American romantic comedy film, released in 1959, that features the first on-screen pairing of actors Rock Hudson and Doris Day. Day earned her sole Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of Jan Morrow, a successful, self-reliant urban career woman whose quiet, secure life is turned upside down when she has to share a “party line” (shared phone line) with the talented composer and playboy Brad Allen (played by Rock Hudson). Problems arise when Allen ties up the line with calls to his many girlfriends—calls that Morrow is, of course, party to.

(USA, 1959 1hr 47min)
