Send Me No Flowers (DVD)
Send Me No Flowers sees Norman Jewison direct one of Hollywood's most famous screen teams, Doris Day and Rock Hudson. This was their third and final film together.
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 impending loss by downing martinis. Alarmed by her husband's 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! Send Me No Flowers also features Paul Lynde as a side-splitting cemetery plot salesman who 'loves people'.
