On This Day...That Touch of Mink (1962)

Today in 1962, saw the release of Cary Grant's 69th film...That Touch of Mink.

In his one and only film with Doris Day, Cary Grant plays wealthy bachelor, Philip Shayne.
After his Rolls Royce splashes Cathy Timberlake (Doris Day), a frenzied cat and mouse romance begins.

"The recipe is potent: Cary Grant and Doris Day...Pure gag-propelled farce." - Variety

"The only significant difference between Lover Come Back and That Touch of Mink is that in Lover Come Back the Cary Grant part is played by Rock Hudson, and in That Touch of Mink the Cary Grant part is played by Cary Grant. When it comes to playing Cary Grant, nobody can beat Cary Grant." - The New Yorker

With Gig Young, who plays Cary Grant's assistant, Roger.
