Movie Info

This romantic comedy stars Rock Hudson as Carter Harrison, an executive rising through the ranks of a major oil company. When he meets Toni Vincente (Gina Lollobrigida), a beautiful but hot-tempered artist, it's love at first sight and they quickly marry. The bloom is soon off the rose, however, and, five years later, Carter and Toni are about to finalize their divorce. However, just as the final paperwork is about to go through, Carter learns that he's up for a major promotion which would hinge on his being married. Carter is able to engineer a reconciliation with Toni with the help of his friend Richard Bramwell (Gig Young), a PR agent with the firm who hopes that a happy marriage will improve Carter's reputation. Since his separation from Toni, Carter has become known as something of a lothario, a reputation that the family-oriented company would like to avoid. But even though the couple patches things up, Richard has his work cut out for him when Toni announces that she'll be reenacting Lady Godiva's naked ride as part of a protest organized by an artists' group.

Audience Reviews for Strange Bedfellows


Typical bedroom comedy from the 60s, but great fun! Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida had fiery chemistry.

I really enjoyed this film. Granted I am a classics buff & well Gay or not, Rock Hudson is HOT. The chemistry between these two is great & I loved all the passionate fighting. It was a fun movie. If you like classic romantic comedies of the 60's you will love this film.

Two "very straight" old timers have to learn how to pass as a loving gay couple after falsing chalming same sex status to take advantage of an newly legislated tax law. This reminds me of a 2007 movie "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry" along the same lines>
