Do Not Disturb

A strained star vehicle for Doris Day

“Do you know Rock Hudson?” Doris Day is asked in Ralph Levy’s laboured comedy of marital misunderstandings, pinpointing what’s missing from this strained star vehicle.

Instead the actress is saddled with Rod Taylor, a tough hunk of Aussie oak who looks visibly ill-at-ease playing the wool executive hubby she suspects of infidelity.

Set in London and Paris yet shot completely on the Fox back lot, Levy’s CinemaScope fossil seems like a relic from another age.

Doris retired from movies not long after, and not a moment too soon.
