Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
The second of their signature trio of romantic comedies, Lover Come Back (1961) mixes the sexual sparring between Doris Day's ethical career woman Carol and Rock Hudson's scheming Lothario Jerry with a lightly humorous satire of the advertising business. Taking on the ultimate 1950s profession, and 1950s sexual mores, Jerry's efforts to outwit "undersexed" (but divinely dressed) business competitor Carol with an accidentally successful ad campaign for non-existent product VIP and an identity subterfuge send up both consumer desire and male-female sex roles. As with Pillow Talk (1959), the 1980s revelation of Hudson's sexuality adds an extra edge to Jerry's feigned sexual innocence and fears of impotence (not to mention his walk through a lobby wearing only a woman's fur coat), but the joke's already on the notion that men always pursue It and women shouldn't, as Day muses in song, "Surrender." Tony Randall's worthless advertising scion is the ultimate example of both corporate vacuity and privileged weakness, as he unknowingly sets Jerry's VIP campaign in motion to assert his negligible power. Snappily directed by Delbert Mann, Lover Come Back became another Day-Hudson hit, and earned an Oscar nomination for Stanley Shapiro and Paul Henning's screenplay.

    Cute and Charming!

    Lover Come Back is my second favorite movie that Doris Day and Rock Hudson made together, Pillow Talk is my #1 favorite but I also really liked Lover Come Back and found it charming and witty and they were both great and so was Tony Randall.

    Great Fun for a weekend!

    As a classic movie buff, I stumbled across this gem on TCM one night and was absolutely hooked. Although Pillow Talk is the more celebrated and most well known of the Doris Day/Rock Hudson collaberations, Lover Come Back is my favorite. Doris Day plays the kind of wholesome role that made her famous, this time in the character of a Madison Ave. advertising executive. And of course her archrival happens to be the womanizing lush Rock Hudson. The laughs just don't stop as Hudson leads and unknowing and unsuspecting Day to fall in love with him, all the while, manipulating the advertising situation from the inside. But what he didn't count on is falling in love with the virtuous beauty. A stellar supporting cast and surprise ending make this one of those pieces of Hollywood ''fluff'' perfect for a long weekend or just an evening when you don't want to think too hard.
