    Screen legends Rock Hudson, Doris Day and Tony Randall team up for this irresistible comedy gem from director Norman Jewison (Moonstruck). When he overhears a doctor discussing the imminent death of a patient, hypochondriac George (Hudson) believes the doc is referring to him. Convinced he’s living on borrowed time, George enlists the aid of his best friend Arnold (Randall) to find a new husband for his soon-to-be-widowed wife Judy (Day). Already alarmed by her husband’s increasingly strange behavior, Judy is even more bewildered when an old flame shows up – and George bends over backwards to encourage his advances! The third and final on-screen teaming of Rock Hudson and Doris Day, Send Me No Flowers positively sparkles with “top performers…in top form” (The Hollywood Reporter).

    5.0 out of 5 stars DAY & HUDSON BLOOM WITH "FLOWERS" October 26, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    Send Me No Flowers" is the final big screen teaming of Doris Day and Rock Hudson. They would team three more times, professionally - on a Doris Day musical special on CBS in 1971, on "Good Morning America" for a delightful interview in May of 1983 and for Hudson's final appearance before his untimely demise, in 1985 on Day's cable program, "Best Friends".
    Anyone expecting a rehash of "Pillow Talk" or "Lover Come Back" may be disappointed in "Send Me No Flowers". Those seeking and able to enjoy an adult comedy that is wry, witty, darkly funny and extremely well acted, should find this to be their cup of tea.
    "Send Me No Flowers", based on a successful Broadway play, is the story of the ultimate hypochondriac, George Kimball, played by Hudson, and his loving but long-suffering wife Judy, played by Doris Day. George overhears his doctor discussing another patient who is terminal and leaps to the conclusion that his time is almost up. With the assistance of his sometimes sober neighbor Arnold, played by Tony Randall, he sets out to find a new husband for Judy.
    Thanks to the chemistry of Day, Hudson, and Randall, not to mention their finesse and skill with any situation or line, this works perfectly. The talented direction of Norman Jewison brings out the best in all of the participants and they include Paul Lynde, in a hilarious turn as a salesman for cemetary plots, Clint Walker as a prospective mate for Day,and Edward Andrews as Hudson's patient but befuddled doctor, among others.
    Ultimately, however, it is the team of Doris Day and Rock Hudson that raises this above the level of a merely pleasing comedy and makes it something really special.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another great one from Doris and Rock! June 17, 2001
    Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
    I can't imagine not loving a movie with such a perfect trio as Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall. I could watch this film again and again and laugh hysterically each time!

    George Kimball (Rock Hudson) is a hopeless hypochondriac who, after overhearing his doctor speaking with a specialist about another of his patients, believes he 'could go at any minute'. He convinces his best friend and neighbor Arnold Nash(Tony Randall) of his impending demise causing Arnold to immediately immerse himself in a drunken stupor.

    Deciding to keep his coming death from his wife Judy (Doris Day), George and Arnold set out to find a new husband for her.

    Enter Burt Powers (Clint Walker).

    George is trying to convince Judy that her old school flame is the best thing in the world. When Judy sees George being kissed by a newly divorced woman she immediately jumps to the wrong conclusion. To calm her down George is forced to tell her of his condition.

    The fun of this movie is watching Rock dig deeper and deeper into trouble. Doris Day's character completely belives her beloved is near death and will go to any length to help him. That is, until she learns the truth!

    Paul Lynde who appears as a well-meaning funeral director is a hoot! He brings a whole new element of funny into the film.

    I highly recommend this movie. You certainly will not regret it. I can only hope it will be released onto DVD VERY soon!

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the Day-Hudson comedies! October 15, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    The inimitable comedy team of Doris Day and Rock Hudson teamed up for the third time with Tony Randall in 1964's "Send Me No Flowers", one of the most enjoyable and hilarious films from the team of Day and Hudson.
    Doris and Rock are Judy and George Kimball, a happily married suburban couple. The only nitch in their lives together is that George is a ridiculously hopeless hypochondriac (i.e. taking his temperature in a hot shower). One day, on one of his many weekly trips to his doctor, he overhears the doctor dictating the soon-to-be mortality of another patient... and believes himself to be the unlucky fellow. He enlists a family friend, Arnold Nash (Randall), to help him find a new partner for his dear wife who suspects nothing. Randall not only does this, but even complies to write a eulogy between his massive drinking. Judy begins to suspect George when he encourages her friendship with an old college chum, Bert Power (Clint Walker), and accuses him of having an affair. George confesses his condition to his stunned, tearful wife. But when Judy finds out from the doctor that her husband is in perfect condition, she is out to get back at her cheating husband!
    A laugh-sprinkled script, and a marvelous supporting cast (including Paul Lynde as the overly-enthusiastic manager of a cemetery) a lovely title song, and the great comic team of Day, Hudson, and Randall come together to make "Send Me No Flowers" a great feel-good film that will always delight you!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Meg Ryan, you can't touch Doris Day! February 2, 2001
    Format:VHS Tape
    I am a newcomer to Doris Day films. An 80's child, I grew up thinking she was the queen of cheese based on things I'd heard about her films. I'm so glad I took my best friend's advice and checked her stuff out. This particular duo, Hudson, Day, and Randall are now on my fave list for comedy. The comedy here is real - not chock full of unnecessary sexual connotation and scatological references. Don't tell me films about people who are already married and trying to stay together are boring. Hudson and Day are proof of that. The script in this film is great - far more original than anything I've seen lately. Hudson is a hypochondriac who mistakenly believes he's been diagnosed with only a few weeks to live. The film's play on hypochondriacs is great in and of itself - right on the nose about this type of personality! His task to find a new husband for Day weaves a great web of complicated misunderstandings that leave you rolling. The film is full of great detail. I particularly like the way the filmmakers actually found someone to make Rock Hudson look small and puny - the scenes between Hudson and his wife's "future husband" are hilarious. My husband almost choked watching this hulk of a man trying to climb out of a fashionable little sports car. Ladies, my 27 year old husband liked this film as much as I did. I don't think any man could sit through the conversations between Hudson and Randall without a good laugh. I highly recommend this trio for anyone ready for a good script, and a good laugh.
