Send Me No Flowers
Rock Hudson ■ Doris Day
At one of his many visits to his doctor, hypochondriac George Kimball mistakes a dying man's diagnosis for his own and believes he only has about two more weeks to live. Wanting to take care of his wife Judy, he doesn't tell her and tries to find her a new husband. When he finally does tell her, she quickly finds out he's not dying at all (while he doesn't) and she believes it's just a lame excuse to hide an affair, so she decides to leave him.
This movie really is a comedy of errors. Everyone is assuming They know the truth, when in fact no one does!
Rock and Doris at their comedic best!
Of the three films Doris Day and Rock Hudson made together I think this one is my favorite.
This movie is lightweight, enjoyable, and perfect for curling up and watching on a day that you want to laugh but not think overly hard.
The moral of this story: Never assume anything... except that Doris and Rock will deliver a fun and funny story.
Rock Hudson ... George
Doris Day ... Judy
Tony Randall ... Arnold
Paul Lynde ... Mr. Akins
Hal March ... Winston Burr
Edward Andrews ... Dr. Morrissey

George Kimball: When a man's wife thinks he's having an affair, how can he convince her he's not?
Arnold Nash: He can't.
George Kimball: But I'm not having one!
Arnold Nash: Doesn't make any difference.
George Kimball: Isn't a man innocent until proven guilty?
Arnold Nash: Look, you're dealing with your wife. You can forget the Constitution.
Judy: When he tells me he's dying and he doesn't DIE... wouldn't he know that I'd get SUSPICIOUS?
