Lover Come Back (1961)

Notes: 6/9/11
Ann B. Davis plays Doris Day's secretary.
'Just a touch' of more bourbon. Jack Oakie as Southern Mr. Miller.
Edie Adams has a a lot of fun as a wannabe actress.
The hats are ridiculous. At the beach Doris wears what looks like a party hat.
Great chemistry between Doris Day and Rock Hudson.
Tony Randall is very funny in support. Drunk on Vip.
If only everyone was as cute as Doris and Rock.

Review: B
Rock Hudson-Doris Day sex comedy sparkles with fun dialogue and cute 60s set pieces. Rock and Doris are advertising agents competing for a product that doesn't actually exist. Colorful and energetic with a fine supporting cast, including Tony Randall in a very funny performance. Best parts are the hilarious ways the screenplay touches upon taboo subjects like homosexuality and drug use.
