REVIEW:

One of the most popular romantic comedies staring two of Hollywoodís most beloved actors Cary Grant and Doris Day, Touch of Mink is a funny, charming, and warm love story with plenty of sharp witty dialogue and compelling characters. Cary Grant and Doris Day make a great team and provide plenty of laughs and emotional moments. Both actors elevate this rather unoriginal script into a something that feels fresh and new.

An interesting note is that That Touch of Mink was Grantís last role as the suave pursuer of the young female lead. Although in his next role he had a relationship with Audrey Hepburn in Charade (1963), she was the pursuer at Grantís request, because of the 25 year age difference. Grant made it clear that he was not to be the pursuer in Charade noting that it would be odd for someone of his age to chasing someone half his age. So, Hepburn was the one chasing.

In Touch of Mink, Cathy Timberlake (Day) is a New York City career woman who meets the sophisticated man of her dreams, Philip Shayne (Grant), in an unusual way. His Rolls Royce splashes her dress with mud while she is on her way to a job interview. Interested, the two being dating with Philip making it obvious, through his bold advances, that he wants to make love with Cathy, who is a virgin. But Cathy is reluctant.

Both go on several dates with each other, but each date has its own challenge and provides plenty of comedic scenes. Philip takes her to see the New York Yankees play. He takes her to Bermuda, in the chance the two could make love, but she comes down with a rash and the trip is a bust. Later, they try another trip, but Cathy has one too many drinks and makes a fool of herself. The trip again is a bust.

This game of who will give in first is settled by the end. Cathy eventually wins this skirmish between the sexes and they get married. Ironically, on their honeymoon, he breaks out in a rash. Cary Grant is the best at playing the sophisticated suave man in his past films, and here heís no different.

There were only a handful of films that Cary did in the 60ís. That was the decade where new actors such as James Dean and Paul Newman were hitting the scene, hard. They brought with them a new style of acting that put actors such as Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart on the shelf. They represented the old Hollywood while Newman and Dean were the new, and helped to draw in the new rebellious generation to the theaters.

Touch of Mink was the last of Grantís romantic comedies and it was certainly a fine ending to a stellar career to what many consider him to be the actor of his time, second only to Bogart; although some might even debate that notion. Touch of Mink is the perfect film for those who appreciate classic Hollywood at its best, and it's certainly worth a watch. If youíre a fan of Cary Grant or Doris Day, then youíve most likely seen Touch of Mink, and if you havenít, look for it.
