Send Me No Flowers

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Probably the best of the Doris Day/Rock Hudson vehicles, extracting a surprising amount of black (though sugar-coated) comedy out of the situation in which hypochondriac Rock, mistakenly believing he is dying, thoughtfully tries to arrange a remarriage for his widow-to-be with an old flame (Walker); whereupon she, sniffing out self-interest, suspects an attempt to cover up an affair of his own. Nicely set in a pastel-coloured suburban dreamworld, but the ineradicable blandness gets you down in the end.
