Editor's Note
Pajamas, love, singing, and labor union vs. management conflicts create the colorful basis of THE PAJAMA GAME, based on the Broadway musical. Chock-full of musical numbers and romantic subplots, the real story is the seven-and-a-half-cents-per-hour raise the pajama factory workers are demanding to keep their salaries comparable with other garment workers' pay. Sid (John Raitt), the new superintendent of the factory, pushes both himself and the workers hard in order to prove himself to the owner, but a visit by the union grievances committee in the form of lovely but tough Babe (Doris Day) brings out his softer, romantic side. Despite their love, Babe warns Sid that the union-management turmoil will cause problems for them too, and Sid has to juggle his job, his heart, and his conscience to find a solution that will solve everything.

Plot Summary
Labor representative Babe and pajama-factory superintendent Sid lock horns in THE PAJAMA GAME over a pay raise demanded by the factory workers. The sparks they strike soon start fires of romance despite their antagonistic positions at work. When Sid is forced to fire Babe during a work slowdown, their problems seem insurmountable, but Sid thinks he can find the key to the solution. Every character seems to have his or her own song in this film based on the Broadway musical; Sid and Babe's "There Once Was a Man" is especially engaging.
