Doris was definitely a platinum blond in this film! I swing between this and Pillow Talk as being my favourite Doris/Rock film... this week LCB is winning. :)

I'd love to see your Doris and Rock pictures, can you share them with us?
of course I would like nothing else but to share them...if only I could.
I go to download attachments & it does not work.So I guess I will try photobucket.Wish me luck..

As you can see, I stuck in my two cents. Glad the film got recognition by the prestigious NY Times.
Like Irene Dunne done.

Im dying to see this film -- In film class when we finished pillow talk, my teacher said that this movie was identical to pillow talk? I have yet to see it, but was wondering if it was quite the same? Im going to buy it on ebay!

I wouldn't say it was identical - it's a completely different story but because it has the three main stars it has a similar feel, I suppose.

Oh, wow, I love that first picture. Thanks for posting it, Bryan. I've never seen it before. I really enjoy seeing the behind-the-scenes photos - makes it all seem a little more real.

Your video is great too - loved seeing all the screen caps.

Lover Come Back probably my favourite Doris film and I think it's a tiny bit better than Pillow Talk. Whilst Pillow Talk is iconic because it was the first, Lover Come Back is where the team perfected their craft. It's a near perfect film for me.

Love, love, love ....

The candid B & W shots, especially the dramatic shot of Delbert Mann directing Doris and Rock on the beach. Doris seems to be enjoying herself immensely and I love the shot of them breaking up with laughter. Their brand of cinematic chemistry cannot be bought or manufactured.

I give LCB slightly higher marks over PT, but it's a close call. PT has the important distinction of being a landmark film in Doris' career; it reinvented her into a sexy, sophisticated leading lady and it propelled her into the rarefied realm of superstardom. It also triggered her return to boxoffice glory where she remained for several years. It was exactly the kind of watershed film that she needed at the time.

But LCB holds up slightly better in my opinion. The satiric swipes at Madison Avenue and media advertising are just as topical today as they were nearly 50 (!) years ago. The NY Times recently showcased LCB as a top tier romantic comedy by the way. While the plot resembles PT and the leading players are basically repeating the same characters but with different names and job titles, the sharp writing and pitch perfect comic timing among all three of the leading actors is a half step above what they delivered in PT.

That alone is remarkable because your second time up to bat after hitting a homerun is rarely a grand slam.

I give Doris, Rock, Tony, the writers and Delbert Mann a lot of credit for making a followup film that exceeded expectations by a mile.

As I was watching LCB the other day, I noticed the woman in the elevator as Rock exits (first scene of workplace) and said to myself...that seems like an outfit Doris would wear and I paused the movie. Then I had a good look at the lady ...and to me it really looks like Doris Day!!! Something about that smile...even for a fraction of a second! Unfortunately, (being a student on campus I don't own a TV) through the laptop screen I cannot zoom to see if it's actually her or not. Would anybody be willing to zoom in to see if it's her or not?

But the laugh! Seemingly trivial story, and how much magic in it! Brilliant Rock Hudson, Tony Randall wonderful and delightful Doris :D Reveled in every moment, I would recommend to anyone :D Doris appeared at all these wonderful costumes, dazzling beauty and class, and oh those legs dream :D Rock is one of the most handsome actors, and that his smile ah :D 10/10 :D Now, no production of such films and there is no such actors :( Injury :( But always we return to this beautiful movie and wonderful actors, they are immortal :D
I LOVE YOU DORIS♥

Watched the entire film tonight on Youtube and so much enjoyed again. What a wonderful pair Doris and Rock were and how attractive they were. They made comedy look so natural and easy and Doris in all the wonderful Irene clothes- the opening outfit is one of my all time favorites of her screen clothes.

Take a trip back into time with screening of
Lover Come Back at the Revue Cinema


Bloor West Villager
Before Mad Men’s Don Draper, there was Jerry Webster. And arch rival Carol Templeton. They’re two Madison Avenue account execs played by Rock Hudson and Doris Day in the 1961 film Lover Come Back.

The Revue Cinema presents the film on Thursday, Jan. 23, and welcomes guest expert Terry O’Reilly to discuss the ad business, the Doris Day period piece and AMC’s Mad Men. The event starts at 7 p.m.

O’Reilly, a 30-year veteran of the industry, hosts the CBC radio program ‘Under the Influence’ which explores many subjects, including the history of advertising, present-day trends, branding, successful campaigns, marketing tactics, women in advertising and how the industry is portrayed in film and on TV.

“A big part of that film for me is how it captures New York in a little bit of amber: the way Doris Day dresses, the cars, the Technicolor of it. There’s a lot of it that I like,” O’Reilly said of the film in a statement. “It’s not as refined, not as art-directed as Mad Men, but it was made in that era, so it captured that era.”

To get into a 1960s Madison Avenue mood, the Revue will be serving martinis and manhattans from the cash bar. Event sponsors, fashion retailers Fresh Collective (401 Roncesvalles Ave.) and Doll Factory by Damzels (394 Roncesvalles Ave.), will provide Doris Day-style fashions to evoke the era as well as door prizes.

The event starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $10 for members, seniors and Revue StarCard holders; $13 for general admission. Buy tickets through the Revue website, http://www.revuecinema.ca

The Revue Cinema, a not-for-profit community-run theatre, is located at 400 Roncesvalles Ave.

Wouldn't that be great to see? :) - Thursday, Jan. 23, if you live in Toronto!

Of the 3 Doris and Rock films this is my favorite(although I really do love them all)

Something that kind of annoys me is how people say she was always playing the part of a girl "protecting her virginity". I have yet to watch a film and have that thought run through my mind, I always thought for instance in LCM that she was just a little more selective with who she went to bed with. She wasn't someone who was interested in one night stands. A quality I believe should be exercised a little more in today's world. :D

I listened to the song "Should I Surrender" that Doris sings in this film and it clearly indicates her wish to sleep with Jerry Webster(Rock). The song is beautiful on it's own and has a wonderful melody. It is a quiet and reflective moment in the film just preceding all the hijinks and action. The audience is with Doris qall the way.

Lover Come Back will always be a treasured memory and I look forward to seeing it again.

The banner of Doris and Rock prompted me to listen to the song.
