Pillow Talk Review


Excellent
A very funny piece of Hollywood history, as a womanizing Rock and prim Doris share a party line, only to eventually fall in love when Rock invents a Texan persona to put the moves on his lovely neighbor. A wisecracking Tony Randall just about steals the show, but latter-day revelations about Hudson make some of his lines -- like when he accuses his alter-ego of being the kind of guy interested in recipes and his mother... Classic.

Operation Petticoat Review


Very Good
Pleasantly light comedy has Cary Grant and Tony Curtis on a pink WWII-era submarine with five women who tend to screw everything up. How the sub gets pink and how the chicks get aboard is all the fun. Hilarious for its oh-so-taboo treatment of things like underwear. Watch for Gavin The Love Boat MacLeod in a small role.

Come September Review


Good
Is there irony in Rock Hudson zipping about on a scooter in an attempt to protect the virtue of a gaggle of American girls being pursued by four horny guys? (Of note: Sandra Dee is one of the girls, and Bobby Darin is one of the guys, and this is where they met.) The convoluted romantic comedy has Hudson as a wealthy American who spends his Septembers at his plush Italian villa. He arrives early this year, only to find his business partner has turned the place into a hotel from October to August. A romance (with the lovely Gina Lollobrigida) ensues, and the younger kids prove they can find a little love in the sun amongst all the good times. Silly and unfulfilling, it's nonetheless a reasonably good time.
