"...This is the cream of the Doris Day-Rock Hudson-Tony Randall farces, an affectionately dated satire of Madison Avenue and sexual mores..." -- 3 out of 4 stars

"The tremendous Doris Day/Rock Hudson comedy LOVER COME BACK benefits from a sardonic, very cynical script by Stanley Shapiro and Paul Henning..."
Rival Madison Avenue ad executives Jerry Webster and Carol Templeton battle it out -- in hilarious fashion -- for control of a product that doesn't even exist. In the process, the two fall in love.
Jerry comes up with the idea for a product called VIP. But before the merchandise can actually be created, his bumbling boss, Peter Ramsey, accidentally announces that VIP is already available for sale.
When Carol finds out about the new product, she desperately tries to win the account from the man who supposedly developed it. To get her off track and keep her away from the real scientist working on VIP, Webster makes believe he's the inventor. Templeton falls for his scam and attempts to convince him that she should get the new account. Meanwhile, Jerry's masquerade grows more and more complex as he also tries to seduce Carol.
Will Jerry succeed or will Carol figure out what he's up to and turn the tables on him'
