Best Movie Phone Scenes

Rock Hudson and Doris Day's characters in the Oscar-winning 1959 romcom Pillow Talk famously got together through them sharing a telephone line, known at the time as a "party line".

To celebrate the film's Blu-ray release we've put together a list of our other favourite movie phone scenes from, from Pillow Talk's split-screen phone chats over the now obsolete party line, to Bill and Ted's phone booth adventures and Keanu Reeves' frantic calls over a giant cellphone in early 90s thriller Speed.

Let us know your favourite phone scene, or any we've missed out, on Twitter or in the comments section below.
