The Pajama Game

Directed by George Abbott & Stanley Donen

This Doris Day vehicle is a big budget adaptation of a runaway Broadway success. The film is a typical romantic story set against the backdrop of a pyjama factory where the workers are striving for better pay. The Pyjama Game is a rare example of a 1950s Hollywood film that offers some sympathy to the plight of women workers.
