Rock Hudson turned down the film three times, believing the script to be "too risqué". See more »
A party line phone would not ring when any phone on the line was off-hook. To call the other phone on your line, you had to dial a special code and then hang up and wait for your phone to stop ringing, indicating that the other party had answered. This is not how Jan Morrow does it. See more »

As Doris Day sings 'Pillow Talk' over the closing credits, the film finishes with 'the end' on two horizontal pillows' followed by 'not quite' 'not quite' 'not quite' 'not quite' stacked vertically on four pillows. See more »
Fabulous Doris Day and the equally enigmatic Rock Hudson work wonderfully together to create this stylish comedy. Witty lines and double entendre trip off their tongues with ease in one of the best and funniest films I have seen for a long time. Doris Day looks fantastic, in what I would consider the greatest film of her career and Rock Hudson shines in his double role - watch out for the scenes where the Doctor and Nurse mistakenly believe him to be pregnant! Would advise anyone to watch whether a fan of Doris or not.
