Movie Info

Light and laugh-filled, Send Me No Flowers is typical Rock Hudson and Doris Day fare. George (Hudson) is a hypochondriac married to Judy (Day) in this marital comedy. When George goes to visit the doctor, he overhears two doctors talking about a diagnosis of a terminally ill patient. George believes they are talking about him and that he is doomed to die. He recruits his friend Arnold (Tony Randall) to find a new husband for Judy. Judy thinks George is covering up for an illicit affair and

At 40, [Day] should maybe stop trying to play Goldilocks.

Send Me No Flowers doesn't carry the same voltage, either in laughs or originality.

Probably the best of the Doris Day/Rock Hudson vehicles.

It is a beautiful farce situation, and Julius Epstein has written it, from a play by Norman Barasch and Carroll Moore, with nimble inventiveness and style.

The last and weakest Hudson-Day pairing is lame from the starting gate.

Hudson-Day sex farce (that is, in 1964) is fun relic today.

...a desperate attempt to recapture Pillow Talk's charming and effortlessly delightful atmosphere.

Jewison's cockeyed comedy works its romantic magic with the flighty entanglement of the Hudson-Day charming kooky connection

Pretty good romantic comedy that's a bit too cute.

There's enough humour in the ensuing misunderstandings and enough skill in the playing and direction to stifle not just criticism but even the odd yawn.

Audience Reviews for Send Me No Flowers

Poor George, who thinks he's dying, tries to find a suitable husband for his wife after he's passed on. Light and breezy comedy of errors is like a gorgeously shot sitcom full of colorful production design that highlights suburban style of the mid-60s. Coy screenplay by Julius J. Epstein, based on the play by Norman Barasch and Carroll Moore, is surprisingly suggestive at times, in a very naive sort of way. Stars Doris Day and Rock Hudson display great chemistry in their third and last pairing together. The enthusiastic cast also includes Tony Randall, Paul Lynde and Clint Walker. Everyone inhabits their characters so comfortably, it's like they've been playing them on the stage for years. Whimsical music by Frank De Vol boosts this playful farce.

Probably the greatest of the Doris Day-Rock Hudson comedies and when this came out in 1964,this was to be considered the last of great comedies of the 1960's that starred Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Hilarious hijinks ensumes with Tony Randall,Edward Andrews and the great Paul Lynde. Clint Walker also stars.
