That Touch of Mink

Delbert Mann (1962)

Our Score
Doris Day co-stars with Cary Grant in this charming if dated romantic comedy. The movie only works if you accept the premise that Day won't sleep with Grant, which might have made sense back in 1962 (the year before the Beatles) but hardly makes any sense at all now: after all, these are two of the best-looking and most sophisticated people in the world. But that's the plot - will she or won't she, and we know she won't. This is quintessential Day fluff, complete with quite unnecessary heavily gauzed close-ups, and Grant can barely disguise the fact that he's getting a little too long in the tooth for such foolishness. Nevertheless, it's still a lot of fun.


A sophisticated millionaire businessman goes in passionate pursuit of a strait-laced secretary. She is also attracted to him, but is saving herself for marriage while he only wants a casual affair. However, she remains convinced he is the man for her and tries to change his ways. Romantic comedy, starring Cary Grant, Doris Day, Gig Young, John Astin and Audrey Meadows.
