The Pajama Game

Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(George Abbott, Stanley Donen, US 1957, 101 min., 35mm)

In Memoriam: Doris Day | Free Member Movie. This movie musical is also a rare Hollywood foray into a labor milieu, with factory scenes shot on the premises of the Weldon Pajama Co. and Doris Day heading up a grievance committee to petition for better working conditions and higher pay. Labor union rallies and the factory floor serve as the background for energetic Bob Fosse choreography, with Day falling in love with the shop superintendent and engaging in action decidedly not collective. Featuring songs by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (Damn Yankees), Day shines again in this timely workplace romp.

Free to George Eastman Museum Members.
