Playboy songwriter Brad Allen's (Rock Hudson) succession of romances annoys his neighbor, interior designer Jan Morrow (Doris Day), who shares a telephone party line with him and hears all his breezy routines. After Jan unsuccessfully lodges a complaint against him, Brad sets about to seduce her in the guise of a sincere and upstanding Texas rancher. When mutual friend Jonathan (Tony Randall) discovers that his best friend is moving in on the girl he desires, however, sparks fly.

Audience Reviews for Pillow Talk

  • Feb 05, 2014
    The interplay between Hudson and Day has been discussed in terms of what we now know about Hudson's sexuality but I don't think it particularly matters. The two have wonderful chemistry here and that famous split screen phone call is an example of the great camera work.

    A rakish bachelor shares a party line with a prudish single woman. Shallow and farcical, <i>Pillow Talk</i> rests wholly on the assumption that its audience will find Rock Hudson and Doris Day sufficiently charming that they could perform whatever script and tell whatever story and the audience will still find them attractive. Unfortunately for the film, I find them both attractive but cannot stand a story that is so contrived and ridiculous that it insults my intelligence and over-estimates its own charm. Overall, this film proves that fluff is as old as cinema itself.

    Romantic comedy about a couple who haven't met but share a telephone line. If you like Shop Around The Corner, You've Got Mail, How To Lose A Guy In 10 days then you will like this movie.

    I don't think Doris Day and Rock Hudson have too much chemistry in the conventional sense, but it certainly is pleasurable watching them squabble. This movie has just the right amount of retro and cheese to make it delightful.
