PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
In 1962 New York City, love blossoms between a playboy journalist and a feminist advice author.
Tony Randall, who plays publisher Theodore Banner, appeared with Rock Hudson and Doris Day in Pillow Talk (1959), Lover Come Back (1961), and Send Me No Flowers (1964). In all three films, Randall played Hudson's employer and nebbish sidekick (the role played by David Hyde Pierce in "Down With Love").
The place: New York City. The time: Now, 1962. And there's no time or place like it. If you've got a dream, this is the place to make that dream come true. That's why the soaring population of hopeful dreamers has just reached eight million people. ...
Barbara's book is shown being bought in a Russian bookstore. The book's cover is incorrectly written using the Latin alphabet, when it should be written using Cyrillic characters. Also the title is "Nyet Lyubof", which is grammatically not correct. It should be called "Nyet Lyubvi" (in reference to the title of the book in the movie) or "K chertu lyubof'" (in reference to the correct translation of the title, also the Russian title of the movie)
The film opens with the Regency logo, tinted pink. The ending credits are also pink.
The TV version distributed in the UK excludes most of the split-screen phone call, presumably for time and due to the potential interpretation of the cinematography.
