It Happened to Jane
Doris Day stars in a true-to-type performance as Jane Osgood, a spunky, pretty, wronged widow with two children. She manages her own lobster business, and the railroad has just trashed a shipment, killing them off before they could ever be properly boiled to death for someone's dinner. Jane commissions her lawyer (and potential romantic partner) George Denham (Jack Lemmon) to take on the railroad and its nefarious owner, Harry Foster Malone (Ernie Kovacs). Thus, the battle between the unjustly treated Jane and the arrogant railroad boss begins.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An amiable but stiff populist comedy that should have been funnier since it starred the talented Doris Day, Jack Lemon and Ernie Kovaks."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A likeable cast just can't salvage this utterly inconsequential romantic comedy..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
