Rock Hudson and Doris Day, two of the screen's most popular and enduring stars, light up the screen in Pillow Talk. When Jan Morrow (Day), uptight interior decorator, is forced to share a party line with carefree playboy Brad Allen (Hudson), there's no connection between them. But when the two accidentally meet, the smitten Brad pretends to be a wealthy Texan, wooing Jan with seductive late-night calls. Their phone line is sizzling until Jan discovers her caller's true identity and calls his bluff. Nominated for five Academy Awards® including Best Actress, this enjoyable romp co-stars Tony Randall (TV’s "The Odd Couple") and is the film that brought Rock Hudson and Doris Day together for the first time!

Pillow Talk is a sleekly sophisticated production that deals chiefly with s-e-x.

It often seems complacent and shallow.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 1959's Pillow Talk is a romantic comedy that reflects its period's attitudes toward women, sexuality, and what was perceived as funny. Popular, even iconic, this film is packed with sexual innuendo and coy double meanings. While there is no overt sexual activity, other than some passionate kissing and a young man feebly trying to force his attention on the leading lady, the story is about relationships -- both those that are purely sexual and those that are romantic. More decades-old values onscreen: a featured player with a chronic hangover is seen as humorous, as are several scenes in which characters get very, very drunk; women are referred to as "girls"; homosexuality and obesity are mocked; there's no ethnic diversity; characters smoke; and the glamorous wardrobe includes lots of fur.
