L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 20: 1954 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK:FAVORITES & "PILLOW TALK"

MY SELECTION NO. 20 FOR "BEST MOVIES OF THE FIFTIES" IS "PILLOW TALK"
STARRING "DORIS DAY", "ROCK HUDSON", AND TONY RANDALL!!




Pillow Talk is a 1959 Eastmancolor romantic comedy film in CinemaScope directed by Michael Gordon. It features Rock Hudson, Doris Day, Tony Randall, Thelma Ritter and Nick Adams. The film was written by Russell Rouse, Maurice Richlin, Stanley Shapiro and Clarence Greene. It tells the story of Jan Marrow (Day), an interior decorator and Brad Allen (Hudson), a womanizing composer/bachelor, both of whom share a telephone party line. When she unsuccessfully files a complaint on him for constantly using the line to woo his conquests, Brad decides to take a chance on Jan by masquerading as a Texas rancher, resulting in the two falling in love. The scheme seems to work until Brad's mutual friend and Jan's client Jonathan Forbes (Randall) finds out about this, causing a love triangle in the process. The film won the Academy Award for Best Writing (Original Screenplay), and was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Doris Day), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Thelma Ritter), Best Art Direction-Set Decoration, Color (Richard H. Riedel, Russell A. Gausman, Ruby R. Levitt) and Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture. In 2009, it was entered into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant and preserved.[3]
