The Happy Soap Company is owned and managed by the Fraleigh family. Although he is more of a company figurehead than an active participant in the company's day-to-day business, anything that family patriarch Tom Fraleigh wants for the company he usually gets. What he wants is Beverly Boyer - the wife of his daughter-in-law's obstetrician, Dr. Gerald Boyer - to appear as the company spokesperson when Beverly, who he meets at a small dinner party, mentions a personal and true story about how Happy Soap saved her life. She is to appear in a live commercial spot during a Happy Soap sponsored television show telling her story just as she told Tom. Despite Beverly's performance going poorly in her own mind, Tom loved it and how refreshing and honest Beverly came across to the viewer. So Tom signs her to a one year, $80,000 contract to continue doing the same. This move is questioned by Happy Soap's own managers and its advertising company. But it is questioned even more by Gerald, who ... Written by
When older Mr. Fraleigh tells his underling to put a swimming pool in Beverly Boyer's (Doris Day) backyard before the commercial for the following night, the workmen are on site the next morning, constructing the pool, and it is complete that night. There is at least one problem which would make that impossible, curing (hardening) the concrete would take much longer than even 24 hours, which is double the amount of time depicted. See more »

This one is pretty tops in my book. Love the older movies of the 30's to mid 60's when writing was number one and stars were STARS. Doris Day can't give a bad performance, and in this one she's really in her league. An underrated comic actress who could give lessons to these up and coming bimbos. James Garner is his usual self, and that ain't bad. The sub plot of Arlene Francis' pregnancy is what starts the ball rolling. Best scenes are the Doris Days commercials, especially the first one. She out does Lucy! For shear entertainment, don't miss this one. Oh, twin beds for two attractive and sexy people? Too bad the movies were so "proper" in those days. Aside from that, the oldies are really goodies! Not one swear word, no nudity, no sex scenes. How refreshing.
