Among this film's distinguishing elements is its innovative use of the wide-screen format, specifically its sly sexual innuendos created by split screen optics, the most famous of which suggests Doris Day and Rock Hudson are sharing a bathtub, and that his toes sliding down the wall tickle her instep.

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 »
So there I was, in my sick-bed when this film comes on. I start to watch, having never seen it before, and to my surprise, find myself laughing...out loud.
I have never really been a fan of either Doris Day or Rock Hudson, but I did enjoy this piece of fluff. And in our modern times when comedies currently released in the cinema can hardly raise a smile, let alone a laugh, I found this a pure delight. So the sexual politics maybe a little outdated, but there were some beautifully timed comedy set-pieces: The moment Doris Day discovers the real identity of Hudson's character has one of the best use of music I have seen in a movie since the Warner Bros cartoons!
A film that I didn't think I would enjoy, but was completely bowled over by.
