Description
Unemployed Polly Parrish (Ginger Rogers) impulsively picks up a baby left at orphanage doors at Christmas. Everyone assumes the foundling is hers, including Polly’s playboy ex-boss (David Niven), who offers her a job if she’ll live up to her maternal duties. A paycheck would be handy, so Polly complies. Then the boss’s tycoon dad (Charles Coburn) assumes the infant is his secret grandson…and things really spin out of control. Buoyed by Rogers’ irresistibly endearing performance, Bachelor Mother is one of those rarities, a brilliantly cast comedy where everything – plot, pacing and dialogue (thanks to Garson Kanin’s savvy direction and Norman Krasna’s witty script) – is exactly, hilariously right.

        This was manufactured on a demand disc. I will not think twice about purchasing an older movie done on this format. TCM has taken great care in preserving old films.

              It improves my mood on a bad day. It gives me a chance to show my grandchildren how to make the best of tough situations. What makes this movie great for is how each actor seemed so suited to the character they played.

                      Ginger Rogers is adorable in this wonderful romantic comedy. I actually loved ALL the characters in the film - packed with unexpected twists leading to a modified version of a happy ending.

                        I usually watch movies at home, but sometimes I've loaned them out to other people who appreciate a good quality classic movie. I love this movie. It's not your typical Christmas / New Year's movie. It stands alone. Hilarious, witty, engaging....I would highly recommend it. HA ha...... :-)

                            Love this actress, Ginger Rogers, fantastic story. Remakes are not as good. Movies in the 1930/1940 era are the best. Movies of today are not good.

                              Comments about this product:

                              This is one of my favorite "Christmas" movies; a romantic comedy, and Ginger Rogers is so engaging as Polly Parish, the single woman mistaken for a baby's mother. She finds the baby left outside a foundling home and picks him up and takes him inside so he won't fall down the steps.(This is erroneously described in the movie synopsis above.) The home administrators naturally think it is her baby. She works for John B. Merlin and Son department store, and was just discharged that day. The home administrators convince Merlin to give her the job back, certain that is why she abandoned her baby. Merlin (the son) tries to help Parish and falls in love. A lot of the humor comes in the form of "who is the father?" David Niven is good as David Merlin (the son) and Charles Coburn is perfect as the wanna-be grandfather.
