The Froth of ’59: “Pillow Talk”

The old screwball comedies were not always funny, but were still worth watching for their interesting plots.  Such is the case with a late screwball comedy—Pillow Talk (1959)—except for the happy fact that this Doris Day-Rock Hudson effort manages to become funny as it goes along.

Assuredly hormones get secreted in the film, and watch out for the free-floating corruption!  (Hudson plays a horndog and Thelma Ritter plays a lush.)
