Pillow Talk (UK) in May

News
Universal Pictures have announced the UK Blu-ray Disc release of Pillow Talk this May. Rock Hudson and Doris Day star in this romantic comedy that tells the charming story of Jan Morrow (Day), an uptight interior decorator who must share a party line with laid-back playboy Brad Allen (Hudson). But the real connection is made when the two meet and he begins wooing her with late-night calls - while pretending to be someone else.

Pillow Talk is one of the thirteen films to have been fully restored and digitally re-mastered from the original film elements as part of Universal's 100th Anniversary celebrations. It will be released on Limited Edition Digibook Blu-ray on 7 May (RRP £17.99), and standard Blu-ray on 28 May (RRP £14.99).

  • 44 page booklet including exclusive script pages, original posters, lobby cards, advertisements and upgraded photographs (LE Digitbook version only)
  • Back in Bed with Pillow Talk (22 mins)
  • Chemistry 101: The Film Duo of Doris Day and Rock Hudson (5 mins 15 secs)

About Dave Foster
Dave has been loitering the virtual halls of TDF for a decade now and the majority of that time has been spent as Editor of the Home Cinema section (formerly DVDTimes). He doesn't contribute reviews anywhere near as much as he once did (or indeed would like to) but when he does it will invariably be something in the anime or Asian film area.
