"Pillow Talk", 1959

        "Pillow Talk", written by Stanley Shapiro and Maurice Richlin, was a cleverly written script that was deemed racy in 1959. Day played Jan Morrow, a fashionable New York interior decorator, who is in conflict with the other half of her partyline, songwriter, Brad Allen (Rock Hudson), who annoyingly monopolises the phone singing love songs to a bevy of women. Frustrated, she seeks help from the phone company, who send out a female inspector who instantly becomes smitten with the handsome Mr Allen.

  Jonathan Forbes (Tony Randall) is meanwhile pursuing Jan, who although she's fond of him, has no romantic interest in him. Randall plays a rich executive who is also producing a Broadway musical being written by his friend, Brad Allen. Today, this sounds much too contrived, considering New York is populated by over eight million people! But then, this is Hollywood!
