Where The Boys Are
1960
Where The Boys Are, written by George Wells  was based on four college co-eds who spend spring break in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with the hope of having fun in the sun and meeting lots of boys.  Merrit, the most free thinking of the group soon meets an Ivy League senior who also happens to be very, very rich. Tuggle's main challenge in life is that she is probably the tallest girl at her school but may have found her soul mate in the form of the even taller TV Thompson. Angie is looking for any boy who might think she's attractive and focuses her chances on an oddball musician, Basil. Finally, there's Melanie, the youngest who is away from home for the first time in her life and is the first of the group to hook up with someone. She has mixed up with a bad crowd however, and is assaulted. All of the young women learn something about life from their trip.​

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.
