It Happened to Jane 1959 Doris Day Family Comedy
Stars: Doris Day, Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs
It Happened to Jane Story Line. Jane Osgood is trying to support her two young children by running a lobster business. After one of her shipments is ruined by inattention at the railroad station, Jane decides to take on Harry Foster Malone. Harry is the director of the line and the “meanest man in the world”. With the help of her lifelong friend and lawyer George Denham, Jane sues Malone for the price of her lobsters and her lost business. What she ends up with is a lot more than either of them bargained for.
Doris Day is full of pluck and moxie fighting a big corporate jerk who actually seems unhinged in his quest to squash the hard working widow. Jack is the earnest lawyer who has loved her since childhood. Together they make a wonderful pair as they go through no end of complications that drive them apart and united them again. This is a cute family comedy with wonderful location shooting and high production values as well as a super supporting cast.
