Doris Day (scoring her only Oscar nomination) plays a single New York interior decorator sharing a telephone party line (remember them?) with a bachelor composer (Rock Hudson). The playboy’s over active social life tends to hog the phone line, which leads to mutual loathing. The romantic comedy won an Oscar for Original Story and Screenplay beating out such heavyweights as Wild Strawberries and North By Northwest. Tony Randall and Thelma Ritter provide droll comic support for Day and Hudson who were successfully teamed up for two more romps. (1959) 105 MIN. (NR) (UNIVERSAL)
