Bachelor Mother
Versatile Ginger Rogers proves that her sense of timing extends beyond the realm of song and dance into that of comedy in this sharp, sophisticated and hilarious romantic comedy. She plays single department store clerk Polly Parrish, an upstanding young woman who invites scandal when she chooses to adopt the baby she found abandoned on her doorstep. Naturally everyone assumes that she has joined the ranks of the fallen women. The real laughs come when her dashing, womanizing boss (David Niven) tries to straighten the girl out.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Grason Kanin's witty comedy in which Ginger Rogers plays a single mother was a commercial hit, demonstrating her viability as a dramatic actress and comedienne after her separation from dance partner Fred Astaire."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Makes the most of a misunderstanding over maternity."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Okay comedy that ought to have been great."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
