A Maine widow becomes a cause celebre when she sues a railroad tycoon over the loss of a valuable shipment of lobsters.
A Capra-esque comedy has Day running a New England lobstery and finding herself up against railroad tycoon Kovacs. When a shipment of expired lobsters arrives, Day decides to take the capitalist to court. With good friend Lemmon, she hires a lawyer, and in the spirit of small-town America, emerges victorious.
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 compensation from the railroad's tyrannical owner, Harry Foster Malone (Ernie Kovacs). 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.
