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.Read more ›
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.
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?Read more ›
