Pillow Talk (Talkback with John Farr)
- Tue Aug 27
Tue Aug 27 @ 7:00 pm: Join us for a new series featuring outstanding classic films on select Tuesday evenings once a month. John Farr, Founder of the Playhouse and Creator of bestmoviesbyfarr.com, will introduce and give a short talk about each film before the lights go down. After screenings, guests are invited to join him for “Farr @The Bar” – drinks and casual conversation following the film in the Playhouse Cafe.
Director: Michael Gordon Run Time: 105 min. Format: Digital
Starring: Doris Day, Nick Adams, Rock Hudson, Thelma Ritter, Tony Randall
Notorious lothario Brad Allen (Hudson) and Jan Morrow (Day), a proper career woman, cross swords over a telephone party line. Doris views Rock as a sexual predator (which he is), while Hudson sees Day as stuck-up (there’s some truth in that too). What ensues is another battle of the sexes, which only serves to bring the two together. Meanwhile, Randall portrays Day’s frustrated, neurotic suitor with customary finesse.
The first and most successful pairing of leading man Rock Hudson and wholesome singing star Doris Day, Pillow Talk is colorful, lively and clever throughout. Both leads work beautifully together, with surprising comic flair and yes, sexual chemistry. The inimitable Tony Randall is worth the price of admission playing Rock’s neurotic, sad-sack buddy. Don’t miss this snappy, wildly entertaining romp!
Standard ticket price ($14 adult, $22 premium recliner, $12 senior, $12 child).
