Quotes

Gus Kahn: [sings this to the tune of It Had to Be You] It had to be me that had to get you. I stand 5 foot 10, a man among men, but you're 7'2. I meet lots of girls when I make the rounds, but none are like you 7 foot 2, 70 pounds, but you make me thrill and you always will. I realize Betty you look like spaghetti, but what can I do? It's your fingertips that I adore; when you stand up they touch the floor. It had to be you, wonderful you, 7 foot 2.

User Reviews

The story is a charming romance, and Doris Day's character is sweet, but also aggressive. She doesn't let anyone push her around, especially her husband.
18 August 1999 | by Singer-9See all my reviews

The first time I saw Doris Day, was in "Pillow Talk". Since then I've grown very fond of her quirky personality on screen. She brings any role she plays to life before your eyes. This romantic comedy is a great example of her ability to make you care for a character's welfare. You want more than anything for she and her husband to succeed. Doris Day lights up the screen, as always.
