Workers in a pajama factory fight to get a 7 1/2 cent raise!
One of the truly unsung musicals of the 1950s, with a remarkably convincing performance from Doris Day, an impressive movie debut by John Raitt and wonderful choreography by Bob Fosse.
Pajama Game is probably one of the two most successful musical movies that Warner Bros produced, the other, of course, also starring Doris Day: "Calamity Jane", which reversed the order of Adler and Ross's wonderful creation by moving to the theatrical stage after the movie was made.
Stanley Donen and George Abbot have produced and directed a total joy of a movie, creating a believable factory environment and giving the union demands for a pay rise the full strength.
Carol Haney (from the record breaking Broadway production) makes a wonderful front office employee and with her number "Steam Heat" gives Fosse's choreographic skills full rein!
Truly a joy of a movie, wonderfully photographed in magical colours and in excellently framed CinemaScope. How hard to think this film has been overlooked for so long. Definitely a must for any fan of musical movies and it warrants repeated viewing on a regular basis.
A gem just waiting to be rediscovered.
