That Touch of Mink (1962)

Delbert Mann directs Cary Grant, Doris Day and Gig Young in this romantic comedy where the CEO millionaire wants a dirty weekend, while the girl wants marriage.

Cary Grant infamously tried LSD in the 1960s. I’m guessing during the production of this clunker as you feel like he’s drifting somewhere else most of the time. He had more chemistry with his cardigans than he does with Day. It looks a million bucks but the “playful” attitude to the new permissiveness of the era must have felt mouldy even by the time That Touch of Mink was released.
