After a shipment of fresh lobsters isn't delivered on time to Jane Osgood (Doris Day) - a widowed mother of two running a failing restaurant supply business – she hires her lawyer friend and admirer George Denham (Jack Lemmon) to sue the railroad company and the railroad's tyrannical owner, Harry Foster Malone (Ernie Kovacs). Jane wins in her local courthouse, but Malone agrees to pay only for the lobsters, not damages. She refuses his offer on principle and the battle is on. The court case generates lots of publicity and Osgood becomes famous. A charismatic news reporter (Steve Forrest) takes to Osgood, but that doesn't sit well with Denham, who also has eyes for her!
