I'm slightly ashamed of my fondness for this movie - but Audrey Meadows ia always a treat, John Astin is wonderfully slimy, and of course the triumvirate of Doris Day, Cary Grant, and Gig Young can do little wrong. Those who remember Richard Deacon from the Dick Van Dkye Show may also enjoy his brief appearances here.

However: I was hugely looking forward to seeing the picture in its original aspect ratio (2:35:1) and was enormously disappointed that this release is pan-and-scan after the titles. The video quality is, as another reviewer said, approximately that of a VHS tape. Given that there are other releases available, do NOT buy this one.

I am also disappointed that Amazon UK seems to make few of these technical details available - they (or at least the US site) used to. We should not have to rely on customer reviews to find out too late we made a mistake.

The movie itself is great. But the DVD-Release...

Starts in the correct picture ratio 2.35:1 - although not anamorphic - and ends after the main titles in 1,33:1 Pan and Scan.

The picture looks grainy and dirty. Looks like an old VHS-Fullscreen Master. No extras - not even a trailer - Universal you can do much better!

Not the best of Cary Grant or Doris Day, but as a pairing piece it's most entertaining. Directed by Delbert Mann and coming partly from the pen of producer Stanley Shapiro (Pillow Talk & Lover Come Back), it's a brisk, dialogue driven humour laden piece that revels in a sort of smug awareness. Not that that is a bad thing at all, it works; just about. The problems arise within the film's structure if you have grown tired of this sort of formula, even the two main leads themselves appear to be a bit too far down the road to make it a totally excellent comedy (Grant was in his late 50s here), they just about make it an entertaining watch thanks to the cheeky script (Oscar Nominated) as does the efforts of Gig Young (Roger), John Astin (Beasley) and the delightful Audrey Meadows as Cathy's room mate Connie Emerson.

Approach with caution if you are a first time viewer, if you have seen a ream of romantic/sex/comedies then this will have nothing new for you. What it does guarantee is some memorable moments, some sly little jokes and most certainly a cast that owe nobody anything in return for your time. 6.5/10

The release of this movie by OLIVE FILMS released in 2013 on both DVD and Blu-Ray is the cleaner sharper looking print with the full wide, wide screen ratio. Look for that and not this one (or others) if you want to see the movie close to how it was originally released. It has a white cover with the stars heads enclosed by a wedding ring.

She's an unemployed computer operative - he's a rich businessman. She wants marriage - he wants an affair. Prepare yourself for a classic 1960s battle of the sexes comedy.

Doris Day is her usual adorable self as the good girl who has come from a small town to make something of herself in New York, and Cary Grant is suave and debonair. But the real joy of this film is not in the characters, or even the jokes (some of which are a little thin), but in the detail. The depictions of early 1960s New York are fabulous, and so are the cars and the clothes. Doris flies on a plane; she eats lunch at an automat; she's taken to Bergdorf Goodman for a new wardrobe; she works with a hilarious vision of a 1960s computer complete with flashing lights. How much more modern could you get in 1962? This is a wonderful view of glamour and modernity, 1960s-style, and a classic depiction of a girl Having It All in the city.

I've seen this movie a couple of times, but have to admit it's always been a yawn for me. Grant, in my opinion, was showing his age, and -- for a young woman intent on protecting her virginity -- so was Day.

The age disparity between the two actors isn't as obvious as it was with such pairings as Gable/Monroe, Gable/Day, Grant/Caron, Crosby/Kelly, etc., and the worst example, a haggard Cooper with a luminous Audrey Hepburn. But it's still there. And I didn't think there was much chemistry between the two. In Grant's best romantic stuff from the Fifties on, I think he was best paired with women who came across as smart, sophisticated...and who could play with Grant the sexual flirtation games with knowing amusement. I'm recalling Kelly, Bergman, Hepburn, Saint, even Brigitte Auber. That style was never Day's.

In my view, the movie isn't a bust, but it's not a winner, either.

Taking note of the comments re. film's transfer to DVD already made in other reviews (but why the "pan and scan" Universal?), "That Touch Of Mink" remains one of the best of Doris Day's `60s "virgin" comedies - and one of the funniest. Here she's pursued by smooth, multi-millionaire business man Cary Grant (he wants an affair, she's looking for marriage)resulting in several disastrous liaisons. Grant, as ever, displays his comic skills with usual casual ease and he's matched with equal aplomb by office right hand man Gig Young, giving one of his best performances. There's also a couple of hilarious brief sequences featuring John Astin (whose star would hit its height as a member of tv's Addams family) as a really slimy suitor. It's 90 minutes of great fun that was an essential part of a movie making era where script and performances ruled the roost. Wonderful, wonderful.
