Friday Flicks: Pillow Talk

I love the Doris Day/Rock Hudson rom coms. Their chemistry on screen was magical. I've seen all their movies and Pillow Talk (1959) is my favorite. I want to strangle Rock for deceiving Doris, but she gets him back big time. And of course in the end we see that they were made for each other. Tony Randall is brilliant in all the Doris/Rock movies and even though his character is virtually the same in each one (best friend of Rock with a "thing" for Doris), he is hilarious. Story in a nutshell: Doris is an interior decorator and shares a party line with Rock, a womanizing songwriter. When Rock finds out she's a beautiful woman, he want to put the moves on her so he pretends he's a wealthy rancher from Texas just visiting New York. She falls for the ruse, mistakenly thinking he's a sweet, unassuming gentleman. Here is the "pot-bellied stove" scene:

Hi Craig: I guess rom coms are mostly for the ladies...so I'll cut you some slack. However, hubby LOVE rom com! He's a great movie date.
