Film: That Touch of Mink

That Touch of Mink (1962)           Wednesday, June 5, 2pm
When people referred to Doris Day as "the world's oldest professional virgin," they generally had the 1962 comedy That Touch of Mink in mind. It isn't that Cathy Timberlake (Day) is above a bit of hanky-panky; it's just that she wants Phillip Shayne (Cary Grant) to provide a marriage license and wedding ring first. The high-powered supporting cast includes Gig Young as Roger, Philip's moralistic financial advisor; Audrey Meadows as Connie, Cathy's wise-cracking roommate; Alan Hewitt as Dr. Gruber, a confused psychiatrist; and John Astin as Beasley, Cathy's slimy would-be beau. Best scene: the baseball-dugout rhubarb involving New York Yankees Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Yogi Berra.
Stars: Cary Grant, Doris Day, Gig Young, Audrey Meadows       1h 40min | Comedy, Romance
