Rock Hudson and Doris DayYou really should know who HUDSON AND DAY are! Rock Hudson (1925-1985), born Roy Harold Scherer Jr., and Doris Day (1924-Present), born Doris Mary Ann Von Kappelhoff, made three light-hearted and fun romantic comedies together.

Pillow Talk (1959)A fine place to start is by viewing: Pillow Talk (1959)? Doris plays Jan Morrow and Rock plays Brad Allen who share the same "party line". A great laugh and some very funny scenes. See that and watch them in the next two films.

Lover Come Back (1961) Rock and Doris play rival advertising agents in this fun romantic comedy
Send Me No Flowers (1964) Rock plays a man who thinks he is dying but isn't and tries to find a new husband for his wife.
