    For my money, "Teacher's Pet" is one of Doris Day's best, and Clark Gable is no slouch in it, either. The film sparkles with wit and style, plus the title song and Mamie Van Dorn's "The Girl Who Invented Rock and Roll" (as well as Day's reprise of the number) are definite highlights. I loved this movie as a kid, and now--as a freelance writer who contributes newspaper and online articles--I can relate to it all the more. On the Saturday prior to what is now known as 9/11, I attended a showing of "Teacher's Pet" in Los Angeles. Among the celebrities present were Judy Lewis, daughter of Clark Gable and Loretta Young. After the film I spoke briefly to Ms. Lewis, telling her how much I appreciated her book about her parentage and growing up in Hollywood, and she was very kind and gracious. But I received just as big a thrill when I struck up a conversation with a retired journalist who had been one of the extras on the newspaper set of "Teacher's Pet." He told me about how much the makers of the film had worked toward authenticity, and I think it shows in the finished product. "Teacher's Pet" is not only a delightful comedy, but also a still-relevant primer for what it takes to be a responsible member of the media.

    Este filme eu considero uns dos melhores filmes que ele fez na dcada de 50. Ele e a Doris Day esto excelente. O filme merece 10 estrelas por sua qualidade.

    A fun movie, one of Clark Gable's better later efforts. Doris Day is well cast and does a fine job. They work surprisingly well together. Gig Young steals the show though, in a supporting role. Very entertaining.

  • Version played on TCM different from the DVD?

    I love this movie, and I've seen it several times on DVD. It seems that the version on TCM includes more material or a different introduction. Can this be true?

  • There should have been more Day & Gable

    Some may complain this film is a bit long, and it does drag in parts, but there are so many laughs and an extremely interesting story in this romantic comedy that one tends to forgive writers Fay Kanin and Michael Kanin for forgetting that "ads go for $25 an inch. and you've just wasted $300."Maybe a little less verbosity would have gotten them the Oscar they were nominated for. After all, Michael Kanin's Oscar win was for Woman of the Year - six minutes shorter.But, the film was really funny as Gable and Day went at it - she not knowing that he was the very man she hated. Like Gable, I was also attracted to Day's bodacious booty. I never recalled that she had such a fine figure. Funny and hot. What a combination.Not only did the two stars give us a show, but Gig Young turned in a supporting performance that was so good that it got him an Oscar nomination.I would be remiss if I left out mention of the lovely Mamie Van Doren, who had a bodacious booty of her own.Excellent film on the subject of journalism.

    This is one of Clark Gable's best performances late in his career. He gives a very good comedic performance in Teacher's Pet. Doris Day is also very good playing an intelligent, confident career woman.
