Your choice between the original Broadway cast and the movie soundtrack depends largely on your preference for either Janis Paige on the former and Doris Day on the latter.
Day sings it better, however the Broadway cast album has better sound as well as an overture and three songs, "A New Town is a Blue Town", "Her Is" and "Think of the Time I save" were dropped from the movie.
The soundtrack album, however, includes extended dance music from "I'll Never Be Jealous again" and "Once-a-year-day" and despite the boxy Warner Bros soundtage sound, the music is given a lively performance.

Finally, things are happening in terms of musicals! First we get the DVD version of The Pajama Game which is very fine indeed, and now the long-awaited CD soundtrack. Considering the recording was made in 1957, the sound of this CD is acceptable. At times the recording sounds a little harsh, but the music, songs, and singing are so good that one's ear easily adapts. Doris Day and John Raitt are in their prime and sing beautifully, but so does the rest of the supporting cast. If you love the movie you must own this soundtrack. I only hope "Calamity Jane" (another Doris Day musical) becomes available soon on DVD and CD.

I know that the revival of "The Pajama Game" is a hit-of-the-moment on Broadway, but I still recommend that fans of the revival check out the soundtrack to the 1957 film version of the show. Warner Brothers treated the property in a more respectful manner than was the norm and even imported most of the New York to Hollywood to recreate their roles "in perpetuity." The new addition was box office magnet Doris Day who had already proven in "Calamity Jane" that she could bring rambunctuous charm to the musical. Hearing Day and John Raitt putting "There Once Was A Man" through its paces can still send a shiver down my aging spine.

THE PAJAMA GAME was successfully turned into a hit film starring Doris Day and the bulk of the original Broadway cast (almost unheard-of in Hollywood musicals). The original soundtrack album is a pure joy, and has now been reissued on the Collectables (Sony Special Markets) label.
Doris Day fits perfectly into the role of feisty Babe Williams (Janis Paige played the role on Broadway. Ironically, Day and Paige's careers intertwined several times. They co-starred in ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS, which was Day's movie debut and later played together in PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES). Day's voice fits the music of Richard Adler and Jerry Ross to a tee, and she's especially fetching belting out the anthemic "I'm Not at All in Love".
John Raitt, repeating his Broadway role of the hardnosed superintendent Sid Sorokin, is wonderful, singing the show's beloved ballad "Hey There" and the country-flavoured duet with Doris Day, "There Once Was a Man".
Eddie Foy Jr., Reta Shaw and Carol Haney, all from the Broadway cast, perform with joy and showmanship. Standout numbers include "Once-a-Year Day", "Steam Heat" and "I'll Never Be Jealous Again".
Included as a bonus is "The Man Who Invented Love", a song written and later cut from the film version, recorded by Doris Day with Frank DeVol and his orchestra.

I recently saw this movie and couldn't believe I had never seen it! I knew all the songs, so at some point I must have seen it, but didn't remember the story at all. The songs, the dancing, this is a true feel-good movie. CAUTION: because they are so wonderful, you will get these songs stuck in your head and will not be able to get them out for days, even weeks later!

OK for what it is. But it isn't the 33.3 rpm that I remember and love. It's true CD compared with vinyl is lack luster. It has all the songs and that's great. Plus extra Doris Day songs -- never really wanted. It's kind of disappointing, but you cannot return to the past. I think it's better if I just buy a record player and find an old 33.3 rpm.

For once they got it right. Doris Day being cast as Babe Williams was the smartest thing Warner Brothers ever did. Of course, the original idea was to have Frank Sinatra to take over the male lead in the movie version. Sinatra couldn't accept, but if he had, Janis Paige would have played Babe. With no Sinatra as a boxoffice draw, Jack Warner needed a star. Doris Day was promised sole star billing above the title if she accepted the picture. Janis was out and John Raitt (top-billed on Broadway) was in, but would be billed below the title in the movie version.

Usually, Hollywood gets it wrong. They denied Ethel Merman for "Gypsy" and hired Rosalind Russell, who could not sing; they bypassed Julie Andrews for "My Fair Lady" and hired movie star, Audrey Hepburn, who also couldn't sing and Carol Lawrence was told "you're out and Natalie Wood is in" when "West Side Story" came to the screen. Natalie couldn't sing either. Marnie Nixon's voice was used for both Wood and Hepburn and Lisa Kirk's voice subbed for Russell.

With Doris Day, they got everything: a top movie star, an expert singer , a trained dancer and skilled actress. Plus, she was beautiful and took full command of the role of Babe. I just wish they had kept "The Man Who Invented Love" in the picture. I've never seen a Day musical in which she didn't have a couple of ballads of her own. In this film, they attempted to right that wrong with "Invented Love" but dropped it so that Doris could reprise "Hey There" for historical purposes. They wanted Day on film singing that legendary song.

Overall, a wonderful transition from stage to screen.
