Throwback Thursday: "That Touch of Mink"

Have you watched any old movies lately? Last night I came across "That Touch of Mink" on TV (Cary Grant and Doris Day) and marveled at all the changes since 1962, when the movie was released. For example: 

  • The show featured a Univac computer that filled the whole room -- and used punch cards! 
  • The telephones have rotary dials.

Here's the trailer from this classic movie. Let me know what other changes you notice. Would this plot draw many viewers today?


  1. I love this! One of my favorite movies ever!!! Weren't they the pair??? LOL Yes so much has changed since 1962...don't know that this new generation would appreciate this wholesome movie today:)

  2. Ohhh Thanks for sharing this trailer. I used to love those old movies, especially ones with Cary Grant. I wonder if Netflix has this.
