That Touch of Mink (1962)

A very cute romantic comedy. Cathy Timberlake (Doris Day) is on her way to a job interview. She is standing on a street corner when a Rolls Royce limousine owned by Philip Shayne (Cary Grant) splashes her with mud. Well of course she does not get the job. Shayne does not have time to stop but he feels guilty for what happened and sends his assistant, Roger (Gig Young) out to look for her. When he finds her he brings her up to meet Mr Shayne. Well of course he finds her extremely attractive and wants to have an affair with her. The only problem is that she is still a virgin and wants to remain so until marriage. Cathy's roommate, Connie (Audrey Meadows), tries to warn Cathy about a man like Shayne but she will not listen. She ends up going on a trip to the Caribbean with Philip and that is when the real comedy begins. Now what will happen with the pure young woman and the handsome bachelor?

This movie was very cute even though it is outdated now. Day and Grant were wonderful as the mismatched couple. Look for cameos by Micky Mantle, Yogi Barra and Roger Maris. If you like romantic comedies then this is a must see.
