Doris and Rock, c. 1980s

Doris Day and Rock Hudson became fast friends on the first day of shooting Pillow Talk (and would remain so until his death in 1985). Shortly thereafter they soon came up with nicknames for each other. He became Ernie; she was either Eunice or Maude. In the course of shooting, Day adopted Hudson’s habit of doing crossword puzzles during downtime on the set. She, in turn, wanted to teach him how to play tennis, but he didn’t take her up on the offer. Hudson later recalled, “They had to add a week on to the shooting schedule because we could not stop laughing I used to think about terrible things, to try not to laugh, but I think that’s the wonderful part about when you see two people on the screen—if you like them, if they like each other, and you sense that they like each other.”

I think the enemy of [film] is of course reality, and films are best when they manage poetry by reducing the element of reality and introducing something which is the invention of the filmmaker.
