Rating for this movie -- 5 Stars.
Rating for the 2004 DVD version of the film -- 1 Star.

"Pillow Talk" stars Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Tony Randall, and Thelma Ritter. It remains today what it was when released in October of 1959, and that is -- a highly-entertaining and well-acted romantic comedy.

The film was re-released on DVD-Video by Universal Studios on April 6th, 2004. This newer version has been enhanced for 16x9 widescreen TVs, and the anamorphic enhancement has helped in many places. However, the picture quality here does seem to be a bit of a "hit and miss" proposition. Several portions of the movie still look rather crummy (artifact-wise), exhibiting obvious dirt speckles and "noise". The opening titles sequence is peppered with dirt and artifacts galore, as are a few other parts of the film, particularly ALL of the "split screen" scenes. For some reason, it seems that these "split screen" shots could not be cleaned-up nearly as much as the other portions of the movie.

But by far the biggest atrocity is the fact that this 2004 DVD print has been mis-framed! In some places pretty badly, too. Head room is way too tight here, with the tops of many character's heads being cut off. This was NOT the case with the previous 1999 DVD print of this movie.

When you compare the '99 print with this 2004 one, the mis-framing is obvious in many places. It appears that this new print has been "zoomed in" quite a bit, creating the tight head room. Some of the most blatant examples of this "zooming in" occur in Chapter 10, where the piano player's head is severely cropped. Whereas, on the '99 DVD, her entire head is visible in the frame.

Doris Day and Rock Hudson are perhaps the best duo in movie history. Pillow Talk is one of the most clever comedies ever made. This film is about a painful reality in the 50's- party lines. When Jan Morrow wants to use her phone, she must first listen to her other "party" Brad Allen romance the women. She finally works out a deal with him to each have a thirty minute slot where they can make calls, but selfish Brad doesn't adhere to the rules at all! Brad accidentally meets the other end of his party line at a restaurant, and makes a quick decision to become someone else. He ultimately romances Jan, while she has no idea that he is her arch enemy. For it's time, Pillow Talk was one of the more risque films, but yet one of the funniest and most romantic ever made.

On that note, I have to say I was so disappointed with this DVD. There are no extras to speak of other than the trailer and some production notes. As successful as the stars of this movie were, you think Universal could have put a little more punch into this DVD. The quality of the DVD is also quite poor. There was no digital remastering, only a direct copy from vhs to dvd. If you are a person who only has dvd's, I would still get this because this is such a classic, you have to have it around. If you still have your vhs machine, get it on vhs, it's cheaper and not any less quality than the dvd.

I was so excited to see that Universal is making a special edition of PILLOW TALK's 50th Anniversary on dvd. The 1959 comedy romance movie about an interior decorator Jan Morrow (Doris Day) who shares a party line with a womanizing wolf Brad Allen (Rock Hudson),was an unbelievable box office hit in 1959, and I thought Universal will really make this Golden Anniversary of the film a great one! Upon viewing the film, I at once noticed nothing new. I am a huge Doris Day fan, so I pulled out my other Pillow Talk dvd copies, looked at them side by side and here's the facts:
This dvd is the EXACT dvd that was made for the 2007 THE DORIS DAY AND ROCK HUDSON COMEDY COLLECTION, which includes all 3 movies they made together: Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back and Send Me No Flowers.

This 2007 Doris/Rock Set is an improvement over the Pillow Talk dvd's that were made in 2004 and earlier, as Universal "remastered" it with a tiny bit more brightness, a tiny bit more detail and a tiny bit more frame area. 2007 was the first year Universal made tiny "upgrades" to Pillow Talk when they made this Doris Day/Rock Hudson dvd set. All they did for this 50th Anniversary Set, was use this 2007 Pillow Talk dvd.

This Anniversary Edition includes these Bonus Features:
Commentary with Film Historians Jeff Bond, Julie Kirgo and Nick Redman.
Chemistry 101: The Film Duo of Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Featurette that talks about how filmmakers first saw the sparks between Doris and Rock, and how that made them put the duo together for 2 more successful films.
Back in Bed with Pillow Talk: Film Historians, experts, authors, cast and crew discuss the many elements that propelled PILLOW TALK to a top box office spot for Universal Studios in 1959.

Of all the classic comedies that starred Doris Day and Rock Hudson, or the two stars with other co-stars, this remains my favorite.The legendary late Rock Hudson was at his peak in this romantic comedy, and who better to showcase his charms against, than quintessential girl-next-door, Doris Day. Hudson thrives on his ability to charm indeed, as a songwriter named Brad Allen. Brad is a love-em and leave-em kind of guy, who entertains a seemingly endless array of lovesick females at his well equipped bachelor pad. He also sings to them over the phone for hours on end, tying up the telephone party-line he shares with Jan Morrow, interior designer, enter a perturbed Doris Day. Every time Jan picks up the phone, she hears Brad sing "You're My Inspiration...", and always with a new girls' name attached to the end. Flabbergasted at his womanizing, she sends a phone company rep to have a word with Mr. Allen, only to find that she TOO has fallen for the tall dark and handsome playboy.

Jan tells her boyfriend of sorts played by the wonderful veteran comedy legend Tony Randall, about her dialing dilemma. Randall, as always, plays himself. He's neat, dapper and proper, as not only Jan's boyfriend, but Brad Allen's friend and boss as well. After extoling the virtues of Jan to Brad, and mentioning that she shares a party-line with "some nut", describing the singing phone routine, Brad is too curious to find out what Randall is so wild about. After Brad Allen finally glimpses Jan Morrow dancing at a club, and sees the other end of his party line is not the shrew he expected, he sets out for his sweetest conquest of all.

"Pillow Talk" is a timeless gem of classic comedy. Amazingly, it was considered quite risque in it's time.
