Starring Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Tony Randall, Thelma Ritter, Nick Adams
Vibrant. Attractive. Funny.
In the days of something called a “party line,” where multiple people shared telephone service with each other, a successful interior decorator, Jan Morrow (Day), finds her line constantly in use by a womanizing stranger, Brad Allen (Hudson). Although the two bicker incessantly, Brad’s feelings change when he sees her in person, so he (knowing she only knows him by his voice) pretends to be a gentleman from Texas in order to woo her. Acts almost as a time capsule as it is very much of its time. The party line, the Doris Day music, the sparkling Eastmancolor. That’s not to say it’s dated badly, because it remains a blast, and the pairing of Day and Hudson (who did a couple of more films together) show great chemistry.
