43. ‘Teacher’s Pet’ (1958)
Hollywood stars Doris Day and Clark Gable battle it out in the classroom. She’s a devoted, outspoken journalism professor, he’s a hardboiled newspaperman who has snuck into her course because he’s attracted to her sauciness. They fly at each other when he, pretending to be a journalist novice, keeps correcting her lectures. This might be Gable’s best role in the last years of his life, and Day proves that she’s a mighty underrated screwball comedian.
