Storyline

Joan Howell, a young and pretty maid-for-hire, meets and begins dating wealthy New York City businessman Tom Milford. Embarrassed about bringing him back to her tiny apartment that she shares with her roommate Audrey, Joan brings Tom over to a fancy apartment that she cleans on a daily basis not knowing that it's his place. Tom plays along with the charade despite not knowing who Joan really is, while she tries to tidy up Tom's place not knowing who he really is. Written by Matthew Patay

A sorry substitute for "Pillow Talk"...
24 August 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Sandra Dee manages to dress exquisitely and take taxis all around New York City despite working as an out-call maid who has so little money she's forced to live in a cramped hovel with a girl roommate. But no matter. She meets eligible publishing magnate Bobby Darin and temporarily takes over an absentee client's bachelor pad as a front for her residence. The not-so-hilarious catch is: it's Darin's apartment. Tepid bedroom-comedy laden with misunderstandings and innuendo. Dee, making herself to home in Darin's swinging pad, actually manages to find bubble bath in his bathroom, while he--going along with her ruse--impersonates an interior decorator! A few funny moments (Darin, in his boxer shorts, causing a scene outside a pay phone; two nosy bartenders gossiping like sisters on the job) cannot compensate for an extremely thin screenplay by David R. Schwartz (working from Norman Barasch and Carroll Moore's story), which plays like third-rate Hudson & Day. *1/2 from ****
