Format: DVD
Agreeable romantic comedy with Clark Gable as gruff City Editor, Jim Gannon. He's an uneducated man and proud of it. But he finds himself falling for journalism professor Erica Stone (Doris Day). Gig Young is very funny in his role as the relentlessly successful Dr Hugo Pine, psychologist and bongo player extraordinaire of whom Gannon is so jealous.
Some of the dialogue is a little stilted, and at times the film has the feel of a stage play about it, but it's always entertaining. The scene at the Bongo Club with an embarrassed Jim Gannon getting hot and bothered as his girlfriend performs her raunchy (for the time) night club act, is a real hoot. Gable plays the scene to perfection and his character's discomfort is all too apparent to the much amused Erica.
This is a much underrated (by the professional critics) comedy and it's a pity that the DVD offers nothing in the way of extras except subtitles and audio in various languages. The film clocks in at nearly two hours, but it's such a pleasant diversion that it doesn't feel that long.

Gosh! This is a super-duper film about journalism that just dips slightly towards the end. Jim Gannon (Clark Gable) a dyed-in-the-wool self taught successful journalist with little schooling. Erica Stone (Doris Day) a professor and teacher of journalistic skills. Jim has been invited to give a lecture to Erica's students. He replies with an unabridged letter as to what he actually thinks about journalism as a university subject. However, his editor insists that he goes and instructs Erica's pupils. When he arrives, he finds that Miss Stone is a blonde bombshell and doesn't introduce himself. Instead, he masquerades as one of her students, in fact, in no-time-at-all he becomes her star pupil. This deception goes on for most of the film. It is delightful, and engaging.
These screen legends of yesteryear, never appeared in bad films, they were far more discerning than today's actors and actresses.
The transfer to DVD is excellent.

By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Sept. 2012
Format: DVD
Teacher's Pet regularly gets shown still on Sky Movies (where I saw it), indicating that it's still a quality film.

When you think of the great romantic couplings in cinema history, Gable and Day/Day & Gable, don't exactly roll off the tongue. It's actually a threesome, here, but in a typically innocent 1950's style, along with young upstart Gig Young.

As publishing editor, Gable goes along to a class led by lecturer Day, to prove that his trade cannot be taught but learned through decades of hard graft. Of course, he falls for her but has to contend with her psychologist fiance. In the days where all this 'psych' stuff was still mumbo-jumbo, for such a cynic, well - you can picture the juicy scenes that result, where each try to out-do the other to earn Day's affections.

It is a comedy, but an intelligent one but also engaging too, with little of the heady froth that Doris Day ended up doing later (many enjoy these, I know - I don't). The script is smart and knowing and Gable in particular has an especially arched brow and raised eye, adding to the overall enjoyment. It's crisply photographed in black & white and ably directed by George Seaton.

Clark Gable here looks very common and ordinary trying hard to impress Doris Day.Its a movie about whether experience is more important or professional training or studies too matter.Gable plays editor of a Newspaper who thinks journalism is taught by experience and rubbishes training course for Journalism.He writes a offensive letter to Doris Day who teaches Journalism and is sent by his Boss later to say sorry to her,he ends up enrolling in her class and falling madly in love with her. Doris Day herself is the Daughter of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist,she is lovely and composed here.Gig Young who plays her over accomplished boy friend is quite charming.His scenes with Clark Gable are a joy to watch.The movie is very well written and drives home its point wonderfully about the necessity of professional education.

I bought this film because Doris Day and Clark Gable are two of my all time favourite actors. They both "do" comedy very well and they certainly didn't disappoint during this film. Gable plays Jim Gannon a newspaper editor and Day plays Professor Stone a lecturer in journalism at the local university. Professor Stone sends an invite to Gannon asking him to be a guest speaker in one of her classes but Gannon who is negatively opinionated about schools for journalism writes a scathing reply and declines the invite. He is ordered by his boss to apologise to Professor Stone in person but when he sees that she is an attractive, curvaceous, blonde he has other ideas and masquerades as one of her students. I recommend you watch this film and see how his fun unfolds.

Enjoyed re-seeing this film that was as good now after all these years as it was the first time I saw it!!!
Yes, perhaps Clark Gable was a bit too old for the role.....but he plays it to perfection! One of Doris Day's best films along with "A Touch of Mink" with Cary Grant!
