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!

Touch of Mink - Pretty Amazing Film

I would not place 'Touch Of Mink' with the likes of Tarkovsky's films, but I will say that it is a beautifully-filmed fantasy that is really titillatingly funny in a genuinely charming way. Even the most serious film viewers cannot deny the smiles that are inevitable when Doris is on the screen. The film's story evolves when two lives are randomly thrown together - that of a hard-working waitress and a rich bachelor playboy. What ensues is delicious full-on Technicolor romantic comedy.

There are also some classic moments: The hand emerging from the 'atuomatic' restaurant where Doris and Audrey work to smack the face of a particularly offending male patron (those where the days when a woman could smack a man in a film and get great laughs...) - Doris's fantasy sequence as she's driven through the streets in a bed - with a man - and they're NOT MARRIED! It's a harmless, light film that still has such a centered beauty and sophistication that shows off the bright side of Hollywood-produced films of that era. As previous posters have commented, HD Digital video just cannot produce the same wonderful hues of celluloid - and there is something irresistible about Ms. Day in this film - her character's innocence is rather genuine, as is her male lead (Cary Grant) who obviously loves her for his ability to win her over with gifts and his own brand of charm.

I think it's important to have a second look at many of Doris Day's films in the lights of the 21st century. Touch of Mink, in particular, holds a dream-bubble of blissful idealism and moral irony that has incredible resonance today, when so many have found that we must reexamine our attitudes toward casual sex. This is the central core of the film, and many would now see's Ms. Day's character's reaction to such a thought as far more intelligent than when it was viewed in the 1970's- 80's.

Give the film a view; especially on a Friday night when you really, truly want to be entertained by a dazzling screen star.

Cute movie


Very cute movie. It was very enjoyable and put a smile on my face. It's obviously a bit dated, I doubt there are many young, independant working women that swoon over losing their virginity these days. I even doubt it was quite like that back in 1962. It's still very sweet and it would make a good date movie.

I should also mention the movie looks beautiful. Movies from this era tend to look great. The quality of production in movies seriously declined the closer Hollywood got to the 70's.
