Sunday In New York/ A Pajama Party with Donna

I'm joining some real friends in a
 virtual pajama party this evening.
To see our group, visit our host

I'll be watching this, even though
 I just watched it on Sunday.
I love this comedy for many reasons,
 one of which is the brother's apartment. 
The tiny kitchen tucked below the bedroom 
up the spiral stairs...
The double tiered shutters to close 
at night for privacy...
The scenes around New York mean 
so much more to me 
now that my kids live there and I visit 
as often as I can, learning the rhythm and
the excitement of the city.
This is a light hearted ROM/COM romp that 
I have watched forever it seems.
I was 10 when it came out, 
so of course I did not see it in the theater
 but as soon as it hit tv, I was there.

I'll be watching curled up in the den, 
on the floral sofa in very mismatched pj's
 and sipping..let's see, I'll be sipping either 
some decaf coffee heavily laced with
peppermint mocha creamer,or some Chariot Gypsy wine.
Depends on how the day goes I suppose.
Munching? The only sweets in the house at the
moment are Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses.
Here is the link to the trailer.
Please check it out! 

Eileen Tyler (Fonda) is twenty-two years old and is 
suffering from her breakup with Russ (Robert Culp).

She comes to New York to visit her brother Adam (Robertson), who is an airline pilot. Eileen confides to her brother that she thinks she may be the only 22-year-old virgin left in the world. Adam assures her that sex is not what all men look for and insists he hasn't slept around. Of course, Adam is lying and is in hot pursuit of a tryst with his occasional girlfriend Mona. However, Adam's date with Mona has a series of job related interruptions. Meanwhile, Eileen decides to see if she can have some fun for herself in New York, and seems to find the perfect candidate in Mike (Taylor), a man she meets on the bus. But things get complicated when Russ pops in with a proposal and a mistaken assumption.

If by chance you decide to watch, and like it,
also check out Any Wednesday.
Another Fonda romp.

Hey there!
It sure has been a while, I know, but life has been crazy, to say the least! A pajama can't beat that! Enjoy your movie...sounds like a keeper!

I watched the trailer and it looks like a fun movie. I think the movies of the early 60's time frame are so funny....they always imply so much innocence (just like TV when Rob and Laura Petrie slept in separate beds). Anyway....I enjoyed the review and although I won't be able to watch tonight I will put it on my list.
Enjoy the movie (again)!

Enjoy!! I love those old movies!!

I love this movie because I love NYC! And love the brother's apartment, too. But I absolutely adore "Any Wednesday". Love when she opens the closet door and all the balloons come out! My husband gave me 41 balloons on my 41st birthday because I love this movie.

Carole said...

Sounds like a good movie...wish I had time to watch one.

Fun seeing streets of NYC and trying to recognize them.

Hey Z
Loved sharing movies with you... I've seen this one many times and love it. I used to have a crush on Cliff Robertson... ha.

I have been following you for a while now. I love your blog! Thanks for taking me back to New York! I used to travel there about five times a year!

I also love that you are an Annie Hall girl!

It was very nice to meet you at Donna's party!

As a New Yorker I am disappointed in myself for not knowing this movie existed. I'm going to search Netflix for it right now!
