It's Back to the Sixties! at Trailers from Hell this week, with director Allan Arkush introducing 1963's "The Thrill of It All," starring Doris Day and James Garner.

Well on his way to leading man movie stardom, TV favorite Garner steps into the shoes of Rock Hudson and Cary Grant as Day’s latest partner in her increasingly popular series of glossy, sophisticated feminist comedy vehicles. Dick Van Dyke Show creator Carl Reiner provided the witty script and one of the cleverest trailers to be run on TFH. Garner and Day would reunite on MOVE OVER DARLING in roles initiated by Dean Martin and Marilyn Monroe when it was called SOMETHING’S GOT TO GIVE.
