Send Me No Flowers is to be released on DVD starring one of Hollywood’s most famous screen teams, Doris Day and Rock Hudson, as a perky housewife and her hypochondriac husband – along with Tony Randall in this, their third and final film together, directed by Norman Jewison (The Cincinnati Kid, The Thomas Crown Affair).
The title tune to this 1964 American comedy is sung by Doris Day and was written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach. They were awarded the 2011 Gershwin Prize for Popular Song bestowed by the Library of Congress.
Doris Day’s costumes were designed by Academy Award winner for Costume Design Jean Louis (who’s other works include Marilyn Monroe’s sheer, sparkling gown she wore to sing “Happy Birthday, Mr President” to John F. Kennedy). For her role in Send Me No Flowers, Day won the 1965 Laurel Award for Comedy Performance.
Hudson is hilarious as an obsessed hypochondriac who mistakenly overhears his doctor discussing the impending death of a patient. Believing the poor victim is himself, Hudson elicits the help of his friend and neighbour, Tony Randall, to find a new husband for his soon-to-be- widowed wife. Randall, unfortunately, isn’t much help as he deals with his upcoming loss by swigging martinis. Alarmed by her husband’s increasingly strange behaviour, Day becomes even more frustrated when an old paramour (Clint Walker) shows up at their country club and Hudson encourages his attentions towards her! The film also features Paul Lynde as a side-splitting cemetery plot salesman who “loves people.”
