It Happened To Jane DVD
In this classic romantic comedy, Jane Osgood (Doris Day), a single mom with two children, is in the live lobster business. But when her first big order for the Marshall Town Country Club turns up dead through no fault of her own, it kills her chances for a successful season. Discovering budget cuts at the railroad are to blame, she turns to George Denham (Jack Lemmon), her longtime admirer and an attorney, to seek compensations from the railroad's tyrannical owner, Harry Foster Malone (Ernie Kovacs). Jane wins in her local courthouse, but Malone agrees to pay only for the lobsters, not damages. She refuses his offer on principle and the battle is on. The press has a field day with this modern-day David and Goliath story. And the whole country turns to Cape Anne, Maine, to watch as one woman stands up to "the meanest man in the world." It could happen to anyone, but...It Happened To Jane.

Comments about this product:
This is a 1959 great comedy. It has 3 great stars: Doris Day, Jack Lemmon and Ernie Kovacs.
Doris Day is a widow with two children, a boy and a girl. Jack Lemmon is a bachelor and in love with Doris since they were children, attorney and boy scout leader. Ernie Kovacs is the new head of the northeastern railroad and calls all women "broads". Steve Forrest is a newspaper reporter assigned to get the story on the lawsuit, and shortly proposes marriage.
Some of the scenes that I like are as follows.
When Doris discovers that her lobsters came back dead on "old 97" steam locomotive.
When Doris gives Steve a tour around town, her great grandfather established Cape Anne, ME during the revolutionary war.
To raise money, Doris appears on many 1950's television shows, like Gary Moore's "I've Got A Secret" if you are old enough to remember watching them!
At a town meeting, the folks turn against Doris because Ernie cut railroad service to the town, Jack blasts the townsfolk for not blaming the villain and he wins as first selectman! He asks the townsfolk to gather coal, Doris and I taking the "old 97" to market.
Ernie routes the train thru every whistle in the whole of New England.
You just have to watch the ending!
Just for your information, I saw Gary Moore in 1975 in a country grocery store in Northeast Harbor, ME. The second time I saw him was in a book store, I said as passing out the door, "It's a beautiful day. It's sunny, not too hot and not too cold." Stunned, he replied, "Yes." with a smile. Who shy me, speak to a celebrity?
I guarantee that you will like this movie.
