VERY GOOD 1957 romantic musical comedy with Doris Day (at in her mid 30's) really lighting up the screen.
John Raitt (who I just learned is father of talented singer Bonnie Raitt) is great in male lead, especially in the duet (with himself) .
Fun to see Barbara Nichols again, too.
And there is a terrific ending sequence featuring Bob Fosse choreography.
Interesting, that the film includes a 'work slowdown' in pajama maker workers labor struggle against owner.

All is not well at the Sleep-Tite pyjama factory as militant union members go toe-to-toe with the company's hardheaded management over a contentious 7½ cent raise. But things get even more complicated when the fiery head of the Grievance Committee (Doris Day) falls head over heels in love with the new Supervisor. Will love conquer all or will their differing ideologies tear them apart? The Technicolor sets are pretty and some of the songs went on to become classics ("Hey There", "Steam Heat", "Hernando's Hideaway"), but the real star of the show is Bob Fosse's wonderfully complex choreography. The rest is just so much fluff and frosting with a bit of sanitized socialist rhetoric thrown in for good measure.

Not as good as I thought it would be. Very similar in storyline to Made in Dagenham.
