70th Anniversary screening of this Doris Day Classic. When telephone lines are crossed, complete strangers meet and fall in love. Split screen sequences and songs spice up this light romantic comedy starring Doris Day and Rock Hudson.
When Jan Morrow, an uptight interior decorator, is forced to share a party line with carefree playboy Brad Allen, there’s no connection between them. But when the two accidentally meet, the smitten Brad pretends to be a wealthy Texan, wooing Jan with seductive late-night calls. Their phone line is sizzling until Jan discovers her caller’s true identity and calls his bluff.
The first and the best of the three romantic comedies Doris Day made with Rock Hudson at Universal offers a good case of deconstructing the stars’ respective screen images.Emanuel Levy
