Send Me No Flowers
US Release Date: 14 October 1964

This is the third and final movie made by Hollywood’s golden couple Rock Hudson and Doris Day. This time Rock plays a hypochondriac (George) who misunderstands his doctor and believes he is a dying man. Wanting to take care of his wife’s (Judy) future he doesn’t tell her the news. He instead secretly searches for a suitable replacement husband. George’s suspicious behaviour leaves his wife suspecting he is hiding an affair. She then leaves him. On the whole this is a fun film. On saying that unlike the previous pictures made by Day-Hudson this one starts to feels a little jaded by its end. The movie features the title theme song which was written by pop maestros Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
