Storyline

Marshall Briggs, of the Sutton Advertising Agency, is hard-pressed to come up with an idea to follow his successful "Miss Luxenberg" beauty contest for the Luxenberg Beer company. His original contest popularized Luxenberg Beer and led to his marriage to the winner, Janice Blake. Pushed by his boss, Frederick W. Sutton, to come up with a new idea, Marshall has neglected his wife, and his mother-in-law is suggesting to her daughter that her husband is running around on her. Meanwhile, Janice learns that she is pregnant. Marshall decides that since Janice is no longer "Miss Luxenberg" but "Mrs. Luxenberg" a great idea would be to round up all the former winners, who have married, and have a "Mrs. Luxenberg" contest. Running the idea up the old flagpole (per 1950s Madison Avenue advertising custom) reveals that the last winner is pregnant and most of the former winners have gotten fat drinking Luxenberg Beer. But the contest has already been launched. Marshall's gray-flannel suit is in ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A Few Steps Above TV, With Some Good Actors
5 June 2003 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

This is probably more fun now than it was when it came out.

It's a bit of black and white nostalgia now. Then, it was a showpiece for George Gobel, improbably married to sexbomb Diana Dors -- I guess that was the "joke."

Jessie Royce Landis is fun, as always, and the supporting cast supports very well.

It's by no means awful. It's kind of a man's fantasy about being a wimp who's adored by a gorgeous girl -- not unlike the better and better known "Seven Year Itch."
