Love is in the air ... and everywhere!

February 26   Pillow Talk (1959) 1 hr 42 min.

In New York, interior decorator Jan Morrow (Doris Day) and the wolf composer Brad Allen (Rock Hudson) share a party line, but Brad keeps it busy most of the time flirting with his girlfriends. They don’t know each other, but Jan hates Brad as she needs the phone for her business and can’t use it. Jan’s wealthy client Jonathan Forbes (Tony Randall) woos her, and happens to be Brad’s best friend. When Brad meets Jan by chance in a restaurant, he poses as a naive tourist from Texas named Rex Stetson and seduces her. But Jonathan hires a private eye to find who Rex Stetson is…

Won an Oscar for Best Screenplay, and was nominated for 4 more (including Doris Day for Best Actress). Rock Hudson turned down his part three times, thinking the script "too risqué". At the diner, after Jonathan slaps Jan, a truck driver punches him in the jaw. The punch was practised many times and Randall was assured he’d not be hit—but during filming, he was knocked unconscious.
