, 12 Jan 2004
This review is from: Pillow Talk [VHS] [1959] (VHS Tape)
A very funny Doris Day musical that can be enjoyed over and over again. Against the tall, rugged, handsome Rock Hudson, Ms Day plays a strong independent single woman who is fed up with sharing a telephone line with him and listening to the endless drivel that he feeds his women. But it's only when Hudson takes on a alternate identity in order to seduce Ms Day that the true fun starts.
The film is well acted with Day somehow still managing to sing a couple of times. It's a film that is fun it does not take itself too seriously. To critically analyse it would be fruitless. It is a timeless classic which is easy to watch and perfect for a girlie night it!

5.0 out of 5 stars There mjst be a pillow talking boy for me, 9 Aug 2006

OK - in a nutshell Rock and DD have never met but they share a phone line - he's always hogging it singing the same schmoozy song to a variety of women and the pair dislike each other UNTIL Rock sees her in a bar one night and finds out who she is and decides she's the woman for him - he knows he'll get nowhere if she finds out who he is so he pretends to be a naive homesick Texan and starts dating her. You see this is the way to win a woman!!! Fantastic!!. Rock Hudson is button meltingly gorgeous, DD's wardrobe is fab, it's bright, its cheery, its colourful, the songs are just cheese on a stick - how can you not like a song with the words Yah Yah roly Poly - Just great!
