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.

i just saw this movie for the first time ever the other day. i watched it because my uncle loves it and keeps telling me to watch it. i found out it is out of print and to me (now that i've seen it) that is a crime. i fell in love with the film and wonder why that can't make 'em like that anymore. and as for george gobel this was the first i've seen of him but i can tell you he was great in this film. now i see why my uncle goes on and on about him. if this film ever gets re-issued i'll be first in line to buy it. four stars for this film. and a big four stars for lonesome george.
