Format: DVD
Peyton Reed's execrable retro-tribute to the beloved Doris Day-Rock Hudson pairings, 2003's Down with Love with Renée Zellweger and Ewan MacGregor, simply proved that some movies should not be copied out of their time. Presented in a two-disc 2007 DVD package, the trio of films Day and Hudson made for Universal between 1959 and 1964 are hardly pinnacles in cinema history, but they show what deft writing, nimble direction and expert farceurs can do to make these soufflé-light romantic comedies thoroughly enjoyable. Not coincidentally, all three films have storylines that turn on acts of deception initiated by Hudson's character, whether intended or not, and then it becomes a series of humiliations and comeuppances before the inevitable happy ending.

Directed with Eisenhower-era panache by Michael Gordon, 1959's luxuriant-looking Pillow Talk fruitfully began not only the stars' partnership but a phase in both careers that redirected them into sophisticated adult-oriented comedies. Day plays uptight interior decorator Jan Morrow, who shares a party line (apparently a common practice in the 1950's) with lecherous Broadway tunesmith Brad Allen played by Hudson. They have never met in person, so their animosity builds as they eavesdrop on each other's private phone conversations. Brad finally meets Jan in a nightclub, becomes instantly smitten and then pretends to be a gentlemanly Texan named Rex Stetson in order to deflower her.

Format: DVD
(Of course, not everyone has neglected these movies. So if you're already familiar with PILLOW TALK and LOVER COME BACK, feel free to skip this paragraph.) In 1959 Ross Hunter's production of PILLOW TALK hit the screens, and in what TIME magazine called "the World Series of sex" paired Doris Day and Rock Hudson in a romantic farce in a sophisticated milieu (NYC interior decorating), based on a confusion-of-identity perpetuated by Rock's character. Miss Day was just entering the period where she was America's top movie actress, and once their respective schedules finally clicked, the duo was re-united for LOVER COME BACK in 1962. It too is set in a sophisticated milieu (NYC advertising) and the plot depends on confusion-of-identity, yada yada. But the fans loved it. I do too, because IMHO it's just as irresistible as PILLOW TALK.

Fewer people are familiar with SEND ME NO FLOWERS (1964), the third and final installment of the Day/Hudson coupling. As in the first two flicks, Tony Randall appears as the best friend, but otherwise this is a very different scenario. Set in sunny Southern California, Hudson's character is cast against type as a neurotic hypochondriac who mistakenly believes his death is imminent, whereupon he starts trying to fix up his wife (Day) with a suitably studly companion for after he's gone.

Enter Clint Walker, six foot seven inches of American masculinity, a financial success who drives what's probably the most uncircumsized automobile ever to come out of Great Britain: the original Jaguar XKE. There's a world of comically sexual subtext going during the first time Doris and Rock break bread with Clint: "You mean your company makes those little bitty transistors?

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Doris and Rock's movies, so I was instantly attracted to this good deal. I do not regret my purchase one bit. First, about the packaging.
I have never seen such attractive packaging for classic movies before. The box opens up and you find a separate box containing the discs. It folds out and you are welcomed with a full photo from Pillow Talk. Then it folds open again and reveals the dvds. There is a pocket for the Doris Day music cd, which contains eight songs from her movies, a pocket for Pillow Talk, with a scene from Pillow Talk on the background of the pocket, a pocket for Lover Come Back with a scene as well, and also Send Me No Flowers. The pictures are vivid and romantic, really portraying the type of movies Doris and Rock were known for. The only gripe I really have, is that there are no keep cases (the boxes you usually buy dvd's in), only the pockets so extra care has to be given so that they don't get scratched. Now onto the dvd's themselves.
No changes have been made to the dvd's other than that Lover Come Back is new to dvd. I am still not crazy about the quality of the picture, being that it is a dvd. However, I do appreciate that the movies are seen in widescreen, which in my opinion gives it the edge of the vhs versions.
Looking at the overall presentation, this collector's set is the best dvd deal I have seen in a long time. The attractive, unusual packaging, the fact that you get three dvd's and a cd for just over $20 cannot be beat. Grab this up while you can, it will make a great addition to anyone's dvd collection young or old.
