The Major and the Minor

Goofball comedy with Ginger Rogers pretending to be a twelve-year-old so she can afford the train fare back to Iowa, having fallen foul of one-too-many sleazebags in the Big Apple. Dodging conductors on-board she stumbles into the compartment of Ray Milland who doesn't see through her ruse, though his fiancee and her daughter have their suspicions. Not surprising considering Ginger was 30 years old at the time! Billy Wilder's debut film in America is a delightful romp, and has a small role for Ginger's real-life mum as her character's mother.
