'Pillow Talk' (1959)

The film, which yielded Day her only Academy Award nomination, probably produced one of the most iconic photos of Day used today. In the film, which was considered racy in 1959, Day is seduced by a man (Rock Hudson) whom she already knows through phone conversations but has never met. Concealing his identity, he tries to have a little fun, but ultimately falls for her.
