40s/50s US film about a publicist trying to find a slogan

Hi all,

I am desperately looking for the title of a film I saw a long time ago. It was an American comedy from the 40s or 50s, black and white. I don't remember much of the story although I know the main characters were a publicist (working in NYC?), his family and his maid. He is desperate to find a slogan for a new campaign and at the end of the film, the maid finds it. The plot also involves a summer house in the country or something of that kind.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
