This is the best set in the world. What greater romantic comedies that Rock Hudson, Doris Day and Tony Randall. This set has the three movies they made together. These three movies get all thumbs up!!!!

"I am a huge fan of Doris and Rock's movies, so I was instantly attracted to this good deal. I do not regret my purchase one bit. First, about the packaging.I have never seen such attractive packaging for classic movies before. The box opens up and you find a separate box containing the discs. It folds out and you are welcomed with a full photo from Pillow Talk. Then it folds open again and reveals the dvds. There is a pocket for the Doris Day music cd, which contains eight songs from her movies, a pocket for Pillow Talk, with a scene from Pillow Talk on the background of the pocket, a pocket for Lover Come Back with a scene as well, and also Send Me No Flowers. The pictures are vivid and romantic, really portraying the type of movies Doris and Rock were known for. The only gripe I really have, is that there are no keep cases (the boxes you usually buy dvd's in), only the pockets so extra care has to be given so that they don't get scratched. Now onto the dvd's themselves.No changes have been made to the dvd's other than that Lover Come Back is new to dvd. I am still not crazy about the quality of the picture, being that it is a dvd. However, I do appreciate that the movies are seen in widescreen, which in my opinion gives it the edge of the vhs versions. Looking at the overall presentation, this collector's set is the best dvd deal I have seen in a long time. The attractive, unusual packaging, the fact that you get three dvd's and a cd for just over $20 cannot be beat. Grab this up while you can, it will make a great addition to anyone's dvd collection young or old."

"Rock Hudson, Doris Day and Tony Randall made a memorable team in this trilogy of romantic comedies made between 1959 and 1964. Day and Hudson always played the (would-be) lovers; Randall was always the spare-part/best friend, a role that suited him.
In Pillow Talk, the best of the series, Day is a New York designer forced to share a party-line with womanizer Hudson. He takes a shine to her, and poses as a Texas rancher to try and woo her. Witty stuff, brilliantly scripted and acted, not forgetting Thelma Ritter, who won an Oscar for her hilarious performance as Day's drunken maid.
Lover Come Back hasn't aged quite as well, but it too is a witty and entertaining vehicle for the trio. The story is a variation of the first film.
Send Me No Flowers is different in tone. This time, Day and Hudson are married; he's a hypochondriac who thinks he has only a few weeks to live, and tries to make the best of the rest of his life without her finding out. Tends to get panned by critics, but it's a funny, engaging film."
Nothing better than watching Doris Day and Rock Hudson

"We all gathered around the family TV to watch a wholesome family movie that was clean, funny, entertaining and just plain fun. Both my teen daughters found the movie entertaining. I'm so glad I bought the DVD set because all three movies were great, the music CD was wonderful, and the packaging was beautiful. Worth every penny spent for several evenings of delightul fun."
