Note The first Rock Hudson/Doris Day movie tells the story of an odd couple who share a party line, eventually falling in love in spite of themselves. He's a womanizing cad, and she's a perky career gal with uncompromising moral standards and fine home furnishings. Academy Award Nominations: 5, including Best Actress--Doris Day. Academy Awards: Best Screenplay.
Plot Summary
Summary Due to a shortage of telephone trunk lines, songwriter Brad Allen and interior decorator Jan Morrow are forced to share a "party line." The two take an immediate dislike to each other since Jan considers Brad a playboy who ties up the line constantly making romantic overtures to a variety of women, while Brad considers Jan a sexually frustrated prude who has nothing better to do than snoop into his private affairs. But when Brad discovers how attractive the other half of his party line is, he devises a plan to seduce her by masquerading as a virtuous Texan.
