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>

Marvelous picture.
25 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Diana Dors made me a fan of hers in this movie. She plays Janice, pregnant and ignore by her husband Mickey. She feels he cares more about his job then her. I feel the best scene was when they had just finished watching the John Wayne movie and a cloud appears at her feet as Mickey narrates. Diana was absolutely perfect in this film. She is a good actress. This is the only Diana Dors film I have seen but I am looking forward too seeing many more. She wore the right clothes in the film, did the right movements in the film, she was just perfect. Also, the women that plays Janice's mother was very good in the film playing a lazy woman who always complains when she has to do work and Mickey ends up having to do the work. They have the most cute Dog! I give this move a 10
