Carol sues the advertising agency for slander, but since the "defamation" occurs in a magazine ad, the correct charge would be libel (libel is printed, slander is spoken). See more »

Carol is shocked when an ad makes her look awfully stupid.
15 July 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Carol and June are both friends who have been hired to pose for an ad for hosiery. When the ad debuts, Carol is furious as the ad makes her look like a loser. So she gets her friend Grady to sue the company. Soon, after an injunction, the ad campaign and the finances of the company are all tied up. A rival company offers to pay Carol to continue the suit and the plaintiffs try to pay her to drop the suit. Soon they're involved in a bidding war....and Carol has many options.

This is a clever but not excessively funny little comedy. In other words, don't look for big laughs...just an enjoyable and cute film that is worth seeing if you like old time comedies.
