Great writing, techno-modernist look & killer performance by Audrey Meadows make this film a must!


Great writing, cool gowns, and Cary Grant panache only begin to describe the pleasures of this surprisingly refreshing film. Cary Grant is an overly-controlling business executive; Gig Young plays his side-kick, junior, and alter-ego. Doris Day is strong-willed and fun to watch, but Audrey Meadows is sensational in her over-the-top performance as Doris Day's older and wiser roommate. Two scenes stand out: one in the fabled NY quick-meal restaurant, the Automat, the other a computer room scene that has to be seen by anyone who knows what IBM stands for. See this movie. It will surprise you.

One of the very best!


People complaining of the dumb/dated plot need to remember that this film is one of a genre and that films of that genre all have the same basic plot. Don't go into it expecting to find something else; allow yourself to accept the basic premise. This is one of THE best of the perpetual-virgin genre, and of course Day was the leading star of same. The script sparkles and the supporting players really add to the total package. John Astin is delightfully smarmy as the cheapskate lothario ("Muscatel, for my lady's pleasure") and John Fiedler is the ultimate mama's boy. Gig Young is unforgettable. Enjoy this fantastically silly movie!

The Only Doris Day - Cary Grant Film...and the Only One to Answer a Sports Trivia Question

Question: Name the film where Art Passarella, famous baseball umpire, tosses out five celebrities from a game.

Answer: THAT TOUCH OF MINK. Passarella tosses out Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Yogi Berra, Cary Grant, and Doris Day from a game, because of some rule infraction caused by Day (who is in the dugout with the others during a game), and then for escalating reasons in which the three Yankees deny any infraction.

The reason Doris and Cary are in the dugout is that they are attending a Yankee Game (Cary has some stock in the Yankees - this film was in the period before George Steinbrenner took control of the baseball team.

Grant is a multi-millionaire whose limousine has damaged Days' clothing by spraying her when the car went through a puddle. He (at first) just wants to repair the damage but he slowly falls for her. But Day is acting like ... well like Day usually does; She is a NYC career woman, and does not want to be the victim of hanky-panky from any man. She is egged on in this by her closest friend, Audrey Meadows. Grant slowly uses his considerable economic muscles to get Day to agree to a trip to the Caribbean, but he finds having her there is not the same thing as getting to know her physically there.

This film is loaded with nice bits by the supporting players. One of the other reviews points out John Astin as an obnoxious suitor for Day, whom (at the end) she does willingly go out to a motel in New Jersey with, only to have him fail to score when Grant shows up. But also see this for Gig Young, as Grant's secretary, who finds that Grant's effortless economic and social success are undermining Young's delicate mental balance. See it too for Alan Hewitt, as Young's therapist, who finds that it really pays to have Young as a client (because of all the great stock market tips the naive secretary blabs to the Doctor). Their last moment on screen together is quite funny, when Young is gushing over the baby he is watching (actually Grant and Day's child) and Hewitt is momentarily left thinking that somehow Young and Grant had a baby together. Finally, the late John Fiedler has a good moment as a newlywed husband who concludes that a man's best friend is his mother.

An easy to take Day sex romp, I recommend it for the amusement it generates. The baseball trivia connection is also a reason (though a minor one) to watch the film at least once.
