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. ...
The water cooler in the dry cleaner's shop has a plastic bottle. In 1962, the bottle would have been made of glass.
The ending credits include an extra scene with Renee & Ewan singing a duet and one with David Hyde Pierce and Sarah Paulson.
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.
