Growing up, Pillow Talk was one of my all-time favorite classic films — but in recent years, I have gotten to know other Doris Day films, and my love for her has just grown and grown. From Hitchcock’s thriller The Man Who Knew Too Much to the light-hearted Please Don’t Eat the Daisies she just NEVER fails to charm.
When it comes to old films, I have some favorites, and Pillow Talk is one of them. Starring Doris Day and Rock Hudson, it may not be fodder for an Academy Award but who cares? It's hilarious!
Doris Day plays a non-nonsense woman who falls in love with a complete womanizer (think Sam on Cheers! or Will Smith's Hitch). He even has his own jingle to charm his lady-friends. "You are my inspiration... Eileeeeeeen..." he croons. All he has to do is switch out the name of his targeted female at the end of the line. It's brilliant. More men should do it just to get a laugh.
