Product Description:

A little-known gem from 1959, this romantic comedy stars Doris Day (THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH), Jack Lemmon (SOME LIKE IT HOT), and Ernie Kovacs (BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE) in a classic tale of a small-town, underdog triumph over corrupt, big-business interests. Jane Osgood (Day) is a widowed mother who runs a struggling lobster business in coastal Maine, while Harry Malone (Kovacs) is a wealthy businessman who has bought out the local railroad. He harbors big plans for it, aiming to transform it into a luxury passenger train, replacing the freight train the residents of the area depend upon. When a large lobster shipment of Jane's is rerouted and returned to her dead, she decides to fight back, and sues Malone with the help of her longtime friend and lawyer George Denham. This instigates a battle of increasingly epic proportions, as Malone uses every trick in the book--as well as his massive bank account--to quell the resolve of the spitfire businesswoman; Jane, for her part, has public sympathy on her side. A reporter for the national news doing a story on Jane (Steve Forrest, MOMMIE DEAREST) begins to fall in love with her, and she is forced to decide between the romantic journalist and her childhood friend, George. The magical pairing of Lemmon and Day is augmented by the beautiful location photography in Maine and a stellar supporting cast including Mary Wickes (NOW, VOYAGER), Russ Brown (MOULIN ROUGE), and a rare film appearance from Kovacs.
