Bachelor Mother

Bachelor Mother
Released Date: August 4, 1939
Director: Garson Kanin
Actors: Ginger Rogers, David Niven, Charles Coburn, Frank Albertson, E.E. Clive, Elbert Coplen Jr., Ferike Boros, Ernest Truex, Leonard Penn, and Paul Stanton

     David Niven and Ginger Rogers light up the screen with comedy, love and fun. I have always had a huge crush on David Niven. I'm not sure if it is his distinguished mustache or his accent, but I love him. I have also always loved Ginger Rogers. Her dancing, her grace, her beauty and this movie shows her acting range. Perfection, is Ginger Rogers.

     Polly Parrish (Ginger Rogers) has just been fired from Merlin's Department Store. And for a single woman living in the city, that makes things rather difficult. But due to hilarious mishaps, she is mistaken as the mother of a baby that has just been abandoned at a church. David Merlin (David Niven) is the stores manager and owner, and is outraged at this turn of events. He believes that the baby is hers, even though she is constantly telling him that it isn't. This movie is hilarious, and cute. And I enjoyed every minute. With David Merlin and Polly Parrish falling in love, around the holidays, it is a true holiday classic. Even though when we think of "Holiday Classic," we think of It's A Wonderful Life and others along that line. But this is truly a classic too. :) And one I believe you will enjoy too.
