Pillow Talk ★★★½

It's always fun to see what films do with their newfound freedom as the censorship code got more and more lax, and late 1950s films are so fascinating in the ways they explored sex and other previously censored themes. (Unfortunately, it also allowed way more obvious homophobia to creep in, as seen in this film.)

Pillow Talk is silly, but it's just so much pure FUN that I didn't even care. Rock Hudson and Doris Day are two of the most charismatic Classic Hollywood actors, and I had a great time watching them on screen for 100 minutes.
