Box set containing three classics films starring Doris Day. In 'The Thrill of it All' (1963), chirpy housewife Beverly Boyer (Doris Day) becomes a celebrity overnight after inadvertently charming the manufacturer of Happy Soap at a dinner party. After a single television appearance Beverly becomes an advertising star - much to the chagrin of her neglected husband, obstetrician Gerald (James Garner). In 'Young at Heart' (1954), Barney Sloan (Frank Sinatra) is a cynical, down-on-his-luck musician, who reluctantly agrees to help his composer friend Alex Burke (Gig Young) with a new comedy he is working on. However, Barney gains a new perspective on life and love when he meets Alex's irrepressibly perky fiancée, Laurie (Day) - and promptly falls in love with her. In 'It Happened to Jane' (1959), Jane Osgood (Day) is a struggling widow with two children who runs her own restaurant and lobster house. When the actions of an unscrupulous railroad boss destroys her latest lobster shipment, Jane calls on the services of her best friend, lawyer George Denham (Lemmon). Denham wants to do everything he can to help, in the hope that Jane will realise he has always been in love with her.
