Rock Hudson in Pillow Talk (1959) and Lover Come Back (1961)By Michaela on Sep 28, 2016 From Love Letters to Old Hollywood
As much as I wanted to be scholarly while writing this piece, I soon discovered that it was pretty hard to do, strictly on a personal level.

It’s the original Rock Hudson Doris Day Rom-Com, with the seemingly perpetual split screen, to match the party line that constantly weaves its way through the story.
