That touch of mink - 1962

A mid-century modern Cinderella story. This movie – I love! You’ve got the incredibly sexy Cary Grant as the wealthy business man, Philip Shayne. The adorable Doris Day as the sweet “girl next door”, Cathy Timberlake. Her paranoia and modesty are entertaining in this cat and mouse chase but who’s the cat and who’s the mouse?  Any man playing a “Prince Charming” role quite possibly based their characters on the enticing Cary Grant character in “That touch of mink”. 

It’s charming and humorous. My favorite scene is when he flies back to their “get-away” place and finds her waiting for him – drunk. No wonder I have “Cinderella syndrome”.
