doris and emma.
I like to say that emma stone is the doris day of her generation. the reason of course is that doris day has that special something ..call it what you want..but it reflected a time.. way.. that meant something special. even when a younger generation came along and poked fun at her.. they pretty much liked her too. this movie and a number of others show an image of her and other people ..like her great co star and friend .. in a style that might be hokey..not real.. but likeable. I would like to say that doris day was the emma stone of her generation. of course that would be not a proper thing to say. besides..i have this evil feeling that they would come out of no where at beat hell out of me.. ah.. comedic beating from two people least likely to do it ..maybe there is still time for a special moment. no.. still .. the magic that a person can give on screen ..can always live on. that is the doris day effect.
A Wonderful Movie
Rock Hudson is at his comedic best in this movie. His medicine cabinet filled with vitamins, prescriptions and tonics is hilarious. The scene when Hudson is with his doctor and believes the telephone discussion he overhears means that he (Hudson) is going to croak is perfect. His visit to the cemetery to buy a lot from Paul Lynde is brilliantly funny (especially hen Lynde offers him green stamps after Hudson buys a lot) and every moment he is in a scene with Doris Day is pure joy. At the train station, when she is preparing to finally leave him (all due to huge misunderstandings) is evidence of the chemistry the two had together. I love her line: "All I feel for you is...PITY!" Tony Randall is an outstanding addition to this cast and his attempts to write a eulogy for Hudson's character (who is NOT dying, of course) is an ongoing gag in the movie. Randall's character drinks himself to near oblivion as he grieves for the impending death George (Hudson's character) but we know it's all a huge mistake and so it's all hilarious. There are many talented actors in this movie but Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall are outstanding. It's a simple movie but it is a joy to watch over and over.
Want to know where it was filmed?

Another reviewer was frustrated by not being able to find out locations. It has a backlot look to it, and it was filmed at the Universal City backlot, sure enough. Another thing that was obvious to me, when the men take off for the train station in separate cars, that street is Universal's Colonial Street, featured in about umpteen-zillion movies, from Harvey to the Naked Kiss. Other than that, this is a really cute and funny Day/ Hudson romp. I laughed out loud more than once! And Clint Walker is hilarious in a totally subtle way "WHY can't you wear SHOES, like everybody else?!" screams Rock Hudson, pointing at Walker's macho-man boots. Walker just gives him a smug look in reply. That, and watching him get out of his Euro sports car by sort of 'unfolding' his 6 foot-something frame...FUNNY! A relaxing, adorable film with wonderful wing man Tony Randall...I give it 4 twinklies.
This is my favorite of all the Day-Hudson movies, even though they are married so not so much titilatting dating sparks but plenty of other fun "drama" and a romantic laugh at every opportunity. Frustrating not to find the name of this Country Club nor a hint of shooting venue, at least what US city hosted this filming. All this is so easy to find for the original Thomas Crown Affair or many of the John Wayne films .... ?????
