Pajama Game, The (DVD)
This 1957 version of the Tony-winning Pajama Game is one of the finest film adaptations of a hit Broadway musical. The story is simple enough: Babe Williams, the head of a pajama company's grievance committee, falls for an exec--the new superintendent--Sid Sorokin (John Raitt). Doris Day, as Babe, has never been so efficiently cute. Raitt starred in the Broadway version, as did much of the film's cast (Day replaced original stage star Janis Paige). The Pajama Game is filled with recognizable, classic songs, done so well and danced so athletically that this musical can engage an action-film fan. Bob Fosse's trademark choreography shines.
Check out two numbers danced by the late, underused, and underrated Carol Haney, who performs amazing feats for "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway." Both Day and Raitt deliver lovely renditions of "Hey There." They're also supported by a great cast that includes, in addition to Haney, a slyly coy Reta Shaw and a dynamic Eddie Foy Jr. --N.F.

More than met met expectations and memories. Just wonderful and one to be re-watched or just listened to as so much great music! Read morePublished 10 months ago by Jan M. Wildeman
Silly, boring in spots, but a lot of fun for the most part, with some great Bob Fosse choreography, and some interesting
set design and lighting. Good use of neon. Read more
Very seldom seen Doris Day film. This one is a musical in color. Unusual and perhaps unattractive to watch because it is set in a shirt & pajama-making factory. Read morePublished on Feb. 24 2004 by James P. McDonald
This amazing dvd is wonderful, put the overly peppy and smiley Doris Day is atrocious! Why could they not have put Janis Paige-The original broadway Babe- in the picture!Published on Feb. 8 2004
The pajama factory setting is a little awkward and it doesn't really jive with the spirited song and dance numbers, which are constatly splendid. Read morePublished on Nov. 19 2003 by Guy De Federicis
I can't understand why this DVD doesn't rate a total 5 stars here! It's one of the best DVDs I have because it looks absolutely dazzling, the songs are great, the plot is silly -... Read morePublished on Sept. 5 2003 by Coleen
Despite having most the players from the Tony-winning Broadway musical intact, the reason to watch the movie-version of "The Pajama Game" is Doris Day. Read morePublished on July 19 2003 by jon sieruga
It's a really bad plot, really thin characters, and mostly (except for the Fosse numbers), unimaginative choreography. But it's got great music and some personable stars.Published on July 2 2003
This musical is full of great music and dance. The only thing I didn't like was the use of "water colors" versus "technicolor". Read morePublished on Dec 27 2002 by Randy Fernandez
