I believe "The Pajama Game" is the quintessential 1950s musical comedy. Although the film cut a few of the songs from the Broadway version, there were none added, so what is seen is a very faithful version of the source material. Another bonus with the film is that much of the Broadway cast is featured in the movie version.
Doris Day, is as usual, wonderful, as is a young Bob Fosse's choreography. The "Steam Heat" and "Once A Year Day" numbers are highlights.
The DVD features a cut number written for the movie. It is quite good, but it is also understandable why they didn't use it, in that it would have slowed the momentum of the film had it been used.
All in all a very entertaining film.
