Libby has spent a whole month trying to get into show business with her singing, and has not made it. Therefore she decides to retire and get a job where she can meet the right man and get married. The right man turns out to be Paul Davis when she sees him at the supermarket. The only problem is that Paul ignores her as his ideal woman is TnT (tall and top heavy), which Libby is not. One day, Libby creates a clothes stand which she calls the 'Lady Valet'. This product interests Paul who wants to promote it. Paul gets Libby on the 'Tonight Show' to push the product and when she mentions that she was formerly a singer, Johnny asks her to sing. After that, the career in showbiz that she had not found grows, to the astonishment of Paul. She uses her new fame to get Paul's attention. Written by Tony Fontana <>

A Poem of Looking for Love
18 May 2007 | by (Budd Lake, NJ) – See all my reviews

Hello, dear mortals. Last Resort here To tell about a film that made Carson fans cheer.

This movie is called Looking for Love. The audience has a butt, and up it they will shove. Connie Francis is such a beaut. She's sexy, plucky, and glamorous to boot.

This movie is a musical, you see. The girls will love it and give it glee. It takes place in a sunny beach. Uh-oh, guys, another security breach!

Johnny Carson had a lot of wit. He made one movie, and that was it. So to see more Carson, don't be a bore, Just go watch the Tonight Show on WNBC, Channel 4.
