Pillow Talk

Year: 1959
Production Country: USA
Directed by: Michael Gordon
Featuring: Rock Hudson / Tony Randall
Running time: 102min
Certificate: PG

Split-screen bubble-bath scenes, mistaken identities and a gay man playing a straight man pretending to be gay, in one of the most delicious rom-coms ever made.

Synopsis

Accept no substitutes: the first of the three Doris Day-Rock Hudson (no-)sex comedies is easily the best and one of the most delicious rom-coms ever made. Day received her only Oscar nomination for her role as a sharply dressed interior decorator infuriated by the antics of philandering composer Hudson with whom she shares a phone-line. Split-screen bubble-bath scenes, mistaken identities, real-life closeted Hudson playing a straight man pretending to be gay, and Thelma Ritter as a permanently hungover maid only add to the fun.
