Lover Come Back (20-Dec-1961)

Director: Delbert Mann

Writers: Stanley Shapiro; Paul Henning

Music: Frank De Vol

Producers: Stanley Shapiro; Martin Melcher

Keywords: Romantic Comedy, Advertising

Carol Templeton and Jerry Webster work for a Fifth Avenue advertising agency; after Jerry uses strippers and booze to land an account, Carol is justifiably upset (and she's never actually met Jerry). Also, Jerry has developed a campaign for "Vip", a vague product which does not exist and when spots were accidentally broadcast, he must scramble to have some manner of product invented. Stylish and funny comedy. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Story and Screenplay.
