Did You Know?

In her autobiography, Doris Day wrote: "Of all the people I performed with, I got to know Cary Grant least of all. He is a completely private person, totally reserved, and there is no way into him. Our relationship on That Touch of Mink (1962) was amicable but devoid of give-and-take...Not that he wasn't friendly and polite - he certainly was. But distant. Very distant. But very professional - maybe the most professional, exacting actor I ever worked with. In the scenes we played, he concerned himself with every little detail: clothes, sets, production values, the works. Cary even got involved in helping to choose the kind of mink I was slated to wear in the film."See more »
Continuity: When Roger falls down the stairs at Cathy's apt building, the stuntman's final positions on the landings after falling is different from the positions from which Gig stands up.See more »
Connie Emerson:[talking to Cathy] For 2000 years we've had their children, washed their clothes, cooked their meals and cleaned their houses. And what did they give us in return? The right to smoke in public. We sold out for a cigarette - and you don't even smoke!See more »

Cute movie, 3 June 2002
Author: watchitman from USA

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.
